Welcome to Diffusion 3D! My name is Fadel Muci. I was born and raised in Venezuela, and I'm currently a proud U.S permanent resident. I graduated with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering, and a minor in Technological Entrepreneurship from the University of Maryland, College Park.
During my time at UMD, I specialized in rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing. This course first began with the opportunity to work as a Mechanical Engineer at M3D, where we raised $3.4 Million, making it the most funded 3D printer in Kickstarter's history. After my time there, I decided to dedicate my efforts to UMD's rapid prototyping facilities, TerrapinWorks, where I worked full time as a Senior Lab Manager.
I decided to move out west, and began an M.S in Mechanical Engineering - Product Development at the University of Southern California. I work part-time at USC's new Center for Advanced Manufacturing (CAM), as principal mechanical engineer. CAM is an Industry 4.0 facility where we have state of the art manufacturing and production systems.
I use these tools to exercise my creativity by testing product design challenges and fabrication techniques. Here, I have the opportunity to operate and maintain a variety of 3D printers, and robotic arms. I collaborate with researchers and corporate clients, and consult them on their prototyping and design issues. Likewise, I am conducting research into how to integrate these innovative systems into production, as well as a corporate creative environments that foments prototyping. If I'm not at the center, you'll likely find me exercising with my companion, Mikoh!
I am currently working as a manufacturing engineering graduate intern at Boeing. At Boeing I'm actively participating in the efforts to industrialize additive manufacturing. I'm seeking for a full-time opportunity to begin early 2018.
