Stephen is a senior with a dual degree in MET and ECET. He was hired on to be a 3D lab technician in May 2014. He loves working with his hands and has a passion for a wide range of technology. He has built a majority of the furniture and wall art for the BoilerMaker Lab during the major redesign. He has a large interest in prototype development whether it be made from 3D printers, laser cutters, or wood CNCs. The technology that this lab provides has helped him developed a wide range of skills to prepare him for a career in design and manufacturing.
Zach is a senior with a dual degree in MET and MFET. He was hired on to be a 3D lab technician August 2015 because of his interest in 3D printing and he was apart of building the wall art for the BoilerMaker Lab. He wanted to advance his knowledge of 3D printing which he feels is the future of manufacturing. The ability to fix the printer when any issue arises seemed like a fun opportunity and a chance to grow his knowledge. Learning different brands of 3D printers and how they work is helping prepare him for his future career in manufacturing.
Anna is a junior majoring in Psychology. She began working in the lab in January 2015 after assisting on a research project about 3D printing animal bones. She is interested in the human aspect of 3D printing such as how humans interact and view the technology. The most interesting thing she has seen printed in the lab was a dragon which was printed on the Formlabs printer in the lab.
