In addition to teaching both young and old how to bring their ideas to life with CAD and 3D printing Brian also enjoys consulting with other businesses on how to use additive manufacturing to modernize the way companies deliver products to the customer!
Brian looks to continue to be a voice for 3D printing, and agile driven. short run customer reactive manufacturing (Industry 4.0) in as sustainable of a manner as is possible. I plan to continue to push 3D printing manufactures to consider material recycling, and open standards that allow equipment to be reliable, repairable, and upgradeable.
