NAMIC Holds Additive Manufacturing Summit, Continues to Build Singapore’s 3D Printing Economy

NAMIC Holds Additive Manufacturing Summit, Continues to Build Singapore’s 3D Printing Economy

Singapore has a booming maritime industry, one that has only been enhanced of late by 3D printing. The country has been aggressively pursuing the technology in its marine sector, and behind much of Singapore’s 3D printing activity has been the National Additive Manufacturing Innovation Cluster, or NAMIC. Yesterday, NAMIC held the Maritime and Energy Sector […]

Boat and Ship Industry Ideal for 3D Printer R&D Tax Credits

Boat and Ship Industry Ideal for 3D Printer R&D Tax Credits

The boat and ship industry is characterized by numerous boatyards, shipyards, and marinas that for natural reasons are often located in remote coastal areas. Although many boat and ship components are standard items, the added transportation costs and marine specifications often make parts and components difficult to source and very expensive. Moreover, the marine industry […]
