3D Systems (DDD +0.7%) is acquiring Village Plastics, a maker of filaments for a variety of 3D printing materials. Terms are undisclosed. (PR)
3D says it will immediately integrate Village's materials and manufacturing tech to "accelerate its development of advanced filament-based materials" for its consumer/enthusiast-focused Cube and CubeX printers. Village Plastics could help the Cube line better compete against MakerBot's Replicator printer line.
