Last year, Javier Rivera received his BA in Studio Art from Florida State University. As an undergraduate, he developed an interest in, and an aptitude for, 3D modeling and when given the opportunity he took on an internship at the Facility for Arts Research assisting our resident MMAP technician, Windham Graves. FAR provided Javier with his first hands-on experience with 3D printing.
After graduating, Javier returned to south Florida and quickly landed a paid internship at the Miami-based additive manufacturing company 3D Chimera. At 3D Chimera Javier’s primary duty is assisting with in-house 3D printing projects. He also prepares machines for resell and services 3D printers to ensure maximum efficiency for 3D Chimera’s clients.
