The Emhart "Create the Future" Contest—sponsored by Emhart Teknologies, ABP International, and NASA Tech Briefs—gives designers a chance to make their ideas a reality, and win some big prizes in the process. Contestants may enter one of four design categories: Everyday Products, Medical, Safety, or Transportation. Judging will be based on innovation, manufacturability, marketability, and cost-effectiveness. The prize list is expansive, but the grand prize is a choice of either a 2005 Toyota Prius or $20,000 cash. Entries must received by November 19, 2004. For more info, go to www.emhartcontest.com.

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
