We want to introduce you to our newest blog series, CAD Micro Innovation Enablers. This will be a chance for you to get to know our team and all of their accomplishments, plus potentially learn something new about the awesome technologies they work with. This week we want to introduce Jean-Maxime Marleau, CAD MicroSolution’s digital manufacturing support specialist.
Jean-Maxime is always looking at the latest technologies. He likes to tinker, he can’t stand having his brain switched off, he is always working on his next project whether it is mechanical or electronic.
I have done some college in IT, I used to love programming and could spend whole nights working on a project, but then I realized that I would only enjoy that if the project seems fun to me, I decided to quit and keep that as a hobby. I’ve been at a trade school in automated systems electromechanics. Then I worked for manufacturing companies specialized in pharmaceutical and cosmetics mostly.
In 2016 I grew very interested in 3d printing as it was a new challenge for me and because I have good mechanical and electrical knowledge, so I started building my first 3D printer from scratch.
I would say building my own machines is very memorable, however, I have printed several life-sized props from video games and I’m working on printing a whole armor. This should be interesting!
I would say at this moment we are barely scratching the surface, we need to adopt the technology and get to learn how to leverage all of its possibilities. I think we should focus on providing accessibility to the technology and specifically for our youth, the sooner they will learn how to work with it, the sooner they will show us all of the incredible breakthrough possible with additive manufacturing.
Well, I think we all agree that medical is very important and it is something I wish additive manufacturing will become mainstream there sooner rather than later. Also, I keep a close eye on Volumetric Additive Manufacturing (VAM) or Xolography, it is a type of resin printing but it essentially prints in 3d instead of layer by layer.
