Jean-Maxime Marleau is a tinkerer, we learn when we meet over a video call. As an electro-mechanic, the Quebecker built and operated his own 3D printers before his hobby landed him a job as 'additive manufacturing specialist' with a leading 3D printing company. "I like to make things whenever there's time, pushing the limits of what can be done with 3D printing," he says. "This helps when I talk to our clients, because most things they have questions about, I have on-hand experience with."
Lifting the camera for a tour of the house, Marleau enthuses about various printed objects lying about. They range from ornate piggy-banks and a deer-shaped jewelry rack (with oversized antlers to support the jewelry) to super refined statues of Dark Souls characters, Monster Hunter weaponry (scaled, don't worry), and much, much more. "The Dark Souls statue my wife painted," he says, showing me the intricate details on a beautiful, small statue. "She was an artist who mostly worked digitally, but could also handle paints well, as you can see. Everything I can't do, she could."
