America Makes – The National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute

During its second performance management review in Youngstown, Ohio, it was announced that the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute – aka NAMII – was being re-branded as America Makes. This was a defining moment for the additive institute as it describes the action-oriented focus and mission for the institute specifically and the subsequent national network as a whole.

Present at the meeting to show his support of the new America Makes identity and represent the expanding 3D desktop printing industry and community was Bre Pettis, CEO of MakerBot.

As the national accelerator for additive manufacturing and 3D printing, America Makes is the nation’s leading and collaborative partner in AM and 3DP technology research, discovery, creation, and innovation. Structured as a public-private partnership with member organizations from industry, academia, government, non-government agencies, and workforce and economic development resources, America Makes is working together to innovate and accelerate additive manufacturing and 3D printing to increase our nation’s global manufacturing competitiveness.
