3D Graphtech Industries, recently established in Australia by Kibaran Resources and the 3D Group, signed an initial agreement with Australia's CSIRO organization to investigate research opportunities in 3D printing using graphite and graphene inks.

CSIRO and 3DGI will jointly perform a white-paper study to identify technological problems in the 3D printing market that can be solved in an R&D program to provide a commercial solution. This is expected to take six weeks, and this initial agreement may lead to a longer-term relationship.
