Experience

Daniel is a creative and innovative young designer                              with a passion for prototyping, 3D Cad modelling and                            showcasing extensive knowledge in 3D Printing. As an                  experienced designer working with many global                                    companies he has designed and manufactured                            products for many different industries and                                                    consumers. Daniel's ability to deconstruct a problem space and build upon it through sketching, 3D modelling and prototyping allows him to bring the best design aspects together to create a suitable final solution

Daniel has also worked in the education industry working for the University of Technology, Sydney using his skills in 3D modeling to teach the next generation of designers how to further their CAD skills and learn new features and design techniques. This has also allowed him to pass on his 3D printing knowledge which has come from 8 years of using, repairing and maintaining 3D printers. He also likes to use this skill in his spare time to build replica movie and game pros showcasing his hands on manufacturing skills.
