This reminds me of the resources available at our local university.  I think everyone should at least be a aware of the capabilities and resources available at your local university.

Good question, jmiller. But I imagine a lot of people might not know it's there unless they are in the local community. I wonder beyond the press how much publicity this site is getting? If others outside of the state to use it, would be good to raise awareness.

I like the idea of setting up these types of facilities.  It appears from the name of the article that anyone can go and use the facility.  Is that true or is it just for companies in Ohio?

I would like to know who said that 50% of our industry in Ohio is instruments and controls.  That would have to be a very broad interpretation of "instruments and controls", or a very narrow interpretation of "industry".

I might believe that 50% of our industry in Ohio is manufacturing related, but not some specific segment of manufacturing.

Sounds like a quote from someone who had something to sell!

Ohio's manufacturing boom

Nice price, Cabe. I was surprised to discover that a full 50 percent of Ohio's industry is in instruments and controls. That's quite amazing, as is the collaborative nature of the program you describe.

Thanks for this post on a really innovative idea. I'm wondering, Cabe, if you know of any other industries doing this in the past? I'm trying to think of an example, but nothing comes to mind. This type of idea should really spur innovation from individuals and small companies that might normally not have a shot at making an impact. Are the companies that contributed machinery and the university paying entirely for this effort or do you know if there was other funding?
