America Makes is bringing the 3D printing community together in Youngstown

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The best minds behind additive manufacturing are in Youngstown this week.

The America Makes annual meeting is bringing together the 3D printing community to talk about technology.

There are 300 people attending the two-day Premier Additive Manufacturing Event.

One of the main talking points this year is trying to relate what opportunities there are for others to participate in this movement.

They’re sharing ideas, reviewing technical contents and talking about research projects.

“There’s a whole host of organizations within this area that are taking advantage of what’s going on in the technology and really helping drive the opportunity moving forward. Youngstown is really the center point of what’s going on in additive,” said America Makes Director John Wilczynski.

America Makes also handed out its Ambassador Awards on Tuesday, recognizing people who demonstrate dedication to America Makes and its mission.
