QGITS: What do you hope people learn today about MatterHackers?

Kevin: Today we are at SoCal MakerCon showing people the technology and what 3D printing is all about. At MatterHackers we are passionate about 3D printing and it’s potential as a game-changing technology and we want people to get hands-on experience with different printers and materials, see them working in live demonstrations and understand what it takes to create a 3D object.

QGITS: How did MatterHackers get started?

Kevin: My partner Lars Brubaker first introduced me to this as long ago as 5 years. We sold our last company Reflexive Entertainment to Amazon and after we finished there, we hooked back up again and this was the thing we wanted to do. 3D printing additive manufacturing – it’s so trans formative, has such a power to make people’s lives better and enable them.
