The technical vision of the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute (NAMII) is to accelerate additive manufacturing innovation by bridging that critical gap between basic research and mature development work.
In working toward this goal, NAMII’s technical vision is to competitively seek projects that fill gaps and needs within the National Additive Roadmap, an assessment methodology. The National Additive Roadmap has been instrumental in identifying areas for growth throughout industry sectors and refining the project areas to be selected.
Projects undertaken by NAMII will be based on their applied research, high sustainability, digital data (modeling, simulation, and data-driven), and viability of educational outreach and workforce training.
