CAD design and 3D printing
« on: August 03, 2015, 09:39:40 AM »
Does anyone have experience with CAD, 3D printing, and/or bringing a product to market?  I am looking to speak with someone with technical knowledge and potentially partner with them on a product/business idea.

I have a lot of experience with CAD (professionally) and have done some 3D printing.  I haven't brought a product to market, but I have some technical knowledge that I'd share.

My brother actually does exactly what your looking for for a living. He actually specializes in product design, and patents, as well as 3D printing....and lives in Fort Lauderdale. PM me if still interested.

I've been doing mechanical engineering and product design for about a decade now. I started working on my own using solid works last year. I don't own a 3D printer yet but I do have access to one and I'd consider buying one if it made sense.
