    Here's my short list:

    3D Printing

    Page Wide Array

    New Substrates

    Conductive Ink for Inkjet (think printing flexible circuit boards)

    Small High speed flatbeds

    What are you guys and gals looking forward to?

    I'd love to see a latex or flexible UV page wide array printer in a hybrid format.

    Imagine pumping out 1000 boards/hr at 1200+ DPI then switching to roll stock and running full rolls in 10mins.

    In the realm of flatbeds I'd like to see one that runs as consistently and reliably as my Roland SP540V.

    Nothing but a constant barrage of folks posting with this issue or that regarding their flatbed regardless of manufacturer. Banding, drop outs, head crashes, etc...REALLY!!!!!

    And as if they didn't charge you enough buying the rig replacement parts are hyper expensive. LED lamps on Rolands roll to roll UV printer are five grand a pop and there's two of them.:omg::omg::omg:

    It is 2015 fer cryin' out loud! Forget the new product and focus on making whats out there as simple and reliable as an anvil.

    That is why I have shied away from ever looking at them and let my to the trade guy have the headaches.

    Disappointing for this day in age...
