3DPOD Episode 70, 3D Printing in China: Gordon Styles, Star Rapid Founder

Share this Article

Gordon Styles is a true 3D printing pioneer. He bought a stereolithography machine very early and built the UK’s biggest service bureau off of it. After selling said business, he moved to China to start Star Rapid, a leading 3D printing and low-volume manufacturing service. Gordon tells about the very early days of the 3D printing industry. He also discusses entrepreneurship, building a business, marketing, doing business in China, 3D printing, CNC and many other subjects. Gordon is very frank and has a lot of really sage advice, as well as some war stories. We really liked talking to Gordon and hope that you enjoy listening to him, as well.
