University and 3D Printing Industry Collaboration to Be Featured on PBS

Lafayette College seniors Jake Hyatt and Max Bergelson visited Sigma's 20,000 square-foot Technology Commercialization and New Product Manufacturing Center to film a project for their Political Economy course.

The college is producing a public affairs program in partnership with PBS and the broadcast will feature Sigma's 3D rapid prototyping and manufacturing services.

According to Lafayette professor and executive producer Mark Crain, Lafayette College constantly wrestles with ways to bridge academics and real world developments. "The opportunity for Max and Jake to visit Sigma Design Company and see first hand how 3D printing is transforming business and society is an amazing opportunity.  They'll learn even more as they produce our broadcast that illuminates this innovative, complex technology for PBS39 viewers," he said.

The program will air in November and will be broadcast to approximately  2.6 million households in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.  After the first airing, the program will be available on the PBS39 YouTube site and the Lafayette College homepage.

Sigma's 3D Rapid Prototyping FDM Machine can take your design concept and create a working prototype in three days. To learn more about our 3D Rapid Prototyping services or to submit a file and receive a quote, please visit:
