The most pervasive organizations that will purchase 3D printers are schools.I think that there is a great potential for me to provide schools with low cost 3D printer maintenance during the planning period of my substitute schedule. I'm a licensed short-term substitute teacher. I currently have a contract with the St. Paul and Minneapolis School Districts and I am more than happy to fill out the paperwork to be a substitute in other school districts. When I was substitute teaching full time, I made more than I do at Boston Scientific but the work lacked a sense of meaning and fulfillment. However, I bet that there is a way for me to be a substitute teacher, covering 1 week vacations and bringing 3d printing workshops to geometry, engineering, science and art classes all around the twin cities in a fulfilling manner.
It might seem strange that a lone Biologist can master 3D printing but there is a wealth of people sharing free knowledge and tools on the internet. I am not mastering 3d printing alone, I have an army of mad scientists, mad engineers, mad lawyers, ect on my side. Okay, maybe they aren't on MY side but we are all allies in the battle against ignorance. What do you need to defeat ignorance? Maybe I could be an ally in your battle.
