He is hands-on in the manufacturing process from phase one to slicing, to finishing. He is expressive on the versatility of 3D printing for engineers: “Us mechanical engineers are the people that design your gears, the swivel in a chair, we figure out how to make things move!”
Jason Frank fell in love with all things 3D when he was three years old while watching his father play Doom on the computer. It wasn’t until college that he realized that 3D art was something he was truly passionate in learning and excelling in. “Being the 3D artist for Tangible Creative is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get. No two projects are alike because I’m constantly working on something new and interesting. When you put your heart and soul into a project alongside other people that do the same, it’s easy to call them family.” Jason is 3D and digital animation artist from New Jersey.
