25: 3D Printing Maven Annie Shaw of 3D Systems/Cubify on New Frontiers & Job Interview Questions Everyone Should Ask

Annie Shaw

Today we meet Annie Shaw, a 3D printing fashion pioneer who is the creative director for 3D Systems and Cubify. It’s an exciting time for 3D printing in the fashion landscape, as I discover in talking to Annie, who’s a risk taker with a full steam ahead attitude that’s led her into many adventures (listen to hear her high-fashion drama in Paris trying to wrangle designer Iris Van Herpen’s exotic 3D printed apparel from French customs officials in time for a Paris Fashion Week show). For entrepreneurs looking to bring 3D printing into their businesses, Annie’s a goldmine of inspiration, but she’s also brimming with helpful career and life advice that’s useful and inspiring no matter your industry.

She also spends a few minutes diving into a subject I personally think needs more hype: the sustainability side of the 3D printing conversation.

But wait, there’s more below!
