A short while ago, I had the pleasure of visiting Fathom, a remarkable product development house and Stratasys reseller based in Oakland California.  Its state-of-the-art studio and workshop are situated right on the San Francisco Bay, just meters from the water in the very trendy Jack London Square.

Participants in the Digital ABS workshop – note the 3D printed skateboard on the table!

I was officially at Fathom to help kick-off a workshop for some of its  leading product design customers. The Digital ABS workshop is aimed at helping designers and engineers from some of America’s leading companies learn more about the incredible prototyping capabilities of the Objet Connex multi-material 3D Printers.  In particular, we were focusing on the Digital ABS material, the tough yet smooth-surfaced PolyJet material that’s perfect for Fit, Form and Functional prototyping requirements.

In between the workshop sessions, we also managed to take some time out to interview Fathom Principal, Michelle Mihevc, who was able to show us the studio, the studio’s incredible range of Stratasys 3D Printers and some of the unique parts they’re printing on Stratasys systems. See below the video I shot on my smart phone – a tad lengthy, but I’m hoping you’ll agree it was 8 minutes well spent!
