The emergence of 3D printing has changed the way thousands of companies and individuals look at prototyping. Instead of outsourcing a project to be prototyped, then having to wait weeks or even months for the part to be produced, 3D printers have managed to allow individuals and small businesses to bring the prototyping process in-house.

When it comes to more complicated production projects such as the manufacturing of new electronics and electronic components, such outsourcing is still oftentimes required. With that said, one company based in Ontario, Canada, called Voltera, is trying to change this as well. Today Voltera has launched a ...
