HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As 3D printing continues gaining mainstream momentum, the technology recently took a giant leap when the first 3D printer landed in space last week. The global visibility from the event is a promising development for forward-thinking company Changing Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: CHGT) as it pursues opportunities in the red-hot 3D printing sector.
Covered extensively by major domestic and international broadcast and print media outlets, the Zero G 3D printer arrived last week at the International Space Station (ISS) aboard the SpaceX Dragon rocket for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). While NASA intends to use 3D printers for experimental purposes with the hopes of printing parts for ISS on-demand, the event put a massive spotlight on the advances 3D printing can offer.
Projected to exceed $18 billion in revenues by 2018, 3D printing technology is quickly gaining traction with mainstream consumers and could be poised to surpass previous revenue projections.
“Having 3D printing associated with NASA brings instant credibility to the technology and, in turn, mainstream acceptance,” CHGT CEO Omar T. Durham said. “It is exciting that a globally recognized brand such as NASA is utilizing 3D printers on its missions.”
Changing Technologies, Inc. is an emerging technology company focused on developing innovative concepts to bring to consumers. It recently created a new subsidiary — 6th Dimension Technologies — to pursue additional growth areas and market needs in the booming 3D printing sector.
