“When I saw the first Stealth Key, a couple of years ago, I was fully convinced by the idea and knew this would become the next disruptive type of a mass production device: 1000´s of complex and individually manufactured parts – ideal for Additive Technologies with an enormous growth potential. I´m proud to get the opportunity of becoming part of the entrepreneurial Team”.

Victor does not really exist. He is a pseudonym for several writers in the 3D Printing Media Network team. As a pseudonym, Victor has also had a fascinating made-up life story, living as a digital (and virtual) nomad to cover the global AM industry. He has always worked extra-hard whenever he was needed to create unique content. However, lately, as our editorial team has grown, he is mostly taking care of publishing press releases.
