Do you currently own a 3D printer?

Not now, and prefer to use 3D services available over the internet.

If you own a 3D printer, did you build it yourself?

No - and not sure I would recommend it. Unless you really want to do it.

Do you have experience creating 3D models with a CAD application?


How long have you been involved in or interested in 3D printing?

over 7 years

What do you hope to get from this group? Why are you joining it?

Share my experiences. Find like minded people. Hope to help get people beyond the hype of 3D printing and into the reality and future potential. Especially interested in disruptive technologies in digital health - including 3d printing of organs, tissue, bones, etc.


Frequent speaker/researcher on emerging technologies. I've evaluated, purchased, evangelized 3d printing for the last 7 years. Frequent speaker on 3D printing and other technologies. Would be glad to present and have a lot of ideas for topics.
