 3DP Equipment Engineers are experts at the operation and troubleshooting of 3DP Equipment. They work directly with customers and internal groups to keep their 3D printing operations up and running at peak efficiency. While troubleshooting, diagnosing and resolving 3D printing equipment issues, 3DP Equipment Engineers install new systems/hardware, perform software and firmware updates, transfer technical knowledge to end users and escalate unresolved issues as needed. A 3DP Equipment Engineer is a customer trusted person who drives an important segment of the technical interactions and builds a long-term relationship with the customer operations team. The role also supports Research and Development teams by providing laboratory based support as an ‘expert-user’ of various 3D printing platforms – maintaining and operating printers to help define optimum settings for new materials. They also work closely with Equipment Product Development to define new product profiles and validate new equipment designs.
