Here’s another round-up of recent news from the 3D printing world, in case you missed anything. Stories this time include a new 3D bio-printing collaboration, Dassault Systemes launching a new entrepreneur scheme, and more besides.

The top prize in the first annual WeWork Creator Awards has gone to Samantha Snabes, the founder of 3D printer manufacturer re.3D. Her company is known for the Gigabot 3D printer, one of the larger machines on the market.
