That's very interesting. I own both IRBT and DDD. Reading the article it made me think of CGNX of which I also own.

For example, the system can include a precision visual scanning device that will generate precise measurements of the product being fabricated

I can certainly see CGNX used for 3-D printing. I wonder if there is any info they are involved with it and if so, how much.

I've been patiently waiting for IRBT to come out with something new besides AVA. Although AVA sounds exciting, it's been two years since it was introduced with not much happening yet. I am hoping it speeds up with the new FDA approval for usage under certain circumstances.
