Shapeways: What is Freedom of Creation?
Janne Kyttanen: A pioneering design company busy with a new industrial revolution
Shapeways: How did you get into 3D printing?
Janne Kyttanen:I saw it on some fair in the mid 90′s. I had my first computer when I was 8 years old and have been pretty much counting polygons ever since. When I saw the first 3D printer, I immediately saw every object around me in wireframe and realized where this whole thing was going to go. I got quite obsessed with it quite early on and skipped making products by other means. For me it was so clear, that I didn,t see any point making anything by hand anymore.
Shapeways: What kind of products do you make?
Janne Kyttanen: Everyday something new and the list is very long. It can range from exclusive furniture to surgical guides to Iphone covers to buttons to whatnot.
