Makerbot and StataSys

A few days ago there was an entry in the blog of Makerbot which proved the rumors: Makerbot is now a part of StataSys.

Makerbot will continue to work as a separat unit and still focus on the consumer market.



I  see it with mixed feelings: On one hand it is a big chance: Now Makerbot can use patents of StrataSys one of the biggest 3d printer companies and that could be a big benefit especially since the technology can be transfered and some of the experience could go to Makerbot.

On the other hand it always feel a little like a big player will get rid of a competer before he gets big enough to take a serious market share. Possible bad things that could happen: Price rises, redundancies and split. But the good once are very interesting: More solid base, knowledge- and patent transfers can help very much.

Time will show what will happen. I think it could be a big success if it will happen as it was intended. :)


You are using Google Chrome...

Do you know that Google is known for not respecting your privacy and using your data without really asking for it?
For instance Chrome will scan your computer and the files you saved on it, transfers data about your internet surfing to Google and creates a extensive profile about you as a Chrome user while combining those data with all other services of Google.

Additional information can be found here: Why you should not use Google products if you can avoid it.

Because of that I highly recommend using another browser:


If my website sucks, you do not need to visit it.
Have a nice day and think about how much you have payed to visit it? Nothing...
How many ads do you see at it? None.

How much money do I earn from it? Nothing.
Does it cost me something to host it? Hell yeah.

I do not see why I should provide it to you to be insulted?
