Nora Toure: Brenna, could you let us know about your background and what brought you to 3D printing in the first place?

Brenna McCornac: I got started in 3D printing in college. I was a mechanical engineering major at Penn State, and during my time there, I worked in a lab researching material properties of various metals produced by additive manufacturing.

Nora Toure: What was your very first experience with 3D Printing?

Brenna McCornac: My first experience with 3D printing was in college. I took a class in which our first project was to 3D print a toy car. I thought it was a fun challenge to rethink traditional structures with the freedom 3D printing creates.

Nora Toure: You are an Additive Manufacturing Engineer at Arconic. Could you tell us a bit more about your area of expertise?

Brenna McCornac: I specialize in the manufacturing of metal alloys for a variety of industrial applications.

Nora Toure: You are also Women in 3D Printing’s Austin, Texas’s ambassador. What can you tell us about Austin’s community? What makes it unique?

Brenna McCornac: Austin is a great area to be in because of the incredible resources we have available. There are tons of people to connect with, and a great market for 3D printing.
