Andreas Bastian is a designer, engineer, and artist who develops and applies cutting edge 3D printing technologies. By being a 3D printing research scientist at Autodesk, he studies both novel and established additive manufacturing technologies and their role in the near future. 

He has conducted research in fused deposition modeling (FDM) technology as lead R&D engineer at Makerbot Industries and developed low-cost selective laser sintering technology (SLS) at both the Miller Lab for Microphysiological Systems and Advanced Materials and the Advanced Manufacturing Research Institute at Rice University. 

Andreas has been also deeply involved with the design of low cost 3D printed prosthetics since he began working with the open source e-NABLE Community in 2013. e-NABLE has thousands of volunteers around the globe work together to design, fabricate, and distribute low-cost 3D printed prosthetic devices to children born with congenital upper limb differences.
