How Josh Got Started

Josh’s journey took him from vocational school to the military, where he first learned about 3D printing. No matter the path your life takes, additive manufacturing can be part of your story.

From Idea to Reality in No Time

A patient had hardware around his ears getting in the way of his glasses. Josh envisioned a solution and took it from idea to end product in just a few days. Additive manufacturing made that possible.

“My goal when working in additive is to solve problems that other things haven’t.”

What It Takes

With critical thinking and problems solving skills, the opportunities with 3D printing are endless. Who knows, maybe someday you could be designing parts for a space mission.

A Perfect Mix

Josh explains how he has the perfect job; additive manufacturing gives you the tools you need to create solutions for a variety of problems people have.
