Development Plans

The growing network of DFLC NSF ATE Center Partners will support the Next Generation Manufacturing component of the pilot learning community. These NSF ATE Centers develop and provide leading-edge resources and curriculum that cover the entire Advanced or Next Generation Manufacturing spectrum and technician skills profile. These NSF ATE Centers, located throughout the USA will enhance the national scope of the project, permitting the integration of digital fabrication and advanced manufacturing disciplines and technologies into all DFLC pilot offerings. Their endorsement of the importance of digital fabrication and commitment to the project is demonstrated by the fact that virtually all these NSF ATE Centers have or will be implementing Fab Labs.
