[SINGAPORE] The Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) wants multinational companies to pick Singapore as the location for developing 3D printing and additive manufacturing applications for their businesses.

"We're not ready to announce anything yet, but we're quite confident of being able to announce some good progress in that space soon," said EDB's managing director Yeoh Keat Chuan, in an interview with BT.

Though excitement over personal 3D printers for hobbyists and the 3D printing of iPhone covers at home may be nearing the peak of the "hype curve", there have not been that many large-scale commercial applications worldwide, he says.
