Since 1991, the Collegiate Inventors Competition has been recognizing and rewarding students and their advisors for research and innovations that could lead to patentable inventions. This year, full-time undergraduate and graduate students will compete in separate categories with separate cash prizes. The grand prize of $50,000 (plus $10k to the advisor), along with other cash prizes, will be awarded to the winning student or student team this fall in New York City. Deadline for the competition is June 1. Visit www.invent.org for more information.
The 3D printing revolution seems to have a knack for quickly moving technology ahead by way of collaborative effort and even a little friendly competition -- all of course in the name of scientific advancement.
Advantech has launched a new series of motion-control I/O modules to meet the increased demands that come with more distributed industrial systems that require control of a growing number of axes and devices.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
