Three-dimensional printing debuts in Greater Lansing
Greater Lansing businesses and entrepreneurs can now avail the far reaching benefits of a new 3D printing. As announced by the Lansing Economic Area Partnership on Thursday, the Michigan Economic Development Corporation Incubator Grant Program and the Lansing Economic Development Corporation collaborated to purchase a 3D printing machine.
The idea behind the procurement of the machine is to help area companies and citizens bring their ideas for new products to fruition. The machine is installed at the Lansing Community College's West Campus.
"3-D printing is being hailed by many as the future of manufacturing and entrepreneurial technology. This program will put Greater Lansing at the forefront of creating an aggressive entrepreneurial environment," said Bob Trezise, President and CEO of Lansing Economic Area Partnership (LEAP). "This machine will provide an outlet for companies, their employees, and citizens alike, to literally take the ideas they have in their head and create working prototypes," he added.
