You’re looking at a picture of Stephen McKendry-Smith of Manitoba’s Industrial Technology Centre. This organization is a government-funded operation dedicated to economic development, particularly in the use of new technologies such as 3D printing. 
The ITC now has a Dimension SST1200es onsite that they use to demonstrate 3D printing concepts and technology to interested small businesses. They’ll even print a model for the business to show them how it can work for them. Businesses can see, touch and understand exactly what it can do. 
We think this approach is quite appropriate, as there are many businesses who are still unaware of 3D printing and the numerous advantages it may hold for them. If businesses everywhere had access to this type of advisory center, we think a lot more progress could be made.

Kerry Stevenson, aka "General Fabb" has written over 8,000 stories on 3D printing at Fabbaloo since he launched the venture in 2007, with an intention to promote and grow the incredible technology of 3D printing across the world. So far, it seems to be working!
