As the flood of new users is coming, I though it would be a good idea for us to get to know each other a little bit!
From the Kickstarter comments, it seems like there is a great variety of users spanning many interesting backgrounds. I think this forum will be a fantastic place to gain insight from multiple perspectives and I can’t wait to hear more about the Form users!! Big thanks to the Formlabs team for putting this project together and letting us get in on the ground floor, I would love to hear your stories too!
So, who are you? What do you do? Why do you love 3d printing?
I guess I’ll start!
I grew up with computer animation, dropped out of high school and started working when I was 18 (sorry mom!). I have been working on films in the visual effects / feature animation industry for the past 18 years. I got interested in 3d printing many years ago, but became really engaged around the time that Shapeways first launched. With a plethora of character designs locked inside the computer, the feeling of finally seeing some as physical objects was truly unique, and something that I will never forget. I guess you could say I’m completely hooked .
I will be creating prototypes for designer toys and can’t wait to get started!
