Hurco VM10Ui 5 Axis Machining Center

About a month before graduating highschool in 2012 I saw a job posting at the University of Hawaii at Manoa student job database for a machine shop assistant. It's safe to say the shop supervisor was surprised to hear a highschool student call in for the job. Since then, I've been machining and designing products.

I founded Gtscientific in 2017 while pursuing my Masters of Science in Mechanical Engineering. It was during my first year in grad school I felt comfortable enough with CNCs to move up from 3020 and 6040 CNC routers and bought a Tormach PCNC440. Since then I've made numerous products and parts growing the business and skill sets along the way. Kickstarter has proved a reliable and helpful platform for designing quality products and keeping cash coming in to work on more useful products such as industrial tooling. My first rule when making products is it has to be something that I would use too.

Aside from machining jobs and Kickstarter projects I currently have 1 biomedical device in a clinical study at Kapiolani Hospital.

And like most of us, I do work a day job. I work for a small local firm that is primarily a defense contractor specializing in remote chemical detection systems. Rapid prototyping all day everyday!

Thank you for visiting my site! I hope my products may find some use or value in your life.
