Rob Carlson is coming on board at The 3D Printing Store, as the retail 3D printing company welcomes him as Principal, Chief Financial and Business Development Officer.

The company currently has four Colorado locations already up and running, and Carlson will be involved in further expansion, working on ‘accelerating The 3D Printing Store’s successful business model.’

With a strong background in finance and engineering, Carlson brings unique experience and education to the table that is a perfect fit with the 3D printing industry. Holding a BS in Mechanical Engineering from the Colorado School of Mines, and an MBA from the University Of Chicago Booth School of Business, Carlson is a registered Professional Engineer in the State of Colorado.

Previously Carlson served as CFO of CoorsTek, Inc, a global manufacturing company in the advanced materials space. He worked with United Airlines during and after their Chapter 11 filing and he also has experience working as a mechanical engineer.

logo“The 3D Printing Store is uniquely positioned to help established manufacturing companies, small businesses, and consumers realize the powerful potential of additive manufacturing,” said Rob Carlson. “I am excited to join a true pioneering team as we begin this next industrial revolution.”

At The 3D Printing Store, they are indeed proponents of ‘this next industrial revolution,’ with a commitment to the continued learning and sharing of new elements of design in combination with 3D printing. They take community involvement very seriously, as well as the encouraging of students and STEM education, reaching out to employ interns at their locations, and pointing out that ‘they are the future of 3D printing.’

  • Consumers — offering them the chance to browse in the store and buy 3D printed items there, or customize CAD files for the products themselves, and 3D print them.
  • Hobbyists, who are encouraged to come into the store and ‘run designs,’ with The 3D Printing Store offering them the option of scheduling times to work on more complex projects.
  • Professionals are invited by The 3D Printing Store to come in and get help in creating and producing prototypes, and can even communicate by email to begin and complete 3D design and printing projects.

“We are very excited to have Rob join our team. He brings high-level experience in both the technical and business aspects of advanced manufacturing. Rob continues our vision of how 3D printing will change our world,” said Debra Wilcox, co-founder of the 3D Printing Store.

If you want to get a feel for the creative, fun atmosphere this company puts forward in demonstrating their motto that they want you to ‘bring your ideas to life,’ just check out their humorous, lighthearted series of videos, with 3D printed figures engaged in playing rock, paper, scissors; having a staring contest; and then there is ‘Dennis in the Wilderness.’

The 3D Printing Store puts forth a very likable and sincere personality for their brand. We look forward to reporting more on their progress and activity, as they welcome Carlson to their team and continue expansion — and success.
