"Although additive-based rapid prototyping technologies are ever more established, from producing concept models to detailed #engineering prototypes, engineers must not lose sight of how to go from prototyping and the final design stage to #manufacturing production in the most efficient and effective way."

This trend was very evident at the Honolulu Mini Maker Faire... It is great to see students get so excited about ‪technology‬ and all of the possibilities that come along with it!

"Ideas cannot be protected, but inventions are patentable." Having a #prototype‬  of your invention will speed up the entire ‪patent process.

A good blog post from the #Manufacturing Extension Partnership... "From testing for usability and functionality, to figuring out how products will be assembled, additive manufacturing is a versatile, exciting ‪#‎technology‬ that can help a smaller manufacturer creatively improve their products and their processes, while building their bottom line."

Some people confuse patents, copyrights, and trademarks. Although there may be some similarities among these kinds of intellectual property protection, they are different and serve different purposes.

A good read... "3D printing, or additive manufacturing, is likely to revolutionize business in the next several years. Often dismissed in the popular mindset as a tool for home-based 'makers' of toys and trinkets, the ‪#‎technology‬ is gaining momentum in large-scale industry." +Harvard Business Review

A report, published on behalf of the Commission on the Theft of American Intellectual Property by the National Bureau of Asian Research, found that stolen ideas, brands and inventions drain more than $300 billion from the U.S. economy. (Wow!)

Stronger standards to protect intellectual property are needed to enable America’s continued global competitiveness. Trade agreements, such as the TPP, provide just such an opportunity.

In recent weeks there has been chatter about the new 3MF file format and what it means for the #3dprinting  industry. We asked Collin Kobayashi, President & Chief 3D Officer of 3D Innovations, to weigh in on what he sees as the benefits and drawbacks of 3MF…

Get your #prototype  out there early. It’s much easier (and cheaper) to correct problems early in the developmental stage rather than later on during production.

To fight startup failure, practice product testing early and often.

Did you know… Americans use more than 29 billion plastic water bottles each year and only 1 in 6 is recycled?

Our featured “Product of the Week”, Welly Bottle, is a sustainable, filtered and sleek reusable bottle. The thoughtful design of WELLY is what captured our attention. From the shape of the bottle to the design of the cap, each piece was carefully crafted to be convenient and functional.

Learn more about WELLY on our blog...
