 Erik  Netherlands
I'm co-developer of the Ultimaker.com 3D printer. I'm an open source entrepreneur. I created two ICT startups that do well. I'm doing research into innovation and disruptive technologies. This is where RepRap, FabLabs and other fabrication facilities come into play: professional fabrication is becoming more and more accessible for the creative or even the average person. I've built and share 4 RepRap's (+derivatives) and 3D printing objects, especially on your own machine, is really a magical experience. I'm also building more RepRaps with the FabLabs in the Netherlands and I give presentations on user fabrication at:
