The first time I heard about 3D printing was in 2011 when a friend shared a video of a MakerBot Replicator on Facebook. I remember the feeling of my jaw dropping to the floor and I thought "this is the kind of machine I've always wanted."
After graduating from UCLA as a Bioengineering B.S. in 2012, I got a MakerBot Replicator 1 Dual. I've been 3D printing ever since. I'm glad I've been able to grow with the Thingiverse/MakerBot community. There has been a LOT of learning as we're constantly figuring out new techniques to improve 3D printing. It's a fun ride!
