*** Find out what's really going on in the world of RP!
These are the briefest highlights. Enormous efforts are being exerted in the
areas of technology, rapid manufacturing and tooling, materials and medicine.
For most readers, we believe the new abbreviated format of the Highlights!
section will be more enjoyable and newsy, as well as faster to read. But if
you're serious about RP, whether in industry or academia, you can still access
the complete in-depth research for a tiny fraction of the cost or the time of
doing it yourself.
