From 2015 to 2016, I worked full-time as a Community Manager, Technical Support Engineer, and Technical Documentation Specialist for Voxel8 -- a 3D Printing hardware startup creating the first desktop platform for (dual) co-printing of multi-materials; including embedded and volumetric electronics by way of conductive inks combined with thermoplastics, epoxies, and more.
Voxel8 was spun out of the Lewis Group at Harvard University; an 3D Printing research lab focused on printed electronics, optical materials, light-weight structures, and microvascular architectures for cell culture and tissue engineering.
The Developer's Kit 3D Printer (i.e. or simply “DK”) was the first machine of its kind to market to both print embedded and volumetric electronic circuits for new innovations in antenna designs, test fixtures, PCBs, flexible circuits, and other conformal printing use cases.
Over the course of a year, I created the support program for the DK machine, as well as wrote the entire set of documentation for the platform through multiple iterations from alpha to final production machines. I worked internally with all Voxel8 teams including sales, marketing, software, hardware, manufacturing, and materials to help bring the DK platform to over one hundred desktops with partners in academic, electronics fabrication, industrial manufacturing, aerospace, medical, defense, military, and other spaces. For more specifics, please refer to my resume.
The Voxel8 Developer's Kit 3D Printing Platform successfully deployed in Q4 of 2016 to the anticipation of many in Additive Manufacturing industry, Industrial Manufacturing, and Material Science research groups around the world. Historical news can be found here.

By leveraging its internal Industrial Platform it intended to service custom research projects sought by large scale partners who would be interested in building innovations with a wide variety of new multi-materials created by Voxel8.
