I've been dabbling in the 3D printing field since 2007 for the sake of promotional and gift desktop products. I finally became convinced and was an early adopter of the FormLab Form1 printer, then six months later went in with my dad and bought a Makerbot Replicator 2, and six months after that assembled a SeeMeCNC Rostock MAX v2 from their kit, which I've upgraded with their injection molded x-carriages and ball joint arms (gotta say, those upgrades are a must). I later had the privilege of working as a cluster printer technician at Aleph Objects for close to a year (maker of the Lulzbot TAZ and Mini) and worked with their machines in a manufacturing setting on a daily basis. I won't say I'm an expert (I'm confident, but not that arrogant), but I've watched the market, learned the common tools, tinkered with the machines and slice settings and experienced enough to have a "better than most" foundation to build upon. I'm always weary giving up my own IP, and am the worst critic of my own creations (it's the artist in me), but I deeply appreciate all the contributions other contributors have made, and respect the desires of the open-source movement and those who've contributed to it... and you'll (likely) survive my expounding bio.
