Has been folowing the industry since 1986. Co-author of "3D Printing For Dummies".
A user of MakerBot's pre-Stratasys Replicator, Mendel Max, Rostock Max, two 3DR RepRaps, and is currently building an all-metal Tantillus/Ingentis.
Involved in the 3D modeling and printing industry since 2001. Currently in the process of completing a "Kickstarter" project to launch a mobile application that will allow immediate advancement of our industry and provide several tools at a low cost to end users available for Apple and Android.
My son and I have been involved with the industry since late 2009. We organize and run the 3D Printer Village at the New York Maker Faire. We currently have 7 printers in our printer farm. We offer weekend seminars on building printers and have had 100% success with our Prusa i3 Builds.
If any of you have seen the show Community, or the recent Captain America movie, I was in charge of the CG for both of their title sequences. Or if you happen to have kids who watch Sesame Street and you've seen the CG segment Abby's Flying Fairy school, I was in charge of the CG for that, and built nearly all of the characters for the show, and most of the sets.
I'm currently the main developer for BotQueue.com which allows you to control 3D printers from anywhere in the world. You can submit large jobs to an army of printers, and they will churn parts out. I'm also currently working on powder based methods.

Hi all. I'm Rob and very interested in 3d printing. I've been doing my mech engineering diploma and nearly done but I want to jump into manufacturing models already!!
I've been looking at the CubeX duo and trio printers. Does anyone have...
Is this about the best tool or the cheapest one? They aren't always the same thing. The "best" design tool also isn't the same for everyone. Different people want to design different things, and they need different capabilities in their software....
I've started a series of videos about doing modeling for home 3D printing using Blender. I hope they'll help people and if you have questions you'd like me to answer you can comment on the videos or ask here.
If you're already familiar with 3D modeling Blender will be just a little bit of headache as you get yourself around the interface, and then it'll be as smooth as butter. I came from a Maya/3DSMax background and found Blender painless to get into...
I know the title doesn't really say it very well, but 3D Printing Blueprints is the beginner's guide to modeling for home 3D printing using Blender. I happen to know the author really well (I'm wearing his pants [I mean to say it's me]) so if you...
