Janne Kyttanen pioneered 3D design and printing for consumer products with the design studio, Freedom of Creation, that he founded in 2000. The Macedonia Space Divider was designed to create the most flexibility and freedom when dividing interior and exterior spaces, and is part of Kyttanen's much larger 3D printed home decor and fashion collections available for purchase on Cubify, 3D Systems consumer marketplace. Today, Kyttanen continues to shape the future of consumer 3D printing as Creative Director for 3D Systems, and empowers consumers with their own creativity to personalize the things they wear and homes they live in with customizable 3D printed collections on Cubify.

Scott Summit tapped 3D printing's potential to bring more humanity to people with life-altering health conditions like traumatic limb loss. Taking advantage of the freedom of complexity that 3D printing allows for, Summit founded Bespoke Innovations in 2009 with the mission to empower individuals to personalize prosthetics and braces with style and comfort. Summit's Bespoke Prosthetics are paving the way for patient-specific medical solutions that enhance function as well as physical and emotional comfort. Today, Summit continues to develop new applications for 3D design and printing as Senior Director, Functional Design for 3D Systems.
