Prototolabs Joins MIT's Additive Manufacturing ConsortiumDecember 12, 2018
Protolabs, Inc., a Maple Plain, MN-based provider of 3D-printing services, announced that it has become a founding member of MIT’s newly formed Center for Additive and Digital Advanced Production Technologies (ADAPT) — a consortium focused on scaling new manufacturing technology through research, education, actionable insights, and an MIT-based ecosystem that pairs industry and academia.
Other founding members: Autodesk, General Motors, and Volkswagen, to name a few. Initial efforts of ADAPT include exploratory research projects with faculty and graduate students, and accelerating the establishment of a new, advanced additive manufacturing laboratory at MIT. ADAPT activities also complement MIT’s additive manufacturing (AM) education programs.
