3D printing

SciTech Now Episode 529

In this episode of SciTech Now, discovering the craft of video game storytelling, NASA’s dying robot and the impact of 3D printing on medical devices.

3-D Printing for Space

3-D printing is known for creating models and smaller scale products, but now manufacturers are using this technology to develop metal parts for aircrafts and rockets. Join us as we dive deeper into this innovative process of additive manufacturing.

SciTech Now Episode 438

In this episode of SciTech Now, we take a look at the study detecting fake ID’s; Ainissa Ramirez discusses the engineering behind the ironing board; the interplay between religious experiences and the brain; and 3D printing for space.

Building bones

As new technologies continue to evolve, 3D printing bones have become a reality. Bio-engineers are developing degradable bones that, once placed in a human body, will eventually be replaced by a person’s own growing bone tissue. We go inside the lab of the Syracuse Biomaterials Institute to learn more.

Reaching greater depths with 3D printing

Syntactic foam is a strong and buoyant material commonly used in the manufacturing of submarines. Now, a team of researchers have developed a method of 3D printing components of syntactic foam that could take submarines to greater depths. Nikhil Gupta, Associate Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at New York University’s Tandon School of Engineering, […]

SciTech Now Episode 430

In this episode of SciTech Now, we explore a library full of millions of insects in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes; explore a method of 3D printing taking submarines to greater depths; the next generation of the space telescope; and a technological defense against earthquakes.

3D printing your medicine

3D printing is poised to bring a new era of medication delivery to patients. Vivek Gupta, Assistant Professor of industrial pharmacy at St. John’s University in Queens, New York, joins Hari Sreenivasan to discuss how this will change the future of medicine.

SciTech Now Episode 421

In this episode of SciTech Now, meet a venomous snail hunter; take a look at how your medicine can be 3D printed; a scientist creating body parts using produce found in your kitchen; and the catastrophic coastal flooding in one North Carolina coastal town.

Exploring opportunities in additive manufacturing

Could 3D printing dominate the future of parts manufacturing? The United States Military is exploring opportunities in additive manufacturing and a lab at Penn State University is playing an important role.  

A look into the cybersecurity issues of 3D printing

3D printing is pervasive across many industries from medical to automotive to aviation to tech and more. But are there security risks associated with 3D printing? Can 3D printers be hacked? Hari Sreenivasan discusses the cybersecurity issues of 3D printing with Nikhil Gupta, Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at New York University.
