  3. 3. AmericaMakes.us Driven by… Approved for Public Release Why NNMI, Why America Makes? The foundation is laid – in March 2012, the formation of a National Network for Manufacturing Innovation (NNMI) was proposed and America Makes (National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute) was launched in August as the initial Institute of Manufacturing Innovation (IMI). The vision is simple – leverage our nation’s brilliant technical minds in all corners of government, industry and academia to accelerate the adoption of additive manufacturing technologies in the U.S. manufacturing sector and increase domestic manufacturing competitiveness. The goal is bold – create truly collaborative environments to bring technology advancements from the lab to the factory floor, create jobs, produce more competitive products, and ultimately reaffirm our place in the global market.
