Solid Concepts Helped Scanadu 3D Print a Working Tricorder (and Secure $12M in Financing)

You know it, we know it: the 3D printer is the forefather of the replicator, not MakerBot’s Replicator but Star Trek’s replicator, the incredible machine on the Enterprise’s deck that could compress energy and re-align molecules to reproduce anything and everything (and somehow was used primarily to make tea). Our contemporary version of the replicator (but perhaps it would be more proper to call it a “creator”), the FDM type to be precise, was just used by Solid Concepts, one of the largest “replicating” companies in the world, to create yet another item straight out of the Star Trek universe: the Tricorder.
