About the Author
Joe Larson, identified on-line as "the 3D Printing Professor," is one half artist, one half mathematician, one half instructor, and one half technologist. it began in his adolescence, doing uncomplicated programming and low-resolution electronic artwork on a Commodore sixty four. As know-how advanced, so did Joe's dabbling, finally taking him to 3D modeling whereas in highschool and faculty, and he momentarily pursued a level in desktop animation. He deserted that and as an alternative grew to become a math instructor, after which moved to software program improvement for 10 years prior to returning to schooling, educating expertise in college.
When Joe first heard approximately 3D printing, it took root in his brain, and he went again to dirt off his 3D modeling abilities. In 2012, he received a Makerbot Replicator 3D printer within the Tinkercad/Makerbot Chess problem, with a chess set that assembles right into a robotic. considering then, his designs on Thingiverse were featured on Thingiverse, Gizmodo, Shapeways, Makezine, and different locations. He at present produces weekly video clips approximately layout for 3D printing on his YouTube channel, http://www.youtube.com/user/mrjoesays.
