United States Utility Patent Granted! 🏆
We're incredibly proud to share that one of our patent applications has been accepted and granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO)!
This is an incredible milestone - according to a U.S. patent statistics chart, only about half of all patent applications received by the USPTO are granted. Not only that, but the process of writing, filing, and most importantly - waiting - for the USPTO to review an application and respond to the applicant is a complex, multi-year process. In fact, the patent application we just got granted was started in the summer of 2014! 😲
As you may already know, R3 Printing has several other patents pending for our additive manufacturing innovations, and we look forward to sharing more exciting updates like these in the future!
Until next time,
Petra Wood | Head of Growth
