Nora Toure: Priyanka, could you let us know about your background and what brought you into 3D printing in the first place?
Priyanka Nadig: 3D printing gives an opportunity to understand the printing machine, materials that can be printed and the behavior of materials on changes in the machine settings.
As engineers we have to constantly find the best fit of machine settings (parameters) and the material to arrive at the right product with properties that suit the application. This challenging approach is the very reason that brought me into 3D Printing.
