On August 12, 2013 the 3D printer manufacturer Voxeljet privately filed for a $100 million IPO. They will be listed in the NYSE as VJET. Piper Jaffray and Citi are joint book runners for the deal and no pricing terms were disclosed. Voxeljet is based in Friedberg, Germany and currently has eighty seven employees. They were founded in 1999 and have booked eleven million dollars in sales over the last twelve months.

They are perhaps best known for their large-format 3D printers like the VX4000. According to their website, "The VX4000 system concept features a very large building volume of 4 x 2 x 1 meters, which is more than six times the volume of the next largest commercially available 3D printer. To improve performance, a particularly wide print head is used, which prints a layer in only two passes."

You can take a look at a video of the VX4000 here:

Voxeljet also provides on-demand printing services for a variety of aerospace, automotive and engineering applications. They also occasionally produce models for filmmakers, including three replica Aston Martin models which were used in the James Bond film Skyfall.
