YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — An open house at the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Institute in downtown Youngstown on Thursday coincided with the second annual National Manufacturing Day.

Officials with NAMII have wanted to get their doors open to the public since opening last August. NAMII representatives said they want the community to embrace their vision for the future.

“We’re trying to explain and help people understand that we are here to support local industry and we’re here to try and help create economic opportunity for the region, and the country, as it relates to 3-D printing, or additive manufacturing, as it’s known,” said Rob Gorham, deputy director for technology development.

NAMII now has more than 80 members from businesses all over the world.
