    Spend a few minutes talking with Clèment Moreau, and you’re apt to start dreaming up your own three-dimensional (3D) creations: a customized toy, a work of art, or even a working robot. But as co-founder of 3D printing company Sculpteo, Moreau is less interested in hobbyist-only pursuits than he is in what professionals can do with the still-nascent technology.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. factory orders rose at the fastest rate in four months during November as strong demand for new commercial aircraft pushed business up by 1.2 percent to a seasonally adjusted $377.42 billion, the Commerce Department said on Tuesday. The November increase followed an upwardly revised 0.9 percent orders gain in October that previously was reported as a 0.5 percent rise and outstripped Wall Street economists' forecasts for a smaller 0.8 percent pickup.
