Materials, IP and collaboration: International Conference for Additive Manufacturing and 3D Printing
The 9th International Conference for Additive Manufacturing and 3D Printing was a hotbed of future technology, business models, medical developments, industrial design and intellectual property.
Priding itself on bringing together industry experts, the event was packed with more than 300 people in attendance hailing from more than 20 countries, all getting involved with three key topics: IP, collaboration and, of course, materials.
Underpinning each of these themes was the importance of innovation, which was universally agreed to be the key factor in the economic success and viability of the Additive Manufacturing (AM) and 3D printing industry and the products it helps to create.

Its aim was to crack the electric race car category, one gaining much more attention as automotive engineers look to the future of motorsports like FormulaE.
Safe to say we were happy to hear that the team had achieved its goal, being the top ranking UK electric team at Formula Student 2014.
3Dindustri.es (3DI) has launched 3Dshap.es, a search engine that navigates 3D content on the Web by shape and sourcing of 3D printable files.
Powered by proprietary 3D search algorithms that organise and search by shape and form, it offers an alternative to navigating 3D content compared to conventional search engines. In this way, it also overcomes differences in language, labeling and naming conventions.
With the imminent arrival of 3D scanning devices embedded in hardware such as the Google Tango phone, Google Glasses and Amazon’s Fire phone, 3D data is set to explode online, while 3D search queries will also increase.
