Several years ago, additive manufacturing and its derivatives was in the spotlight as a ground-breaking technology, and although it is no longer as novel as it used to be, it is bigger than ever. The possibilities that this manufacturing methods offers are growing, turning many impossible design solutions into a reality. Bob Markley is one of the early adopters of technology, and he took a leap of faith in 2013 fully embracing it. The learning curve was steep and there were many trials and errors that help him gain knowledge and further hone his skills in this area.
- Bob Markley found his experience as an engineer for a racing team to be useful when working with the ProX 200.
- 3rd Dimension has both 3D printers for additive and CNC equipment for machining.
- 3rd Dimension’s flexibility gives it a diverse customer base and insurance against an economic downturn.
“Sustained financially by his original loan and a small but growing base of customers, Mr. Markley purchased a second ProX 200, followed by a 300 model and later a 320 that he beta tested for the company.”
