Here is a summary of what Tradeshows, Conferences & Exhibitions to look forward to in the coming months.
The dream of a 3D printer in every home has gone, however that doesn't mean consumers won't be impacted by 3D printing.
Bridget Butler Millsaps for 3DPrint.com: What’s so incredible about the soft robotic hand created by a team at Cornell? It can grip, sort, and sense what it is touching. But what’s truly astounding is the potential it offers in terms of price and prosthetics for the future. Bringing forth further innovation and progress to the world of robotics, at $50 one can see how it might have realistic, significant impact on numerous levels. Dispelling the idea of robots as lovable but clunky machines with a steel and rigid grip, Cornell researchers have managed to create what looks like—and offers the feel of—a human hand. This means that the task list for robots may expand exponentially as they are able to handle more delicate items, to include items like food and other fragile products. This also means that they would be able to work with people without injuring them, such as in a medical setting. Cont'd...
Tough PLA is an engineer's material. You can make truly high-strength, high-wear prototypes or even durable end-use parts like jigs and fixtures.
Single software solution developed to accelerate additive manufacturing workflows for 3D Systems' plastic 3D printers
Jen Kinney for Next City: Alcobendas, Spain, this week unveiled a 3D-printed pedestrian bridge, reports 3ders.org, a 3D printing news site. The approximately 40-foot concrete bridge is made up of eight separate parts that fit together, and was created using an additive manufacturing process. It spans a small canal in Castilla La Mancha Park. According to a statement from the Alcobendas City Council, the 3D printing process resulted in far less waste than normally produced while creating concrete structures, making it less expensive than traditional processes. Large-scale 3D printing holds the promise of versatility — since structural elements can be created without molds or forms — and of sustainability, since raw material can often be recycled and fewer resources are required during manufacture.

Santa Barbara Additive Manufacturing Company ALT LLC Announces Upcoming Indiegogo Campaign: Recycled 3D Printing Filament from Everyday Plastic Waste
Additive manufacturing (AM) company ALT LLC (https://3DALT.com) announced today that they will launch an Indiegogo Campaign in late December of this year. The campaign will raise funds to produce high performance Recycled 3D Printing Filament made from everyday plastic waste.
DSI's Military Additive Manufacturing Summit is designed to support the DoD's efforts to leverage 3D Printing technology to deliver greater operational flexibility to Warfighters in the deployed environment. Speakers joining this forum will outline their efforts to use additive manufacturing to improve overall mission readiness and drastically reduce the manufacturing, storage, maintenance and sustainment costs of resources as they pass through the Military logistics supply chain.
We find ourselves at a significant intersecting point in manufacturing history with growth and innovation driving manufacturing technology. 3D printing is about to change the world and manufacturers are capturing the moment.
Moving a product concept to the prototype stage remains an exciting step.

US Digital is pleased to announce the launch of the E4T, their latest series of miniature high performance optical encoders. The E4T series delivers a marked performance increase over similar encoder models and designed to be an enhanced replacement for the E4P encoder series. The E4T utilizes state of the art transmissive optical sensing technology, and incorporates US Digital's own proprietary OptoASIC. Assembly of the E4T is simple and efficient and retains the previous E4P's form factor. Key features of the new E4T include: • Mechanically and Electrically Interchangeable with E4P • Improved Quadrature Signal Strength • 100 kHz Frequency Response • Transmissive Optical Design • Collet Style Push on Optical Disk Design (Patent Pending) • Simple & Efficient Assembly Process As with all of our products the E4T is designed and manufactured in their Vancouver, Washington USA facility and is available for purchase as of December 2014.
