The initiative, led by the Michigan-based National Center for Manufacturing Sciences, aims to provide a bring together experts in additive manufacturing from private companies, government academia to further advances in plastics, metals and machinery that can produce items faster and lower costs, according to NCMS.
Key among collaborators is the Army Research Lab, which has its largest presence at Aberdeen Proving Ground and is making 3D printing advances. It’s among a number of technologies being developed at APG. Located outside the base at Harford County’s former Higher Education and Applied Technology (HEAT) center, the program is designed to bring those advances to commercial industrial use. Among those involved in the center are Chuck Hull, the inventor of 3D printing and CTO 3D Systems, as well as Harford County and the State of Maryland.
