Recently, substantial funding from the Ohio Board of Regents and support from the university led to the development of the Center for Innovative Manufacturing facility at Cleveland State University (CSU) (see Figure 1), a premier research facility focused on satisfying the growing technological and engineering needs of the Northeast Ohio region and beyond. The Ohio Board of Regents and university funding led to the acquisition of advanced polymer 3D printing equipment capable of supporting advanced scientific research activities within CSU, as well as research collaboration with other universities, and local, state and national industries. The Center for Innovative Manufacturing is a shared user-facility that is available for use by all researchers on CSU campus, including the Mechanical Engineering, Engineering Technology, Civil, and Chemical and Biomedical Engineering departments.
