    A little clarification. Although CMU and Lehigh are the RAMP Program Managers and indeed are participating in several of the 13 projects, other PA universities - University of Pittsburgh, Penn State, Robert Morris - are also involved in projects. Likewise, although 3D Systems is participating in two projects and the announcement was held at their Langhorne, PA facility, other PA companies including Alcoa, RTI, EXOne, Praxair, etc. are also participating. In line with America Makes public/private partnership and leveraging of investments, the funding model itself is innovative - $1M in Federal funding through America Makes, $1M in PA state funds from D2PA, and $1M cost share from the industry participants.

    A little elucidation. In spite of the fact that CMU and Lehigh are the RAMP Program Managers and without a doubt are taking part in a few of the 13 ventures, other PA colleges - University of Pittsburgh, Penn State, Robert Morris - are likewise associated with tasks. In like manner, despite the fact that 3D Systems is taking an interest in two undertakings and the declaration was held at their Langhorne, PA office, other PA organizations including Alcoa, RTI, EXOne, Praxair, and so on are likewise partaking. In accordance with America Makes open/private association and utilizing of speculations, the financing model itself is creative - $1M in Federal subsidizing through America Makes, $1M in PA state assets from D2PA, and $1M cost share from the business members.
