Last week, TriMech's 3D printer team gathered in the Marlborough, MA office for a week full of team building and training activities. Our territory reps and additive manufacturing application engineers traveled in from all over the east coast to bond over the one thing we all have in common - our love for 3D printing technology and providing our clients with the best engineering solutions. This is what our week looked like:
As one of Stratasys' Diamond Partners, our team is required to take a series of in-person and online training courses and obtain certain certifications. We pride ourselves in staying up-to-date with Stratasys 3D printing technologies, from the latest FDM and PolyJet machines to the newest materials. With a growing team, this gave everyone the opportunity to learn how to match the best engineering solutions with our client's unique needs and applications.
Red Sox Baseball:
After two days of 3D printer training, we were off to Fenway Park to watch the Red Sox beat the Blue Jays 5-1. We sat across from the Green Monster with a perfect view of first base. For some of us, the highlight of the night was getting a private tour of the stadium; for others, the highlight was getting a stadium hotdog and cold beer. At the end of the night, we all enjoyed bonding as a team.

Desktop Metal Training:
One of the most exciting activities of the week was getting an exclusive tour of the Desktop Metal headquarters. We met various members of the Desktop Metal team including Co-founder and Chief Technology Officer, Jonah Myerberg; Co-founder and VP of Software and Development, Rick Chin; VP of Business Development, Tuan Tranpham; and VP of Research and Development, Dr. Animesh Bose.
We also had the opportunity to see the evolution of the Studio System, from the most beginning prototype phase to the beta product. Lead Application Engineer, Cory Haas, walked through the metal 3D printing process. He highlighted the process from start to finish, from printing green parts on the Studio System, to removing plastic binder on the Debinder, to sintering parts on the Furnace and removing support material by hand. All-in-all, it was a great look at the Studio System aimed to be released Fall 2017.

For the final hoorah, the Desktop Metal and 3D printer team went bowling at Kings Dining and Entertainment. Here, we shared stories about the our experiences in the industry and had some friendly competition knocking down pins. Congratulations to TriMech's David Stockbower, who walked away as Bowling Champion.
To say the least, we had a successful week of team bonding and getting to learn more about Stratasys and Desktop Metal printers. And we couldn't be more excited to see what these technologies have in store for our clients!
