3D-PT is the 3D printing and design firm of Stan Baldwin.
3D-PT is also the girlfriend that Anakin Skywalker never got around to building for C3PO.
I’m a science teacher and person with Non-Verbal Learning Disorder (NLD), a learning disorder that is part of the Autism Spectrum.
I grew up in the aviation industry, where I have seen technology’s like laser cutting and CNC mills augment traditional metal crafting processes.
I have 6 years of teaching experience in places as diverse as the bush of Alaska, the high plains of Colorado, and urban Denver.
I became interested in 3D printing 2 years ago as I was studying app programming at Pickens Technical College. I just completed my certificate course in CAD, where I studies AutoCAD 2014, Solidworks, and TinkerCAD.
A year ago I bought my first 3D printer, the deplorable Makerbot 5th gen replicator. I have sense learned my lesson and updated to a Lulzbot Taz 5.
I started my company 3D-PT a year ago to 3D print items for people with disabilities. I specialize in Autism Spectrum and ADHD products.
In addition to 3D printing, I like to write blogs for 3Dprinterchat about current issues in 3D printings, as well as How-To blogs.

Being a “disabled” person (t4 para) I thank you for thinking about and doing something for disabled people. That’s a pretty nice and noble thing your doing. I can’t help but wonder how it came to you. It sounds like you advanced pretty fast with your 3d printer skills — starting a business the same year you bought your first 3d printer. But I’m sure your education in CAD was a major factor in that. I wish you an infinity of success! Keep up the great work!
I was diagnosed in High School with ASD (though I’ve know sense 3d grade). The idea for a business came from a friend / advocate who got some of the first fidgets I printed. She connected me with a local store that supports ASD, and the idea for a business grew from there. I sell my own fidgets at fairs, and now I’m looking at pivoting into 3D home printing. I got into CAD as I was about to leave teaching. It turns out that now I do more teaching STEM and 3D printing, so CAD and 3D printing is keeping me in education.
