this is god damn amazing
As an E2 visa holder for many yrs...it seems a little silly to suggest this route. It is an investment visa usually in the range of 100K USD and over. I guess the premise is your parents would set you up in a business after graduation? But keep in mind that business also needs to be successful come renewal time.
How can one use 3D skills outside of the industry? In fact, these skills can be applied in other ways, especially when it comes to 3D printing which is now more user-friendly than ever. Kevin Miree, Hobgoblin-3D’s Managing Director has recently joined Envision to talk about his job and his path might get you interested.
Here is a small piece of the interview:
3D printers are an example of the transition from Industrial Revolution to Industry 4.0.
We are seeing printers become condensed to the point where they can be installed in homes or small studios, which allows for more freedom for small teams to get ideas out, designing, prototyping and providing solutions. But it’s not just 3D printing – we have lots of digital solutions coming through, for example social media, that allow for businesses to grow a lot more rapidly than what was previously achievable.
For three graduates to come straight from having a degree to manufacturing, designing, prototyping and marketing on minimal capital is pretty remarkable.”
Where other manufacturers might be using large-scale industries and manufacturing, we’ve condensed that down using 3D printers, where the end-user can download the blueprints at home.
We create our products using a digital design, which we then upload and sell to people around the world. It has allowed for three graduates to trade globally from the get-go, because we provide a service that allows people to find what they need, download, and print at almost a click of a button.
