3-D Printing on Display at NAMII [SLIDESHOW]

On the outside the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute looks like any other building in Youngstown, Ohio—an unremarkeable rectangle of grey brick; a relic of another age.

On the inside, however, it is home to some of the most state-of-the-art additive manufacturing equipment available today, proudly displaying the intricate, impossibly complex structures the machines are capable of producing.

Tucked into its drab shell, this 21st-century collaboration center is representative of Youngstown itself—mired in a history of struggle, scarred by decades of decline, but now restocked for a new century, standing by and ready to change the world.

This slideshow is a companion piece to the feature, "Will NAMII Work?"
