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 as 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 full 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 seeking a part time opportunity to work as a Mechanical Engineer where I could apply my knowledge and experience to resolve your next design obstacle.
