We’re always talking about the future of design, the future of technology, the future of MAKING. In a world where smart cars will drive themselves in rush hour traffic, a world where 3D printing is enabling the blind to experience outer space through touch…how do we find the next ‘big thing’? Maker Galaxy is a show that explores the crossroads of Design, Technology, and the Future of Making.

This week we talked with Inventor and All-Around Cool Guy Greg Mark, CEO and Founder of Markforged 3D printers. Greg has brought his knowledge of working with carbon fiber to bring us the world’s first carbon fiber 3D printer. We’ll talk with Greg about everything from how he assembled a world-class team to develop the product to how he thinks it’ll be used.

We’ll be discussing:

  • Best sandwich on earth?
  • Aerospace engineer to 3D printer designer?
  • Carbon fiber + 3D printing
  • The making of the Mark One 3D Printer
  • Lesson for launching a product
  • …and more!
