One of John’s favorite hobbies is 3D printing. He owns a 3D printer and runs a 3D printing and design service on 3D Hubs. He is a curator for MyMiniFactory and has free original 3d print designs for download on their website. He is also a Shapeways Crew member and sells original customizable prints on-line through their website. Every Thursday night he co-hosts a weekly 3D print meet-up at Fat Cat Fab Labs. One of the reasons John is so excited and involved in 3D printing is because he has a bachelor of science degree in Industrial Design from the University of Cincinnati which is one of the world’s best design schools according to Business Insider. Previously he designed cell phones, medical products and refrigerators.
One of John's many great strengths is the ability to design website as well as build out the front end.
John started out as a designer and has designed multimedia trainging software, DVDs, websites, iPhone apps and banner ads.
John has been 3D printing for over 3 years and have been 3D designing from a very early age.
Upload a 3D print file of your own or find one on the web and John can print it for you. If you need help designing a 3D print, John can help you with that as well. If you are lucky you might be able to see a live steam of what John is currently printing on the OctoPrint server that he built himself with some help from adafruit. Just click on the control tab here.
A great place to download free 3D models to print. Every 3d print has been tested before being added to the site. Including glow-in-the-dark dancing bears. :-)
If you would like to learn more about 3D printing, this is a great place to start. We meet every Thursday night at Fat Cat Fab Labs. Every week is different. Sometimes it's an informal get together and others times we have experts from the industry giving demos and lectures. Hope to see you there!
John is currently seeking out new opportunites in UI Development/Design and 3D printing. Please feel free to reach out to him with your projects and ideas.
