In yesterday's State of the Union Address, President Barack Obama called 3D Printing a technology that has "the potential to revolutionize the way we make almost everything".

Our first priority is making America a magnet for new jobs and manufacturing.


After shedding jobs for more than 10 years, our manufacturers have added about 500,000 jobs over the past three. Caterpillar is bringing jobs back from Japan. Ford is bringing jobs back from Mexico. After locating plants in other countries like China, Intel is opening its most advanced plant right here at home. And this year, Apple will start making Macs in America again.


There are things we can do, right now, to accelerate this trend. Last year, we created our first manufacturing innovation institute in Youngstown, Ohio. A once-shuttered warehouse is now a state-of-the art lab where new workers are mastering the 3D printing that has the potential to revolutionize the way we make almost everything. There's no reason this can't happen in other towns. So tonight, I'm announcing the launch of three more of these manufacturing hubs, where businesses will partner with the Departments of Defense and Energy to turn regions left behind by globalization into global centers of high-tech jobs. And I ask this Congress to help create a network of fifteen of these hubs and guarantee that the next revolution in manufacturing is Made in America.

White House officials announced in August 2012 a $30 million investment to create a National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute (NAMII) in Youngstown, Ohio. The partnership was selected through a competitive process, led by the Department of Defense, and the private industry consortium will add another $40 million to the pilot program.

The Institute is housed in a 10,000-square foot section of the Youngstown Business Incubator. How is the progress in the last five months at NAMII? Check the details here. Officials with the Youngstown Business Incubator stressed that NAMII won't actually make anything in Youngstown. Instead, it will serve as a research lab, with workers looking for ways to make additive manufacturing more user friendly, less expensive and more efficient, allowing more companies to consider using it to make the products they need.
