Jakob had his first contact with 3D printers when he fixed an older machine that was standing around in his university’s lab. Soon after he built his first machine (a Prusa i2 derivate at the time), which needed a lot of care due to low quality components. A partnership with iGo3D allowed him to upgrade to an Ultimaker 2 for which he created a series of tutorials and demonstrational videos.
In November of 2015 Jakob joined Formlabs‘ Customer Care team. He was the first Pro Service agent in the EU team and transitioned over to be Formlabs‘ first full time trainer a little over a year ago.
These days Jakob is traveling all over Europe, training Formlabs customers in the ways of SLA printing, taking him as far as Norway, the UK, Austria, Switzerland and all over Germany.
