“On behalf of all of us at America Makes, I am honoured to present the inaugural America Makes Distinguished Collaborator Award to our long-time friend and esteemed colleague, Dr Howard Kuhn, in recognition of his many and significant contributions not only to America Makes, but also to the field of Additive Manufacturing and 3D printing,” stated America Makes Founding Director and NCDMM President and Executive Director Ralph Resnick. “Few people have Howard’s vision and ability to bring and inspire mutual efforts together to advance the technology. We are honoured to recognise his devotion and successful initiatives with the inaugural America Makes Distinguished Collaborator Award.”
