About 3D Printing Pathways

Hi, my name is Jacob Wiedner and I am the founder of 3D Printing Pathways. I have a extensive background in 3D printing, Mechanical Engineering, and Education. Through my previous experience teaching STEM classes to students 5th grade through high school, I noticed a concerning lack of education surrounding 3D printing and manufacturing in general. I have heard from many teachers that they want to use 3D printers but they don't know how to use them or where to even get started. That is why I started  3D Printing Pathways.  I want to help students and teachers alike, achieve their goals with 3D printing. Everyone's goals with 3D printing is different so at 3D Printing Pathways we aim to create a personalized plan to help you reach your goals.

About Me

I am a 3D printing expert who is passionate about education. I have had extensive experience working with various 3D printers. In the past, I even ran a small company that sold 3D printed objects. This experience allowed me to learn the ins and outs of these machines and how to create high-quality 3D printed objects.

In addition, I have taught various STEM subjects to students ranging from 5th grade through 12th. As a result, I have developed a deep understanding of how to incorporate 3D printing into the classroom to make it easy and accessible for students of all ages.

My professional background is in mechanical engineering, which gives me a unique perspective on the applications of 3D printing technology to the professional fields of engineering. I am dedicated to helping students and educators gain the skills and knowledge they need to use 3D printers effectively and prepare for the future of technology.
