The college produced a public affairs program in partnership with PBS, which featured 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 was broadcast to approximately  2.6 million households in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. The program is available on the PBS39 YouTube site and the Lafayette College homepage.
