Josh Mook’s Story is a 3D-Printing and American Manufacturing Success Story | #MFGDay17 @mfgday
Somehow Josh Mook’s story reads like a quintessentially American one: as a 15-year-old kid he couldn’t drive but was learning to fly (someone had to drive him to his weekend lessons). After college he progressed through the ranks at various GE divisions, being awarded a GE Aviation young engineer award and eventually being offered an opportunity to work on a team pioneering additive manufacturing techniques to fabricate fuel nozzles for jet engine designs. From a love of flying to 3D-printing:
Josh Mook, Engineering Manager of Additive Technologies at GE Aviation, has always been interested in the mechanics behind the world. That explains why he’s so passionate about Additive Manufacturing, a 3D printing process that creates complex parts, slice by slice, from a detailed digital design. With additive technology, Josh is reimagining the future of industrial design.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
