Pioneering Rapid Prototyping

In 2003 Introduced Rapid Prototyping (RP) into the production model making process at one of Europe's largest and oldest jewellery companies and platinum casting companies. trained by the top engineers in Formula 1 and introduced RP into the production process and was given special statues by British engineering, in increasing the layer detail of a 3D Systems Viper Si2 industrial SLA rapid prototyping machine used primarily in Aviation, Medical, F1 and Automotive design, seeing improvements throughout when the devices features where upgraded from that of a £100K at the time to that of a £1m device. using my knowledge of design and liquid thermal dynamics in platinum casting producing the fundamentals collection today seen as design classics and exported to 120 countries for two decades.

Technical Author

"I was commissioned by Peter Taylor MBE the director of training at the Goldsmith's Company, two papers which where combined to demystify the technical jargon associated with the 3D industry, and give an overview to the traditional industry as it looked at investing in new technology, this help lead to the establishment of the Goldsmiths Centre a training college for the trade which I hold a trusted supplier statues."

The Goldsmiths' Company, is one of the first Six Great Livery Companies that founded the City of London and received its first Royal Charter in 1327 giving it the right to enforce good authority, to uphold the Silver and Gold standards.

Jan Miynarcik, 3D printing CAD technician at Imakr . 2014

John is the 3D Printing Specialist at LGS where he is in charge among other things the service, maintenance and training for the 3D systems Projet 660 pro at the iMakr Ltd shop.

His special attention, precision, responsible manner, know-how and willingness to always do what was required to ensure the smooth running of the 3D printing service could be relied up, for me John really is a 3D printing GURU..

Supported charity

As a former student of the Bloomfield's learning centre at Guys hospital the worlds first dedicated centre for children with learning disabilities which first found the link with the home environment.

I support there continued work in providing child development for children from disadvantaged families, children with support needs can fall through the net as they become frustrated and alienated by school if they do not receive their assessment in time, schools do not send students this can be due to availability and funding issues and families from disadvantaged families are often worst affected as they can not afford the assessment from the specialist teachers to receive the learning support required.

As a child I had hearing tests at Bloomfields learning centre at GUY's hospital in London and was also filmed by LWT Friday night show drawing geometry on the the BBC Micro the first computer to be used in a primary school kept at the BFI television archive. the hearing tests helped increased understanding of the link between the written word and spoken sound which eventually lead to the tools that we have today which include Phonic Books link.
