Description:

Request a Grant Writer

In-kind support to USA, Canada, and International IHEs (for students ages 18 and above) to subsidize the purchase of metal additive machines. Applicants must first submit an introductory application by February 28, 2018. Priority will be given to institutions that currently have research or curriculum in the area of additive manufacturing.

Enabling educational institutions to provide access to 3D printers will help develop the ecosystem and accelerate the adoption of additive manufacturing worldwide.

Additive manufacturing, which is also known as 3D printing, involves taking digital designs from computer aided design (CAD) software, and laying horizontal cross-sections to manufacture the part. Essentially “grown” from the ground up, additive components generate far less scrap material and are typically lighter and more durable than traditional forged parts because they require less welding and machining. Freed of traditional manufacturing restrictions, additive manufacturing dramatically expands the design possibilities for engineers.
