USPTO to host additive manufacturing partnership meeting

9 March 2014

The US Department of Commerce’s United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) will host an Additive Manufacturing Partnership Meeting on Wednesday, April 9, 2014 at the USPTO headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia. Additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital model.

The technology is growing in use, including in such fields as jewelry, footwear, architecture, engineering and construction, automotive, aerospace, dental and medical industries.

The meeting will serve as a forum for sharing ideas, experiences, and insights between stakeholders and the USPTO. Industry representatives will also provide an overview of the application of additive manufacturing in different technologies.

Individual opinions are sought from varying participants, and the meetings are intended to be informal in nature. These partnership groups are formed with full recognition of the USPTO’s responsibility under the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA), and are not established as FACA-compliant committees.

The only thing I want to see from the USPTO is for them to hire someone with even HALF a brain who will stop granting patents for simple and obvious ideas that CLEARLY do not deserve a patent:
Example: rounded corners on a smart phone-> see every tablet made since ancient Babylonia...and I'm not joking about that.
Exampe: Swipe to unlock-> already used on other devices in the market yet granted to Apple.

If you're too F'ing stupid to do something this simple, you do not deserve a paycheck from my tax money.

Good ideas DD.

Autonomous drive, 3D printing machines (additive manufacturing), 5-5-5 batteries, affordable extended range BEVs and FCEVs will become common place by 2020 or so.

With low cost 3D printers, home made products (including hand guns, fitted shoes etc) will become Kings again?
