Stratasys Ltd. unveiled the spin-off of its Selective Toner Electrophotographic Process (STEP) technology and forming of Evolve Additive Solutions. Evolve’s STEP technology—which began as electrophotography-based additive manufacturing (EPSD) in 2009—is aimed at producing parts at a cost, quality, and throughput comparable to traditional manufacturing processes.

Made In Space, Inc. (MIS) is celebrating the two-year anniversary of the Additive Manufacturing Facility (AMF) printing onboard the International Space Station (ISS). With two successful years of in-orbit manufacturing for both NASA and the U.S. National Laboratory, MIS plans to incorporate capabilities to allow operators aboard ISS to print with stronger, more complex materials such as metals, composites, and carbon nanotube-doped materials.
