Justin Finesilver is Co-Owner and Head of Marketing and Operations for The 3D Printing Store, headquartered in Northeast Denver. Not familiar with 3D Printing? This episode is wildly educational as Justin paints a full picture of what the technology is capable of.
We discuss everything from uses in manufacturing, re-creating parts thought to be extinct from more than 50 years ago, 3D printing food, and a whole lot more, including how the process actually works, which is fascinating. Find out what materials are used, why it’s appropriately referred to alternately as “additive manufacturing” and how we might see 3D printing utilized more in the future in everything from fighting disease to creating food.
What’s perhaps most interesting, however, is how The 3D Printing Store is making a difference today. One of the reasons I reached out to Justin was because I had seen this story about Boris the tortoise and how he gotten himself a brand new jaw thanks to Justin and his crew. It’s a touching story that’s also amazing when you consider the technology involved and how it’s possible to fashion a tortoise beak using 3D printing.
What’s possibly more amazing is that this isn’t even the first tortoise-related story these guys were involved with. Check out this tale of Cleopatra.
We talk about both of these stories and a whole lot more in this episode, so be sure not to miss this one. You can learn more about The 3D Printing Store on their website, and you can listen to this episode (as well as all the other episodes in the Jon of All Trades archive at our homepage, on iTunes, and on Stitcher.
