Mass-produced sneakers and car parts are about to roll off assembly lines at Nike and BMW -- 3-D printer assembly lines. Hewlett Packard on Tuesday announced the world's first 3-D printer for large-scale manufacturing. Nine companies, including Nike, BMW and Johnson & Johnson, are using the HP Jet Fusion 3D Printing Solution, says Stephen Nigro, who runs HP's 3-D printing business. He announced the news at the RAPID tech conference in Orlando today. "We want to change the way the world prints parts," says Nigro, who previously ran HP's 20 billion print division.
