Printrbot and the Future of 3D Printing by Brook Drumm

In this first episode of the 3D Printing Society Podcast, I interview Brook Drumm, founder and CEO of Printrbot.

He talks about his projects with Printrbot, why he believes in open hardware and how he adapts to his community. He explains which types of customers use his 3D printers and shares his coming projects for Printrbot. An episode full of useful insight about what it takes to start a business with personal 3D printers and where the market is going.

First 3D printer available on the market for less than $500, first highly successful Kickstarter campaign for a 3D printer, top rated in the latest Make: Ultimate Guide to 3D Printing 2014, Printrbot keeps on being awesome.

Proudly showing off my Printrbot Junior

As a happy owner of a Printrbot Jr. and open hardware enthusiast, it felt natural to invite Brook Drumm on the show for the very first episode of the 3D Printing Society Podcast. Did you know that the Printrbot team is working on a CNC laser-cutter and a foam cutter?

    I have a Printrbot plus and was a bit of a problem to make it work but that allowed me to understand most of the hardware involved in 3D. I want to learn more about the software side, like G-code as many models are not printable and I want to make a bigger printer. A great printer to start and expand.
