Co-Founders Wendy and Steve didn’t let their lack of experience stop them from creating The HopBlast Company, instead they used their time to create an amazing prototype utilizing Sculpteo’s services. If you have an idea but no prototyping or 3D printing experience read this article and learn how these Co-Founders turned their idea into a company.
Can you tell me and our readers a bit more about what The HopBlast Company is?
Wendy: Sure. Steve and I home brew beers, and while home brewing we noticed that a lot of the oils that contain the hop aroma are lost in the process. So we decided to see if there was an enclosure for the hops that could be clipped on the side of the beer glass; we wanted an enclosure that hovered over the liquid so the hops can add to the aroma of the beer. We searched but couldn’t find one, and that’s when we decided to make one, even through neither of us had any product design or 3D modeling or 3D printing experience.
