Researchers at CAM collaborate with industry partners enhance their comparative advantage and increase their global competitiveness using additive manufacturing technologies.
Our additive manufacturing expertise in design, materials, modelling and laser technologies enables us to support manufacturing across the aerospace, biomedical, automotive, mining, and energy sectors.
“The RMIT Centre for Additive Manufacturing was established to provide a hub of expertise in additive manufacturing at RMIT. We actively work with industry and research partners to produce R&D outcomes that translate readily to commercial results. As a research Centre we are committed to building enduring alliances that deliver value to our partners.”

Through RMIT’s Advanced Manufacturing Precinct, our staff access the latest in metal and polymer additive manufacturing systems as well as the high-end Computer Numerical Control machining centres.
Additionally, our researchers have access to RMIT's Microscopy and Microanalysis Facility (RMMF) and Micro Nano Research Facility (MNRF) for material characterization and analysis.
The Centre for Additive Manufacturing brings together key research staff within several schools to generate critical research mass in advanced manufacturing technology and design.
CEO of the Advanced Manufacturing Cooperative Research Centre (AMCRC) Andrew McLellan, cannot speak highly enough of the Centre for Additive Manufacturing or its director Milan Brandt.
McLellan credits Professor Brandt with helping shape the focus of his Centre.
"We've been in operation for seven years, and one of the things we've highlighted is that additive manufacturing is a technology of extremely high priority for Australian manufacturers," he says.
A simple method for making clear coatings that can block heat and conduct electricity could radically cut the cost of energy-saving smart windows and heat-repelling glass.
From keeping satellites on course to powering the world’s fastest internet, the science of light is transforming technology and could hold the key to a vibrant new era for Australian manufacturing.
Researchers have shown how a blend of old tyres and building rubble could be used as a sustainable road-making material, in a zero-waste solution to boost recycling and support the circular economy.
RMIT University is partnering with Europe’s leading 3D printing institute to support the transformation of Australian manufacturing.
