Experts in Additive: 3D Printing with GoEngineer

Article by GoEngineer on May 09, 2022

GoEngineer's  3D printing  division has been helping companies solve problems for longer than many people realize 3D printing has even existed. As a result, it's not uncommon to find people with 10, 15, or even 20+ years of 3D printing experience. This experience includes working with elementary schools and universities, hobbyists, and startups to the world's largest corporations.

The team is made up of knowledgeable and experienced, but more importantly, passionate individuals who love helping others succeed. We chose five team members and asked them the same questions to highlight this. Amazingly, those five individuals represent over 78 years of combined 3D printing experience, so they know a thing or two.

What kept you in the 3D printing industry for so long in a world where job and career hopping are typical?

We found one thing that was consistent among the responses. No one mentioned promotions, income, awards, or anything about themselves. Instead, they expressed their love of getting to know people and their problems and offering collaborative solutions to those problems.

"I get to go to customers' facilities and it's like going on a new adventure!"

“I’m always running into different applications and people trying new applications with 3D printing”

They all had stories to share about how 3D printing was used to teach the next generation of innovators, launch new products and businesses, save businesses on the verge of closure, and even save lives. 

What are some of the most significant changes you've experienced during your time in the industry?

“Materials and technology advancements. The applications we are able to achieve are increasing every year.”

Most of the team's careers began with single 3D printing technology like FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling). Now, they can provide multiple technologies (PolyJet, SAF, SLA, P3, and Metals), allowing them to help solve more problems than ever before.

“'What's 3D printing?' is no longer the response you get when talking to people about it.”

As recently as 15 years ago, companies considered 3D printing their secret advantage over competitors. 3D printers were typically installed and tucked away behind closed doors; rarely discussed between companies.

Fast-forward to today, and 3D printing is standard practice in a variety of industries such as automotive, healthcare, consumer goods, and aerospace. Having access to 3D printers in-house makes it easy to bring ideas to life, test and validate products, and improve time to market.

From startups ready to unleash creativity to world-known industry leaders redefining their manufacturing methodology, GoEngineer has helped thousands of companies find the right solution to produce better products faster, easier, and more affordably.

Why should a company choose to work with GoEngineer for their 3D printing needs?

Once again, the importance of experience and multiple technologies rises to the top.

"Our experience helps us fully understand the problems companies face because there's a good chance we've helped others solve the same or similar problems before."

"We have so many machines and technologies to help you with your desired goals, and if we don't have a solution, we know someone who does."

While this directly represents less than 10% of the additive manufacturing team here at GoEngineer, the feeling is shared throughout the entire organization. We have built our business on the foundation of service and support and that hasn’t changed in over 30 years.


With over 35 offices and training centers throughout the United States and Canada, we are here for you and ready to help. If you’d like to discuss your business and its challenges to come up with innovative solutions together, please  contact us!
