3rd Person Bio (for conferences, etc.)
Nick is the founder of Plethora - a rapid manufacturing service with tools that let you design for manufacturability inside your CAD software, and then let you make them using a flexible manufacturing system.
Previously, Nick started CloudFab: the world's first manufacturing-as-a-service API, and also HackPittsburgh: a collective workshop for the makers of Pittsburgh.
Nick's mission is to make developing hardware as easy software through better tools. He also organizes the SF Hardware Startup Meetup and is heavily involved in building the hardware movement broadly.
