Metal Printing

metal printing

The Metal X 3D printer creates fully functional, real metal parts –prototypes and end-use parts alike – with capabilities that allow for complex geometric designs that can’t be machined. Combined with post-processing tools such as mills, welding, and drills, we can integrate precision metal into your prototyping process.

3D Printing

3d printing

3D printing allows for the creation of parts that couldn’t be made by any other means. Produce a cost-efficient model that creates a real visualization of the size and feel of your product. This is especially useful for early concept user testing as it ensures a more refined finished product.

Joel Koscielski

Joel Koscielski

Senior Manager, Design & Fabrication

Within the role of Senior Manager of Design and Fabrication, Joel manages a cross-functional team to collaborate with clients to overcome challenges through the ideation, formal design, evaluation, and prototype manufacturing stages along the prototyping journey. Joel brings a decade of experience within the medical device development space within a wide range of engineering and manufacturing positions. With a strong theoretical and hands-on approach, Joel ensures products delivered by the team effectively meet our client’s unique needs, including supporting drawings, design evaluation reports, or assembly/maintenance manuals. Not afraid to get his hands dirty, operating the full range of shop equipment to get things done will help ensure there are always enough hands to get things done on time and to client specifications.  He is passionate about out-of-the-box thinking, continuous improvement, and building a world-class team to help the Ottawa of tomorrow be the best that it can be.

When Joel is not working in the Lab, he dedicates his time to mentoring the youth of tomorrow through educational robotics programs, both as a volunteer at local events and as a mentor.  This dedication even resulted in the founding of a new non-profit, Ottawa Community Education Robotics Association (OCERA), to help bring more STEM education to youth across the city. In the gaps between this you’ll find him cooking up a storm or using his own 3D printer to improve his house in any way he can find.
