The Mechanical Engineering Team

David Nguyen:

I studied mechanical engineering in Germany and started working as a design engineer. I love product design, furniture design and am super passionate about 3D printing and all types of digital manufacturing. In 2013 I decided to leave Germany, and I have been living and working abroad ever since. It has been a very fulfilling experience. I gladly embraced all the challenges that came with it and am happy to have landed in Amsterdam at 3D Hubs where I can put all my skills and expertise to work in a growing company throwing the world of manufacturing upside down.
I see myself as the link between the Sales Team and all the amazing technology accessible via the worldwide network of our manufacturing partners. I check out 3D files and technical drawings from clients from all the different industries from automotive, aerospace to medical companies, and small design studios.
One of the most interesting parts of my job is to deep dive into our clients projects and applications to fully understand how we can take full advantage of manufacturing technology. Working at 3D Hubs is a great experience because the team is just amazing. We are a bunch of thinkers, designers, creators and makers and even the smallest idea will be listened to as we want 3D Hubs to stand out in the crowd.

Dillan Patel:

I’m a Mechanical Engineer who has a passion for product design and manufacturing. I left New Zealand for some adventure and ended up at 3D Hubs!
A typical day for me is to cycle to work, arrive, and begin to assist the sales team to evaluate parts and provide technical support to the client. I love to be working with and learning from engineers from a range of disciplines - I’m able to investigate why they made their parts, these discussions have turbo charged my passion for manufacturing! What’s even more satisfying is having seasoned designers listen to your advice and are delighted when they receive a perfectly functioning part.
The best part of working at 3D Hubs is the people - I can talk to anyone and learn about what they’re doing, get help with my projects or just spin a good yarn by the bar. What’s better is that everyone leaves their ego at the door and all are open to any ideas that can improve the business or themselves. I love this supportive honest, friendly, non-political culture!
