A survey conducted by Evertiq, a Swedish-based newsite for the electronics industry, shows that 65 percent of companies in the electronics industry say they have reached "total compliance and are already shipping RoHS compliant products." Close to 15 percent of respondents said they are exempt from RoHS laws, while 15 percent noted they are still not RoHS-compliant. Another 7 percent indicated they have reached compliance in their processes, but have not yet started shipping compliant products.

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
