Al Siblani is a 3D printing pioneer who got his start over 19 years ago. He worked with layered object manufacturing—the paper, and laser technology—which is a leitmotiv of our podcast and was exceedingly problematic at the time. Subsequently, Siblani founded EnvisionTEC, whose digital light processing (DLP) technology has been a major player in manufacturing, especially for jewelry casts, hearing aids, and dental applications.

We speak to Siblani about his history in 3D printing and how he managed to found his firm. He shares some war stories with us and talks about the current state of EnvisionTEC and the market. He also expresses what he wants to do in the future and how he perceives the market. EnvisionTEC’s development from a one-technology company to one that deploys various different technologies in many markets makes it a versatile, independently held firm. Siblani relays the potential for one particular area, bioprinting specifically. He also talks about the position that being an employee-held company gives the firm and how he sees his independence in the future. All in all, a great story for us and hopefully for you as well. Tell us what you thought of this episode and keep up your suggestions!
