Developing Skills Required for the Future of Manufacturing
Andrew has contributed to an article Featured on the Create Education Project Website
“I was first introduced to 3D Printing some 27 years ago. As an artist, its been interesting to see how few people with arts backgrounds are in the 3D Printing industry. Creativity and design thinking come easily to me as an artist and this ability has enabled me to help solve many applications for engineers and OEMs on their use of 3D Printing. I’m passionate to promote STEAM education, as Art is just as important as any other subject. The youth in the UK are the Designers, Engineers and Artists of the future and we need to give them access to the amazing tool that is 3D Printing and the opportunities that this presents across all sectors of industry.” Andrew Allshorn – Owner of AT 3D-Squared LTD, Vice President of AMUG and CREATE Education Ambassador
