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.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
