At this point, who doesn’t know Bre Pettis? Or MakerBot? The former school teacher was early in (2009) in the 3D printing world. Founder and CEO of MakerBot, the company was acquired by Statasys.
He next founded Bold Machines, the innovation workshop at Stratasys, so no worries: Pettis is still front and center and very much part of the NY 3D Printing world.
And in case you didn’t know it, he was also founder of igniteNYC and cofounder of NYCResistor, a hacker collective with a shared space located in downtown Brooklyn. We meet regularly to share knowledge, hack on projects together, and build community. He’s been a fixture in the NY tech community for quite some time now…
