The hit Netflix series "Stranger Things" is steeped in 1980s nostalgia, from the retro-synth soundtrack and garish yellow wall telephones to kids on bikes. But it took a decidedly contemporary technology—3D printing—to bring to life the Demogorgon monster. http://ow.ly/euRH30gjoZY

The international recycling company Tönsmeier became a partner of Germany’s World Wide Fund (WWF Deutschland) for Nature in September 2015, and since then has been working to rid the Baltic Sea of so-called ghost nets, abandoned fishing nets made of plastic. http://ow.ly/lPPk30el14z

“Injection molding is one of the most complex part formation processes on the planet,” John Beaumont of Beaumont Technologies once told PlasticsToday. And yet, the science applied to plastic materials grew separately from the plastics processing industry, “which has resulted in the injection molding process and tooling practices evolving as an art form,” added Beaumont. The advent of data-driven scientific molding changed that paradigm, replacing a trial-and-error, knob-twiddling approach with a data-driven technique that delivers repeatability and consistency. The injection molding community hasn’t looked back since, but here’s something it can look forward to: A free webinar devoted to the key principles of scientific molding methodology, presented by Garrett MacKenzie and produced by PlasticsToday. http://ow.ly/6iU230ejvHs
