In 2015, Mexico will host its first tradeshow dedicated exclusively to industrial printing in the realm of manufacturing. As the potential of 3D printing becomes increasingly obvious, its footprint is expanding across the globe. In some places, 3D printing is just becoming a part of the way that manufacturing is done. In others, such as Mexico, additive manufacturing is already being practiced on a large scale and is the driving force behind a great deal of economic development, such as the expansion of BMW in San Luis Potosi. As such, Tarsus Group and E.J. Krause & Associates saw the country as the perfect location for this latest addition to its portfolio of manufacturing events, the Industrial Print Expo. The 2015 event will take place in Monterrey and run alongside the Expo Manufactura, currently the most prominent business forum for the Mexican manufacturing industry. Expo Manufactura currently showcases manufacturing technologies in areas of CAD/CAM, robotic metrology, quality control, logistics, and micromechanization among others. In a press release given by Tarsus and E.J. Krause, the collaborating entities described the nature of the event:
“Industrial Print Expo will be a platform for displaying cutting edge technologies and solutions, sharing knowledge, and generating investment within the industrial print sector. The even will bring together specialists and key decision makers from both the public and private sectors. Attendees, whether representing industrial, commercial, public, government or military, will be able to see and compare the latest print technology solutions and applications, learn and understand the benefits and opportunities offered, discuss specific requirements, and meet industry professionals from across a wide array of sectors and technologies.”
Given the McKinsey Report’s prediction that anywhere from $230 to $550 billion dollars of growth could be generated by 3D printing by 2025, the time to invest in the culture of additive manufacturing and the establishment of networks for communication and advancement is now. Plans are for the show floor to bring together the most up to date equipment, techniques, and processes in ink jet technologies and 3D printing. In addition, the expo will showcase additional technology from hot stamping, to laser and thermal transfer. The event will be co-located with Expo Manufactura and run from February 3 – 5 in Monterrey at CinterMex.

TOPO! harnesses the power of authentic USGS topographic maps in an intuitive software product that recreation enthusiasts and professionals use to customize and print photo-quality topographic maps. TOPO! includes five levels of seamless mapping, including USA maps from the National Geographic World Atlas, USGS 1:100,000 scale mapping – perfect for back road navigation – and USGS 1:24,000 scale maps, also known as 7.5 minute quads. Users can custom-center the map in any location, add their routes, trails and notes. In addition, users can transfer waypoints and routes between TOPO! and their GPS units. TOPO! includes added content and features not on USGS maps: updated streets and roads, shaded relief, 3D views and fly-throughs and elevation profiles. Users can download map and software updates, and can print waterproof maps on their inkjet printers with Adventure Paper. The USA Placefinder locates more than a million places and natural features.
