With a cutting edge design for a new 3-D printer, Lebanese national Sevag Babikian came third in MBC's Stars of Science "edutainment" TV show earlier this month. While showing a promising start to rise to the final three of nine shortlisted participants, and the only Lebanese represented, 27-year-old Babikian had to settle for third place. He explained that while 50 percent of each elimination round was based on public voting on the weekly show, the other half came from the seven judges' marks. Babikian said the new five-axis 3-D printer that he presented was more eco-friendly than those currently in the market. While the technology has been around for around 20 years, a raft of smaller and more affordable "desktop" 3-D printers have recently become available to businesses and consumers.Currently, comparable desktop 3-D printers range from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand.
