Last week, Long Beach, California was home to the latest in 3D printing and scanning technology. RAPID celebrated its 25th anniversary with a smorgasbord of innovative technology from both established companies and young startups from around the world. Due to the overwhelming amount of exhibitors, I have narrowed down the top five most exciting things from the event.

3D printer makers and service providers showed off an array of cutting-edge designs all made through additive manufacturing. Everything from production metal engines and drones to motorcycles, bicycles and special effects parts for movies were on display at the conference, which took place in Long Beach, Calif., last week.

Why would the biggest connector company in the world design and build what it says is the first fully functional 3D-printed motorcycle? That's what I asked TE Connectivity's Charles Fry at last week's RAPID 2015 show. Fry, principal electrical engineer for the company's advanced manufacturing technology group, said an internal team decided to build the bike as a demonstrator. The intent was to show TE Connectivity's engineers what the technology can really do in making working load-bearing production parts, and free up their thinking when approaching design problems.

"It was kind of a so-so day. I made a bit of a mistake at the restart where I ran into (Juan Pablo) Montoya; it didn’t hurt him as much as it did us, I guess (haha). It was a long day… The car felt pretty good, we just couldn’t get by people - that was the trickiest part - we really struggled on passing people. It felt great to be back at Indianapolis Motor Speedway - the fans were awesome. I wish we had a better result, I’m pretty disappointed but on to the next one. Huge thank you to everyone at TE Connectivity for giving me the opportunity, and the Andretti Autosport guys did an amazing job the whole month, so I’m looking forward to hopefully working with everyone here at Andretti again.

Already the first woman to finish on the podium at an IndyCar street race, De Silvestro was considered the woman most likely to join the men on the starting grid in the near future. But like most drivers, De Silvestro's ambitions are fueled by cash and when her sponsorship ran out, so did her brief time in Formula One. "For sure it would have been good to get a chance to drive Monaco, the dream is still there but if it's going to happen I don't know," De Silvestro said.

De Silvestro will be part of a five-car Andretti entry that includes last year's winner Ryan Hunter-Reay and she will have her best chance of reaching Victory Lane, qualifying a career best 18th. While no woman has appeared on the Formula One grid since Italian Lella Lombardi 39 years ago, De Silvestro is seeking to become the first woman to get her likeness on the massive Borg Warner winner's trophy.

No one, it seems, will be surprised if Simona de Silvestro is in contention over the final laps of the 99th Indianapolis 500 on Sunday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The Swiss driver will make her fifth start at the Brickyard, but it is the first time she'll pilot a car equal to her talent. In four starts with the HVM and KV racing teams, she finished on the lead lap in cars with underpowered engines.
