On Wednesday, Charter Communications completed its massive purchase of Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks, which means that America s newest three-headed cable monster has finally hatched out of its $65.5 billion egg.

It will also see the cannibalization of one of America s most hated companies: a Charter spokesman told Bloomberg that the Time Warner Cable name will soon disappear altogether, folded into Charter s Spectrum brand.

But as Gizmodo has pointed out more than once, the deal has some potentially bad consequences for customers.

Though it was subject to a number of regulatory conditions, including a limit on data caps and an agreement not to charge streaming companies like Netflix special fees, these conditions are only in place for seven years.

Charter claims that it will maintain a superior product set at highly competitive prices, but such a massive conglomeration can and should leave consumers feeling a little uneasy.

Larger, more powerful companies, which Charter has just become, means less space for the small companies—and that, of course, means consumers will no doubt get screwed over in the end.

The company claims that its Jet Fusion 3D Printing Solution revolutionises prototyping and printing by delivering "superior quality" end products at half the cost, and up to 10 times faster, than current rivals FDM and SLS printer solutions in the same price bracket .

It offers printing at the individual voxel level the 3D printing equivalent of a single pixel in 2D printing, as it were so boasts high levels of accuracy, and also speed with the ability to print over 340 million voxels per second.

And while this is aimed at commercial usage and the hardware is very expensive, it's exciting to see what sort of technology is in the wings and could potentially trickle down in some form to desktop 3D printing.

Businesses and manufacturers can completely rethink how they design and deliver solutions to their customers."

Pricing for the 3200 starts at $130,000 around £90,000, AU$180,000 , with the full solution comprising the 3D printer and Processing Station which you can see on the right in the above image - this provides faster cooling and a cleaner finish, among other benefits starting at $155,000 around £108,000, AU$213,000 .

The Jet Fusion 4200 will ship late this year, and the Jet Fusion 3200 will follow in 2017.
