Hosted by Joris Peels (3DPrint.com, Executive Editor) and Maxwell Bogue (3Doodler, Co-Founder & Investor), 3DPOD brings 3D printing & additive manufacturing news and insight, with straight talk from two bona fide 3D printing pros.
Listen to two of the most brilliant and colorful minds in the industry as they discuss 3D printers, materials and corresponding 3D tech. 3D Pod offers a grasp on the world of 3D printing, replete with first hand experiences, technical know-how, industry histories and stories. Lots of stories.
Joris Peels is the Netherlands-based Editor in Chief of 3DPrint.com, the #1 source for 3D printing news and industry resources. Joris has more than a decade’s experience working for 3D printing companies including Shapeways, Materialise, Formlabs, Ultimaker, MakePrintable, Hewlett Packard. Joris lives, eats, sleeps and dreams 3D printing and tries to give a dose of realism and truth to the hype surrounding 3D printing.
Maxwell Bogue is Co-Founder and Inventor of the 3Doodler, the world's first 3D printing pen and one of the most successful Kickstarter projects of all-time. Once described by the Huffington Post as "the happiest man at CES" Maxwell has been invited to keynote and speak at events worldwide including LeWeb, Tech+ and CE Week, both on the 3D printing industry and getting companies off the ground.
3DPOD Episode 72: Metal AM Applications with Julien Cohen, 3DEO
Julien Cohen worked for Stratasys Direct and Eaton in Application Development before joining 3DEO. He takes us through what application engineering is and how it helps customers. We also have a lively discussion about the relative merits of various technologies and approaches. Additionally, he explains 3DEO's unique binder jetting technology and how the company is using it for serial production in 3D printing. We talk about future scenarios in manufacturing and what will power the 3D printing. A lovely conversation and we hope that you enjoy it as well.
3DPOD Episode 71: Formlabs COO Jason Fullmer
Jason Fullmer is the COO of Formlabs. We spoke to him about the company's global supply chain, including sourcing, interruptions, reverse logistics, shipping, quality assurance, quality management and many more topics. Operations and supply chain are super important to businesses, but we often overlook this importance and focus on the more obvious sides of a businesses, such as their marketing or strategies. A good idea is nothing without execution and excellence in operations. We hope that a look at some aspects of supply chain and quality will make this a handy and interesting talk for you.
3DPOD Episode 70, 3D Printing in China: Gordon Styles, Star Rapid Founder
Gordon Styles is a true 3D printing pioneer. He bought a stereolithography machine very early and built the UK's biggest service bureau off of it. After selling said business, he moved to China to start Star Rapid, a leading 3D printing and low-volume manufacturing service. Gordon tells about the very early days of the 3D printing industry. He also discusses entrepreneurship, building a business, marketing, doing business in China, 3D printing, CNC and many other subjects. Gordon is very frank and has a lot of really sage advice, as well as some war stories. We really liked talking to Gordon and hope that you enjoy listening to him, as well.
3DPOD Episode 69: Makerbot CEO Nadav Goshen
Nadav Goshen is the CEO of MakerBot. He talks to us about how the firm has developed from a scrappy startup to a part of Stratasys, including Makerbot's identity and role. We discuss the education market, the business of catering to engineers, and Makerbot's offering. We also get into manufacturing with clusters of desktop 3D printers and the future of 3D printing. Nadav explains what his vision is for the future and if the consumer 3D printing revolution will happen after all. We really liked speaking with Nadav and hope that you'll like listening.
3DPOD Episode 68: 3D Printing Sci-Fi with Cory Doctorow
Cory Doctorow is a sci-fi author who is passionate about privacy, digital rights, makers, internet freedom, copyright and, also, 3D printing. In this talk, although we do get the distinct feeling that Cory is now mega-passionate about internet rights and less so about our industry, Cory gives us good tips on how to foster collaborative, open learning communities and make sure that open stays open. We also get a zoomed in and zoomed out view of the future and the battle for online rights. We really felt like we could have listened to Cory for hours and really hope that you enjoy this talk.
3DPOD Episode 67: Remote Print Monitoring with The Spaghetti Detective’s Kenneth Jiang
Kenneth Jiang's The Spaghetti Detective uses machine learning and vision to analyze your FDM prints. Relying on Octoprint, the tool looks at your 3D printer to determine whether or not it is printing spaghetti.
We manage to belatedly ask Kenneth what causes spaghetti, but most of the podcast is us brainstorming with Kenneth about all of the types of things his tool can do. Machine learning and machine vision will play an important part in 3D printing, but we have very few actual practical working examples. This is one of those few and we find out all about it, as well as Kenneth's own story, in this podcast.
We need more quality content like this in the 3D Print space. MOAR episodes!
Great interviews, but...
... PLEASE adjust the intro and outro levels! Your listeners are getting their ears blasted.
