Chip Bobbert is the Digital Fabrication Architect and manager of Duke University's four specialty labs--the Multimedia Project Studio and three CoLab Studio locations.  In this role, he has developed and built one of the largest 3D printing focused labs in higher education.  This service now completes more than 39,000 jobs annually while serving over 2,000 unique users.  His lab was among the first to explore scale problems related to the integration of digital fabrication at institutional levels, creating a use-case template other universities now follow.  His latest projects focus on the launch of a medical and research-class additive manufacturing center and the development of a community, curation and asset management system as a university service.  Passionate about innovation and education, he is a frequent speaker, collaborator, commenter, and evangelist on the integration of maker and additive technologies into educational and research ecosystem.
