1) Frank J. Fedel, Assistant Professor in Orthotics & Prosthetics program at EMU / Created 3D printing lab for O & P
2) USA (Michigan)
3) Interest: Besides my professional work, I am an inventor and life caster (I create 3D castings of human body/parts), so I see lots of applications for 3D printing including prototyping (new ideas for prothetic/orthotic devices as well as my own inventions), mold making, tool development, etc. Also very interested in printing with silicones (platinum-cure specifically). I've designed products using CAD since the 90s, but was never able to create them, only virtually (animated demos, etc.) so this is a nice step forward.
4) I have the Printrbot Simple, DaVinci 1.0, FlashForge, Rostock Max V2 (latter two belong to the university), and have ordered/waiting for delivery of: DaVinci 2.0, FabTotum, Micro by M3D, New Matter MOD-t, and FLUX. Lots of experience playing with these, and looking forward to continuing to move forward, taking advantage of control systems on these devices, to perform other functions besides 3D printing.
