    Hey everyone, I'm Jonny, and I'm born and raised in Toronto.  I love to travel and am a huge fan of music.

     

    I'm Mosaic's Customer Success Lead, and I aim to make your experience with Palette a great one!  I'm sure most of you have received a message or e-mail from me, and I love to hear about what you're doing with Palette and how we can provide any support or assistance. 

    I'm also a rare case here at Mosaic, as my 3D printing experience started when I began working at Mosaic!  3D printing was always an interesting technology to me, and I've gotten to appreciate it more now that I have the opportunity to print with and learn about it on a daily basis.  I've printed a few items on the Type A Series 1 and Dremel 3D-40 printers in our office, and have been able to learn everything about Palette.

    I'm looking forward to meeting all of you, if you ever have any questions, please feel free to message me anytime!

    Greetings!

    1) Personal - Frank Tuttle - Columbus, OH - photo, 3D, tech, science geek  - basically lived here in Central Ohio all my life. I love to travel (I've been to all 50 US States, China, Mexico, Canada, and Finland).

    2) Occupation - 26+ years as a high school science teacher (currently chemistry & AP/IB physics) and professional photographer 

    3) Printing Experience -  Built my first two printers - an original Kickstarter Printr bot, a Printr bot Plus, and go so frustrated with them, I bought a Series 1 from Type A Machines, and now have a Series 1 Pro at school as well (courtesy of our education foundation and the PTO). I design and print a large variety of jigs and devices for school to help with projects and collaborate with our calculus teacher on designs and prints for her classes. I work with students on Science Olympiad projects (robots & hovercrafts this year). I've got a son in high school who is way better than I am at 3D drawings (I use SketchUp, he uses SolidWorks).

    Hi there, my name is Maja!  I'm originally from Slovenia, and currently work in the banking industry in Toronto.  I've always been interested in art and sculptures, and have just started to get involved in the 3D printing world.  I believe that it's a very interesting technology and I am fascinated at the possibilities!

    Personal: Jeremy Wrezinski, Albany, OR. I've been an AutoCAD 3D solid modeler for about 25 years. Moving into the 3D printing world, was just a matter of time.

    Occupation: Full time employed drafter at a local tech firm. Inventor (newly awarded patent (pending) and trademark for 3d printed product.)

    Experience: About a year ago, I bought my first 3D printer.. Was a Dremel IdeaBuilder. Still running strong, but most parts have been upgraded and well.. Yeah. There's that. Currently own 3 other printers, which are assisting me with getting my new product launch up and going. The 4th (a FlashForge Dreamer) is hooked up to the Palette, so that I can make fun unique items related to my product launch. It's quickly become my new toy in the house.

    Eventually, I will be looking at purchasing a second Palette, as I am hoping to bridge the gap between a dual head and 4 colors coming through each. I have a need to use 7 unique colors, and am hoping to be able to accomplish this within the year. 

    Looking forward to seeing how this project evolves as it becomes more popular with the users. It's a great tool. A little on the high price side, but I managed to get in early and get the discount to celebrate your birthday. Congratulations and THANK YOU!

    Hey everyone jay here from San Antonio Texas originally from NJ.

     

    Right now I am working as a software engineer for an ERP company going on seven years now. Also started my own game company with our first mobile game about to hit the market.

     

    Printing experience still rocking my first printer the robo r1. But just ordered the R2. Also just started learning fusion 360 and my first projects will probably be a lithoplane box with electric power. And my own design chess set. 

     

    P.S. I promise to make some cool stuff if my palette can get here faster than August lol

    1) Personal

    Hi Jarrod from Perth Western Australia. I'm a hands on sort of person and usually have numerous projects on the go, ranging from small scale electronics stuff to bigger projects like my go-kart and arcade cabinet which I'll finish one day :)

    2) Occupation 

    I work as a Control Systems Technician working primarily in the Mining & Power Generation/Distribution engineering space. I specialize in SCADA/HMI systems but also do the odd bit of PLC programming and instrumentation.

    3) Printing Experience

    I had exactly zero experience up until recently when I bought myself an Anet A8 to have a play with, closely followed by a Creality CR-10 and then 2 genuine Prusa MK2Ss. Its been a steep learning curve but an enjoyable one. My A8 has been canabilised to become a P3Steel and my CR-10 is getting a E3D v6 upgrade at the moment. My Prusas are constantly on the go printing Squishy Turtles & Pokemon characters for my daughters friends :) 

    I'm looking forward to getting the Palette+ so I can get into the modelling side of things and producing some great multi-colour prints.

    Hello!

    1) Personal

    I'm Matt, aka Senjak.  I live in the Twin Cities metro region. I play lots of board games, role playing games and watch anime and science fiction. Oh, and I cook and bake.  I live with two cats, Apsalari and Mab.

     

    2) Occupation 

    I work for a major storage company, so 3d printing is a hobby and not what I do for a living.

    3) Printing Experience

    I've played around with 3d printing for years, mostly I've been really unhappy with the results. My first printer was a Makerbot 2x back when they were new.  Trying to level the bed drove me nuts.  Trying to get the first layer to stick was even more annoying. I put it in a corner and didn't touch it except to move it.

    My second printer was a little M3D.  Auto-leveling was nice, but the print bed was very small, and the objects didn't look all that great when they came out.

    My third printer is a Prusa i3 v3 that's mostly built. Remember my cats? Well, they don't like it when I spend extensive time playing with hardware :-) So I've about an hour of work to go. I've greatly enjoyed building the kit.

    My next printer is also a Prusa, but it is a pre-assembled one that will be here at about the same time as the Palette 2 Pro that I just ordered.

    Back in 1999 I spent lots of time playing around with Bryce-4 building cool things; however, now I'm beginning to look into Tinkercad and other programs.
