Cabe, that sounds like an interesting combination. Maybe you should try writing to Georgia Tech and making that suggestion?

mrdon, HMI is an interesting application idea. BTW, I think a.saji meant that new technologies that can be applied to robotics are happening very quickly right now.

Greg, that's interesting that several people, including you, mentioned medical applications. I was thinking more along the line of industrial uses but medical makes a lot of sense.

I wonder if this could be coupled with Georgia Institute of Technology's sensor device that converts mechanical pressure into light for ultra-sensitivity akin to human skin. https://www.gatech.edu/newsroom/release.html?nid=228141

vimalkumarp, good point about companion robots as an application for this tech.

How 3D printing fits into the digital thread, and the relationship between its uses for prototyping and for manufacturing, was the subject of a talk by Proto Labs' Rich Baker at last week's Design & Manufacturing Minneapolis.
Some carbon composite processes are moving into volume auto manufacturing, while intensive R&D is being conducted on many fronts to fast-track material and process development.
How can automakers, aerospace contractors, and other OEMs get new metal alloys that are stronger, harder, and can survive ever higher temperatures? One way is to redesign their crystalline structures at the nanoscale and microscale.
According to freelance website Upwork, demand has risen sharply since last year for engineers with experience of all kinds in 3D printing and AM.
Although a lot of the excitement about 3D printing and additive manufacturing surrounds its ability to make end-products and functional prototypes, some often ignored applications are the big improvements that can come by using it for tooling, jigs, and fixtures.
