Welcome to the America Makes Innovation Pavilion

InnoCentive Solvers are invited to deliver results to challenges and sprints as identified on the Additive Manufacturing Technology Roadmap. America Makes developed the Additive Manufacturing Technology Roadmap to identify measurable and meaningful challenges that, when met, promote inquiry, knowledge-sharing, and technical advancements across the industry.

The Technology Roadmap is broken down into the following five technical focus areas:


America Makes is the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute. As the national accelerator for additive manufacturing (AM) and 3D printing (3DP), America Makes is the nation’s leading and collaborative partner in AM and 3DP technology research, discovery, creation, and innovation. Structured as a public-private partnership with member organizations from industry, academia, government, non-government agencies, and workforce and economic development resources, we are working together to innovate and accelerate AM and 3DP to increase our nation’s global manufacturing competitiveness. Established in 2012 and based in Youngstown, Ohio, America Makes is the flagship Institute for the National Network for Manufacturing Innovation (NNMI) infrastructure of up to 45 Institutes to follow and is driven by the National Center for Defense Manufacturing and Machining (NCDMM).
