Mark Chester

I am an Autodesk Certified Instructor specialising in product design. PrintCity provides an incredible environment for innovation and development. The amazing facilities enable the freedom to explore, experiment, fail and develop through a hands-on approach to using industry standard equipment.

It is fascinating to gain insights into how Industry 4.0 is disrupting other students’ sectors and I’ve learnt, and continue to learn, a great deal from my fellow course mates. There’s a real buzz around the course which I haven’t felt elsewhere – everyone has so much potential.

At PrintCity you never know what opportunities will come through the door. Having access to live projects with major organisations is invaluable and will hopefully lead to exciting career opportunities in the future.

Industry 4.0 is causing massive disruption across multiple sectors. I want to be at the forefront of this new wave of technological advancement by developing new and innovative products through the application of cutting-edge processes. My ambition is to design and disrupt, regardless of which industry I work within.

The most important lesson I’ve learned is to fail fast and fail often. In a short period of time, I’ve developed a range of skills in new areas such as generative design, 3D scanning and additive manufacturing processes, helping me to stand out among other graduates entering industry.
