3D printing given huge boost by Spanish government

3D PRINTING has a new backer – the Spanish government.

Spain’s board of ministers has shown massive support for HP’s 3D printing endeavors with a €21.3 million investment fund.

Industry experts are predicting the potential ‘revolutionary’ possibilities of 3D printing.

Head of the European Commission’s Futurium project, Andrus Ansip, said: “We see 3D printing and digital manufacturing as the next technological revolution.

“It will change the world to a similar or even bigger extent than the Web did over the last decade.”

HP employs 2,600 workers from its main printing division in Barcelona and expects to roll out 3D printing products to the public in 2016.
