To date, 48.2 percent of the 1,549 Chinese branded industrial 3D printers sold were made by Beijing Tiertime or Beijing Yinhua, according to the latest data from Wohlers Associates.

The Huazhong University of Science and Technology has formed several sector-wise 3D printing R&D teams.

Shi Yusheng, a professor with the university, and his team have sold more than 300 units of their developed 3D facilities and materials to the United Kingdom, Singapore, Brazil and Russia.
