We are committed to driving it into as many areas as we can.”
  11. 11. Presidential Focus • National Network for Manufacturing Innovation • Seeking $1B in funding support from Congress • National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute • First pilot NNMI institute • NAMII’s singular focus is to accelerate and integrate additive manufacturing technologies to the US manufacturing sector and increase domestic manufacturing competitiveness by: • Fostering a highly collaborative infrastructure for the open exchange of additive manufacturing information and advanced research • Facilitating the development, evaluation, and deployment of efficient and flexible additive manufacturing technologies • Educating students and training workers in additive manufacturing technologies to create an adaptive, leading workforce
  12. 12. Additive Manufacturing Standards • ASTM International Committee F42 on Additive Manufacturing Technologies • In partnership with SME • Subcommittees • Test methods • Design • Material and Processes • Terminology • NIST and ISO also in the “loop”
