In tonight’s State of the Union Address, President Barack Obama called 3D Printing a technology that has “the potential to revolutionize the way we make almost everything”, adding that he has asked Congress to create a network of fifteen manufacturing hubs where business in the United States can receive support in using these technologies, in conjunction with the Departments of Defence and Energy.

He also mentioned NAMII (National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute) which was launched as a pilot for this program in Youngstown Ohio last year.
