He is a named inventor on 85 United States patents, plus numerous other patents around the world in the fields of ion optics and 3D printing.

Prior to founding 3D Systems, Chuck served six years as vice president of engineering at UVP, Inc. in San Gabriel, California, a systems manufacturing company. Before that, he spent 10 years as an engineering manager at DuPont’s Photo Products Division, concentrating on the development of analytical equipment for chemists, including mass spectrometer and GC/MS systems. Earlier in his career he was a senior engineer at Bell & Howell. Chuck received a BS in engineering physics from the University of Colorado in 1961, an honorary Doctorate in Engineering from Loughborough University in the U.K. in 2005, and an honorary Doctorate in Science from the University of Colorado in 2016.
