Carnegie Mellon University alumnus Anthony Hughes was drawn to the field of engineering because of the art he saw in making and building things. He has focused his career around this sentiment, both through his tenure in the software industry and the advanced technology sector. Now the founder and president of 3D-printing innovation strategy and design firm The Lanterman Group, Hughes is combining his expertise and passion into a national 3D-printing training program for industry and government.
Called ACADEMI, the training program is part of a long-term strategic alliance between America Makes, the national accelerator for 3D printing, and The Lanterman Group. The two are combining their efforts to develop ACADEMI as a nationally recognized training curriculum for additive manufacturing.
