According to Ben Carroll, Minister for Industry and Employment,“3D printing is a game changer for manufacturing – which is why we’re backing the technology so more local companies can reap the benefits. This new hub will help local manufacturers innovate, become more productive and excel in future industries. Victoria’s manufacturing industry contributes $27.7 billion to the Victorian economy, with over 13,000 businesses employing more than 283,000 people. It also exported $18.16 billion of manufactured goods in 2016-17″.
