Guest Spotlight: Todd Blatt
Todd Blatt is a mechanical engineer, artist, and professional maker. He has been 3d modeling since 1997 and loves 3D printers and laser cutters. Todd was recruited as a founding member of a highly visible interdisciplinary design department within MakerBot to create flagship designs that showcase the full capabilities of The Replicator 3D printer. He spent 2012 working as a 3d designer and as the principal liaison with the MakerBot marketing department, responsible for integrating 3D design and printing in all marketing efforts.
Todd founded Custom 3D Stuff, an object creation firm. They offer consulting, 3D modeling, and design services as well as sell custom 3D printed objects, including movie props, jewelry, replicas, new products, and engineering prototypes. He especially likes to focus on 3d designs which are difficult to create with other methods aside from 3D printing. AutoCAD and MeshMixer are his software packages of choice.
