Quickly Deploying Our Nation’s Additive Manufacturing Resources to Address the National Health Crisis

America Makes has partnered with its member, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Department of Veterans’ Affairs, and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to help ensure the additive manufacturing industry can effectively and safely meet the needs of America’s health care workers on the front lines of the Coronavirus crisis.

This effort will connect the capabilities of the additive manufacturing industry with specific needs of health care providers via this online repository. This site will record necessary information from both the additive manufacturing industry and health care providers and eventually include a pathway for designs to be uploaded for review to ensure they meet medical standards and can be downloaded for use in production.
