The Front Door to Additive

In 2021, America Makes underwent a renovation of its Youngstown, Ohio facility to create a “Front Door to Additive” – a space to connect visitors to the innovative possibilities of additive manufacturing (AM). It is both a place for the community to learn about America Makes and additive manufacturing, and for the industry to gather to share information, participate in workshops, or attend events. The renovation marks the next chapter in the history of 236 W Boardman Street.
