Leading the way in connectivity inside 3D-printed components

Fiona Lambert, SELA Cohort 2016

Last week, SELA received a talk from Mark Cocking. Mark is from the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC), which is owned by the University of Sheffield, and has developed a new method of 3D-printing, called THREAD. 

Mark shared his facinating career in industry leading to his arrival at the AMRC, and how he decided to pursue engineering. From a young age it was apparent that he was a practical problem solver and was destined to become an engineer: at age seven he designed a guinea pig exerciser for his neighbour’s overweight pets!
