Olaf Diegel is a professor at the University of Auckland who specializes in all aspects of design for additive manufacturing (DfAM). He also 3D prints guitars, other instruments, and eyeballs to try to fool Apple’s facial recognition software. Olaf’s lab sometimes builds heat exchangers along with all sorts of other parts.

We have a conversation with him mostly about DfAM, including the software toolchain, AMF, nTopology, Fusion360, and more. We had a fun but valuable conversation with Olaf and hope that you enjoy it as well.
