I have always enjoyed design engineering and having tangible outputs of my work was important to me. I bought myself a 3D printer for hobby purposes as no South Australian 3D printing service existed. I then decided that I would fill that void and become Adelaide’s 3D printing service for commercial and student works, drawing on my education and work experience to provide a very personal and professional service like no other.
I love to meet customers face-to-face so I can explain in detail exactly what they need to know about 3D printing and to make sure the job gets done properly the first time. 3D Printing may not always work as me or my customer wants and it can often take some work to get parts printable but I do absolutely everything I can to make the job possible and keep the customer informed very regularly during the process. As of 2017 I have completed an increasing amount of laser cutting jobs for customers including many hybrid laser cut and 3D printed architectural models.
I own and use Geomagic Design as my engineering software package to allow me to create 3D models and read most 3D engineering formats.
My experiences with 3D printing include over 16,000 hours full time printing and CAD designing, collaborating on a design-for-3D printing handbook and co-inventing a brand new type of printer.
- Contract and permanent work
While owning and operating this business, I remain active and searching for contract and permanent positions with design engineering where my colleagues will take over during the daytime hours. I have a wide range of experiences and am after a junior engineer level position. If your organisation believes you can use my services and skills. Please contact me directly and I can forward my resume.
