Zach Hoeken Smith

Executive Director of the RepRap Research Foundation

Zach Hoeken likes to dream big, fail big, and win big. His true passion in life is acting as a catalyst and helping others do amazing things.

Whether he’s working on open source micro controllers, robot controller software, object sharing websites, or 3D printers there is one central purpose: to help other people help themselves create an awesome world to live in. That’s why he built Makerbot.

He hopes that someday we can create a world that surpasses even the wildest futures portrayed in science fiction. He thinks the universe is and will continue to be completely rad.
