TJ McCue is crisscrossing the country in a an RV exploring the world of 3D printing. How cool is that!
According to his trip website, over 8 months TJ will make hundreds of stops with the goal of:
... exploring the cities, towns and off-the-path byways to uncover a fundamental change in the way things are designed and made, and how this is bringing radical change to business and to society at large.
At each waypoint, we are celebrating the creative process, while illuminating the impact of design through firsthand customer stories, consumer creativity and student innovations.
For those not familiar with TJ, he's a 3D printing expert and a key resource we turn to for information on all things 3D printing and small manufacturing.
TJ is reporting on his trip through a series of articles on his website. His most recent stop was at the Maker Space Artisan's Asylum, which is located in Somerville, MA. Key quote from his article on this stop:
In every makerspace I have been in or talked to, the core essence is always one that says, “Let’s figure this out together.” Some have called the maker movement a DIY (do-it-yourself) movement, but it is often far from a solo endeavor -- it is DIT - Do-It-Together.
Anyone interested in 3D printing, manufacturing in general or future trends should be following TJ as he travels the U.S.
