USPTO to Host Additive Manufacturing Partnership Meeting

Washington, D.C. – The U.S. Commerce Department’s United States Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”) will host an Additive Manufacturing Partnership Meeting on Wednesday, July 8, 2015 on the Alexandria campus. Additive manufacturing, sometimes called “3D printing,” refers to a group of new technologies that create objects from 3D computer models, usually by joining thin materials, layer upon layer. The meeting will serve as a forum for sharing ideas, experiences, and insights between individual users and representatives from the USPTO.
