3DPOD Episode 33: Alexander Oster, Director of Additive Manufacturing at Autodesk

Share this Article

I’ve known Alexander Oster a long time now. He joined FIT at 16 to work on making a printer and later writing code for the leading service bureau. This eventually resulted in one of the first online price quoting tools. He then wrote one of the first software packages for creating lattices. This effort, in turn, morphed into Netfabb which was later sold to Autodesk and is now a part of Fusion 360.

Now, Oster is the Director Additive Manufacturing at Autodesk. He’s also the Chairman of the Technical Working Group at the 3MF Consortium. He talked to us about 3MF and what it brings to the table, as well as how adoption is faring. He also spoke about the future of file types and workflow in printing. He also spoke about Fusion 360 and what this tool brings to the ecosystem. Most importantly, Oster dove into some 3D printing history, outlining his path and that of Netfabb. Max and I both really enjoyed this story and how it dovetails with the maturing of 3D printing. We hope that you enjoy this episode, as well.
