Inside the Nation's Largest 3D Printing Network

While the COVID-19 pandemic caused innumerable, life-threatening challenges, it also gave the manufacturing industry a unique opportunity to showcase its collaborative potential. Host Tony Uphoff speaks to 4 key stakeholders from 3 companies involved in Project DIAMOnD, which stands for "Distributed, Independent, Agile Manufacturing on Demand," a unique program created last year at the height of the pandemic. Backed by Microsoft, the Michigan-based initiative was developed by Automation Alley, a World Economic Forum Advanced Manufacturing Hub (AMHUB), with the goal of creating the nation’s largest 3D printing marketplace and network to increase agile, urgent resource production.
