John DiStefano (U Do It) is a Content Creator who was inspired by parents who were involved in crafts. His mother taught ceramic classes and his father was a woodworker. John started out at age two working with his dad’s hand tools. John had his first experience with electronics when he partially disassembled his father’s prized possession, which was a Marantz stereo receiver. By age five John was using the Sears Craftsman band-saw making Christmas ornaments out of 1/4″ plywood. John (pictured left) was later introduced to computers with a computer programming class offered at our local community college that put him on a career path in engineering. John later obtained a degree in Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from Drexel University.
Today John is a software engineer, a consultant, a designer, a craftsman / maker, an artist and a woodworker using any tool and technology to design and accomplish the task. John built his own CNC in 2007 and created many pieces with it such as this 15″ x 36″ Philadelphia Eagles logo proudly displayed at Garrett Redmond’s home bar.
John now owns an Original Prusa i3 Mk2s 3D printer and designs his own models in Autodesk’s Fusion360 CAD/CAM software and 3d Prints them. Here’s the same eagles logo 3d printed using MatterHackers #MHBuild series PLA filament.
John also co-hosts the Friday night’s 3D Printer Community Hangout on youtube where a panel of 3D Printing experts join in and chat about 3D Printing for 3 hours every other Friday. Here is one of the #F3DPCH videos that John hosted on his channel on April 20th, 2018.
