I am from San Diego, CA and I work on Growth for AstroPrint
I am interested in 3D Printing because I believe that it is an industry/technology that is in it's infancy with a huge potential for growth. Humans have used their hands to create objects for millions of years (i.e: ancient caveman carving sticks or stones) and 3D Printing (in my mind) is a modern day extension of that same drive to create stuff.
That's why I am fascinated with the idea of 3D Printing --- especially democratizing 3D Printing so anyone is able to have access to it.
Finally, it's fun as hell, so I can't complain
These days, the two main printers I use are: Flashforge Creator Pro and a PrintrBot Simple Metal.
Love them both.
Would love to know where everyone is from and how you guys got into 3D Printing etc..
