The Youngstown State University Research Foundation has signed a partnership agreement with the Israeli startup PrintSYSt to help make 3D-printing simpler and more accessible.
PrintSYSt has patented an application that is designed to assist users to 3D print faster with a variety of designs and to achieve new peaks in printing. The company released its PrintSYSt Beta 0.1 version in June 2017 and is collaborating with academic and commercial 3D printing service providers in Europe, Asia, Australia and now, with the YSU partnership, in the United States.
PrintSYSt will be applied in support of printing equipment at YSU and YBI. YSU is home to commercial equipment representing all seven methods of 3D printing, believed to be the first such technological milestone in the eastern United States.
The YSU-PrintSYSt agreement is the latest partnership coming out of the 2017 trip to Israel. In July, the president of Western Galilee College made a return trip to Youngstown and signed a memorandum of understanding for a variety of educational collaborations with YSU. YBI has announced a new partnership with The Junction, a business accelerator in Israel, to create the Israel-YBI Collaborative.
