New Lab at BK Navy Yard-Intervu of Scott Cohen, Partner
New York City is positioned to become home to the first world-class 3D Printing «Cluster»—an industry-segment ecosystem for Additive Manufacturing. Here, Land Grant interviews Scott Cohen, Partner of New Lab at New Lab Beta, a prototype of the planned—and now building—facility at the Brooklyn Navy Yard's former Building 128. New Lab will occupy 84,000 square feet of space in the rechristened «The Green Manufacturing Center»—a locus for new industrial processes and re-industrialization in New York City.This re-industrializing initiative promises to return NYC to its former world prominence in manufacturing — but in the very different modes of Smart or Digi-Production, hyper-diversity in offerings, lightning commercialization cycles, super-customization, DIY Preneur democratizing of process and the necessity for online relationship-building in a networked, SocMed-modulated world marketplace.With our free eNewsletter «This Week in NYC3DP»---at NYC3DP.com---we're providing an interest-aggregating tool for City «Additive-Manufacturing» players at every level. We want to help build a «3DP» (a trending contraction of the term «3D Printing») business-innovation spectrum across a new cross-connected NYC community. Our 3DP Knowledge Platform tools are designed to help us all create a wider—yet integrated—«district» of 3DP solutions, jobs, synergy and business success in New York.
