David Hartmann is a German born New Zealander, where he still lives today. His first job was to spend 17 years at Bayer, getting deep in the materials world, which triggered his passion for 3d printing. Outside of tech, he is raising 2 kids in New Zealand, which he notes is a great place to do so. He also travels a lot, which he loves, and mentioned that traditional cooking for New Zealand is something that doesn’t happen often, and his cooking with hot stones under the earth.
In 2014, David took a sabbatical from his Corporate job. He started to dig into 3d printing, and ended up meeting the founder of Polymer. They started talking about why the industry hadn’t accomplished much of the things they had hoped, and they realized that software was generally, the answer.
