The National Center for Defense Manufacturing and Machining (NCDMM), parent organization of America Makes, has entered into a formal collaboration agreement with Digital Engineering, to advance the additive manufacturing/3D printing industry. 

DE and America Makes

 

America Makes and its membership community of more than 220 organizations share a common goal to accelerate additive manufacturing and 3D printing to increase the U.S. global manufacturing competitiveness. Digital Engineering will help leverage its magazine, e-newsletters, DigitalEngineering247.com website and marketing database to drive awareness of America Makes’ mission as national accelerator for additive manufacturing and 3D printing. 

Digital Engineering (formerly Desktop Engineering) has been covering additive manufacturing and 3D printing since 1995 in the pages of DE and via our digital channels,” says Tom Cooney, publisher of Digital Engineering. “Our product design engineering audience has used this technology for prototyping their designs since the mid ’90s. With recent advances in materials, hardware and software, our audience is on the frontline of moving additive manufacturing toward full production of their designs. That’s why we are so very excited to be working with this tremendous organization.” 

“Within the advanced manufacturing industry and for those design engineering teams who serve it, Digital Engineering has been a mainstay and editorial leader in conveying information on the latest innovations and technologies that are impacting and transforming engineering design,” says NCDMM’s Executive Director of America Makes Rob Gorham. “Our collaboration with Digital Engineering will prove to be a highly effective way to further commercialize additive technologies and communicate the innovative work of the America Makes membership community to a critical audience.”

This partnership with America Makes will help ensure that DE’s audience of almost 90,000 design engineers, engineering managers and executives are aware of the resources America Makes has to offer when evaluating and integrating additive manufacturing and 3D printing into the digital thread.
