My name is Ian and I'm a full-time software engineer at Ultimaker. Ultimaker is a world leader in 3D printing, and I have the privilege of working on Cura, our free, open-source slicing software.

My work at Ultimaker lets me indulge a lot of my interests in 3D graphics, product design, user-experience design, and 3D modeling. I started working at Ultimaker in January 2018, after finishing my MSc in Design for Interaction at TU Delft, in December 2017. For my thesis I worked for ManoMetric, researching, designing, and eventually prototyping custom-made CAD software for the orthotics industry.

In my free time I like to ride and work on my race bike, play and mod video games, and tinker. I’m also interested in all things futuristic (specifically artificial intelligence), so between that and 3D printing, Westworld is obviously my favorite TV show these days.
