RapidMade's 3D printing roots can be traced back to an 88-year-old patriarch who still works this - his birthday - and every day in 2D printing and box making. He taught us that starting a business was - and is - a path to a better life. And we learned that lesson at an early age. As children, we would play in the factory, sometimes doing odd jobs until age and experience allowed us to "graduate" to working on the various print and die-cutting machines. This was NOT additive manufacturing. The work could be hard, dirty, and monotonous.
It is a testament to Dan Unico that his wife, three of his four children, one son-in-law and one of his grandchildren (so far) has chosen manufacturing as a career. That is a legacy one can be proud of. Happy Birthday!
