In this instalment of Meet the Makers, we caught up with Barry Lock, the creator of that brilliant basketball egg cup we featured a while ago. Here, he tells us all about how he got into 3D printing...
What attracted you to 3D printing and model-making? Do you have a technical background at all?
I've known about 3D printing since I was studying my degree in mechatronic engineering - that was also my base background. After that, I earned a higher diploma in product design. And then I started my product design career about 10 years ago, in different categories: lighting, consumer electronics, small appliances, kitchenware and gifts.
What software do you use to design your projects? How did you learn to use it?
I use Rhinoceros to design my projects, and I learnt that through my work, about 7 years ago.
