What’s next for 3D printing: Will the next wave of consumers abandon 3D printers?

A 3D printer, which prints digital copies of objects, is seen at a factory in Shanghai December 17, 2016.

REUTERS/Carlos Barria The maker of a consumer 3D-printed house said on Tuesday it had raised $10 million in a new round of funding.

The firm, which makes the 3D Printer House, said it had received $4.7 million in funding from the Draper Fisher Jurvetson, the Draper family investment firm, and the Fidelity fund.

The money comes as the company ramps up its manufacturing of the first large-scale, commercially-scale 3D print houses.

The company said it expects to start selling the first homes by the end of the year.

The $10-million round of financing comes on the heels of the announcement in January of a $20 million Series C funding round led by the Draper Family Fund.
