Singapore Investing $30M in 3D Printing
Singapore’s Prime Minister and the country’s Economic Development Board (EDB) announced that Singapore will set aside $30M of its $500M “Future of Manufacturing” fund to create a new 3D Printing center.
Housed at the country’s Nanyang Technological University the new $30M center will be a hub of innovation for students and industry alike. According to initial reports, the 300 sq. meter (984sq. ft) facility will be home to direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) machines as well as bio-printers.
While off the shelf machines will be available for prototyping immediately, NTU researchers will have the opportunity to use the center to develop new materials and processes in collaboration with local industry.
