Voxel8 can 3-D print with multiple materials to produce the upper portion of athletic shoes.

The venture arm of DSM has invested an undisclosed sum in Voxel8, a 3-D printing start-up developing technologies for multimaterial products. Founded by Harvard University engineering professor Jennifer Lewis, Voxel8 has targeted athletic footwear testing and production as an early market.
