Carbon IPO Watch

Posted on Updated on

We all love 3D printing. Maybe we are still learning and exploring about 3D printing. We have enough knowledge and research on 3D printing.
At the beginning of 2014, we had very little resources. Now in 2019, we have so many 3D printing companies and universities research work.
We are using 3D printing in everyday life. We don’t know what is 3D printed stuff or not 3D print.
We have healthcare, related to 3D print we even don’t know.
We are learning about new technology day by day. More we read more we get an education.
It is been so many years. 3D printing companies are growing and blossoming:)

According to the Fox News,” An initial public offering (IPO) looks as if it could be approaching for Carbon, the Silicon Valley-based 3D printing unicorn that exploded onto the tech scene Opens a New Window. in 2015 and is probably best known for partnering with Adidas (NASDAQOTH: ADDYY) to produce running shoes with 3D-printed midsoles Opens a New Window.
Carbon’s co-founders were inspired to develop [DLS] by the robotic assassin T-1000 from the movie Terminator 2, which rises from a pool of liquid metal to assume the form of any person or object. Indeed, DLS “grows” polymer parts continuously from a pool of liquid resin by harnessing ultraviolet light and oxygen. The tech can be considered a close cousin of stereolithography, which 3D Systems invented”.
According to the Forbes and Carbon’s co-founder and CEO Joe DeSimone, “3-D Printing Unicorn Carbon, On Way To Expected IPO, Drops Resin Prices In Move CEO Calls seminal moment. It would help enable more widespread adoption of 3-D printing at scale. It’s not prototyping anymore, it’s production”.

3D printed personalized pills with MIT in Silicon Valley

Posted on

Multiply Labs makes robots that print customized pills.  A customer can select minerals, vitamins, or other compounds (caffeine, for instance) and specify dosages and release times.  This allows you to design a personalized capsule.  A two week supply is delivered to you.  You can update your capcule as your needs change.
According to their website, their technology allows supplements to be released in your body at different times throughout the day, optimizing the supplements’ absorption through a dissolution process.  The capsule is made up of two 3D printed compartments of varying thicknesses.  The “sooner release” corresponds to the compartment with the thinner wall, while the “later release” corresponds to the compartment with the thicker wall.  This technology uses knowledge of both robotics and pharmaceuticals.
Y Combinator, a startup incubator, has approached Multiply Labs to join it.  Multiply Labs has four co-founders, all in their 20s, Parietti (CEO), Tiffany Kuo MBA ’16 (head of marketing and operations), MBA candidate Joe Wilson (head of product), and Alice Melocchi (CTO).  According to Kuo “We took these ourselves when we first presented before Y Combinator,” she adds. “We equipped them with vitamins and a late-afternoon release of caffeine, to keep us at our best. And, hey, it worked.”
