Membership Benefits

America Makes is a public-private membership organization that provides vision, leadership, and tools to its members. Currently, America Makes manages a portfolio of more than $96 million in public and private funds for members to advance the state-of-the-art in additive manufacturing and 3DP in the United States.  

Our members inherently understand that we can achieve more as a collaborative community to advance additive manufacturing technology development, adoption, commercialization, and education. In joining a member community made of leaders from industry, academia, non-profits, and government agencies, together we can:

  • Collaborate on innovations;
  • Maximize applied research and development funding;
  • Target areas that hold the most promise or address the greatest need;
  • Leverage shared knowledge, resources, and costs;
  • Innovate technologies, processes, and materials;
  • Overcome challenges quickly;
  • Accelerate time to market; and
  • Become more globally competitive.
