    4 years of experience in rapid prototyping (3D printing ) with SLS, FDM, SLA technologies, and mass manufacturing with CNC machines.

     

    In 2020, I launched my first mass-produced product. Entirely designed, developed and packed in-house and retailed under ©AzSabers.

  • the Alcatraz family.

    Alcatraz Dynamics is officially registered as my company. My field of work covers many areas, for some I've created sub-divisions.

    - AzDynamics is the parent company covering general design works.

    - AzSabers covers the design, manufacturing and marketing of sabers.

    - Alcatraz Longboards combines design, manufacturing, hand crafting and marketing of longboards.

    A fun little project, maybe a reality, one day ? ;)
