NYU IT employees, cosplayers, and 3D design and printing pioneers Sarah Awad and Dhemerae Ford — known collectively as TheLaserGirls — are featured in NYU Q’s “NYU and Beyond” section.
Last year, TheLaserGirls (NYU IT employees Sarah Awad and Dhemerae Ford) were planning elaborate costumes for New York Comic Con 2018, which would test the limits of their 3D design and printing skills. This year, Connect checks in with them to find out how things went and what they learned from the experience.
Inside the MakerSpace at Tandon’s MetroTech Center, Victoria Bill, MakerSpace Manager, and Gabriella Cammarata, recent graduate of the Integrated Digital Media master’s program, are leading a class in which students 3D print braces for children living with cerebral palsy.
Syntactic foam is a substance that lends submersible vehicles both strength and buoyancy. Nikhil Gupta, an associate professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering, has developed a filament that will enable the foam to be printed on standard commercial 3D printers.
The world of 3D printing has expanded beyond the confines of plastics and includes various new 3D printing materials, with many more on the horizon. In some cases, the modern 3D printing process combines with age-old techniques to produce something amazing. Through a time-consuming and fascinating process, it is possible to “print” metal objects.
NYU Tandon’s new MakerGarage in Downtown Brooklyn is ready for the upcoming spring semester! The space boasts a wealth of 3D printing and design resources as well as collaborative work space, a computer lab, storage, a lounge, a video recording booth, and more.
In February of 2018, 3D scanning and printing experts at NYU’s LaGuardia Studio arrived at NYU Langone Health to scan the face of William Fisher. The Studio was tasked with creating a highly-detailed, lifelike mask to replace the face he was donating to another. This is the story of the 34 hours Studio staff spent as part of this procedure.
The November 18, 2018 episode of ABC News’ 20/20, titled “Brave New Face,” highlighted LaGuardia Studio’s contributions to a face transplant performed in January of 2018 by Eduardo D. Rodriguez, MD, DDS, chair of NYU Langone Health’s Hansjӧrg Wyss Department of Plastic Surgery and director of its Face Transplant Program. Staff at the Studio scanned […]
Using 3D Printing Technology to Explore Identity Heather Dewey-Hagborg, an ITP alumnus currently making waves with her “Probably Chelsea” art installation, was recently featured in a New York Times article about the Seattle Art Fair and women in the art world. Dewey-Hagborg’s project, which uses DNA from Chelsea Manning to create potential facial appearances, which […]
From cosmetics, to comics conventions, to the classroom, Sarah C. Awad and Dhemerae Ford use 3D printing to create new and exciting projects. Also known as TheLaserGirls, Awad and Ford met in NYU Steinhardt’s Studio Art program. Since then, they’ve formed a bond built on a shared interest in technology, art, and entertainment.
