Drone Maker 3D Robotics Raises $50 Million In Latest Round – Forbes.

A financial document filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Wednesday, showed that the company was only looking to raise $40 million in the round. According to the document, it had sold just over $32 million worth of shares. It’s unclear how 3D Robotics exceeded the $40 million it originally expected to raise.

In raising $50 million, 3D Robotics has obtained a total of more than $85 million in funding to date.

Now 3D Robotics has offices in three cities in addition to a factory in Tijuana. The company is expected to reach sales of $50 million this year according to the BBC.
