Charles Mire

Structur3D Printing
Kitchener, Canada Area
Charles began his career in Texas, where he worked as a backend Unix software developer for about 10 years before deciding to switch tracks to become a scientist. He obtained a MSc in applied physics from the University of Texas at Dallas, where he gained early printing experience using a nano-deposition system for carbon nanotube dispersions. He later went on to complete a Ph.D in chemistry at the University of Wollongong in Australia, where he specialized in 3D printing conducting polymer and biopolymer materials. At the time, desktop 3D printers were not widely available, so Charles built a custom system based on a Sherline CNC. After completing his PhD, his family immigrated to Canada in the Kitchener-Waterloo area. He connected to the local startup scene and began learning about entrepreneurship. After a few years of extensive networking and working at a couple of local startup companies, he took the plunge and launched Structur3D Printing in 2013.
