In this episode…
The invention process is a very interesting and fulfilling process for any inventor. It involves a number of steps, which ultimately lead to a finished product meant to solve a certain need in the market for its target users.
The thought of drawing a design for a new product, and having it transformed into a 3D print, is exciting. For some, it makes the process of invention easier since the inventor can see the possibilities for the final version of the product before it gets manufactured.
In this episode of the Innovations and Breakthroughs Podcast, Rich Goldstein talks with Kenneth Tyler, the Founder of Continuous Composites, about his innovations in 3D printing and how he leverages the power of patents. They also talk about Kenneth’s transition from a high-end carpenter to inventing and working with 3D printing, the value of patents, and how Kenneth started investing in similar companies.
