3DPOD Episode 29: Phil Reeves, 3D Printing Consultant

Share this Article

Phil Reeves is a very knowledgeable 3D printing consultant with strong opinions. He’s spent over 25 years working in additive manufacturing and, in that time, has conducted many significant, groundbreaking projects in the space. Reeves has done work on data, characterizing new 3D printing materials, industrializing new technologies, and bringing new tech to market. He helps companies understand the cost of additive and implement it in a coherent way. Previously, Reeves has worked for customers like BP, Caterpillar, IBM, Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier, GE Aviation, Bentley, BMW, Jaguar Landrover, Redbull Technology, Nike and LVMH.

We enjoyed talking to Reeves and he gave us well thought through crisp answers to our questions. Max and I discussed COVID, 3D printing implementation, the limitations of the technology, comparing photopolymers with thermoplastics, and a new exciting drop-on-demand/mix-on-demand 3D printing technology. We’ve been really lucky to have such really good guests so far and this one was another one that we hope you can enjoy as well!

Previously we spoke to HP’s Ramon Pastor & Terry Wohlers, had a discussion about decentralized manufacturing, got to talk to Materialise CEO Fried VancraenEOS CEO Marie Langer, Ty Pollak from Open Additive, and have had conversations about the ethics of 3D printing3D printing for COVID, and about handheld scanning.
