The Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Research, Development and Acquisition (ASN RD&A) invites you to attend the FY17 Department of the Navy (DON) Pentagon 3D Print-a-Thon Tuesday, March 14.

Twenty naval organizations — including scientists and engineers from across the Naval Research and Development Establishment (NR&DE), maintenance operations, and Marines and Sailors from multiple commands — are presenting items that have been produced through the use of Additive Manufacturing (AM) technology. Participating organizations have designed and additively manufactured items that demonstrate one or both of the following concepts:

-- Enhanced Warfighting Capability: Demonstrates an innovative use of AM technology to provide enhanced warfighting capabilities (i.e. increased lethality, light-weight components, items customized to mission or warfighter).

-- Readiness/Sustainment: Demonstrates AM to support or resolve an existing readiness, sustainment, logistical, or supply problem.
