Deputy Secretary Dr. Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall traveled to the National Security Campus to visit the new campus and thank employees for their service on August 25. The Deputy Secretary made stops at several tour locations to get a first-hand look at the advanced manufacturing operations. 
During the visit, she got an inside look at the NSC’s Additive Manufacturing (AM) and 3D printing capabilities. AM has opened up a world of design options used to create innovative and timely solutions for the broader national security mission. While additive techniques can create traditional parts, it also allows greater design flexibility to create parts that are hollow inside, have a complex geometry, or even a part within a part.
