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

Erin Winick: I have always been a maker at heart. As a kid, I loved making LEGO towers and sewing dresses. When I got into college, I immediately gravitated towards this machine that could create all of the designs I made on my computer in the real world. I was lucky to be able to have access to 3D printing throughout the entirety of my mechanical engineering degree.
