3D Systems, Rock Hill, South Carolina, USA, has appointed Dr Brent Stucker to the newly created role of Chief Scientist. Previously employed by Ansys, Inc, a leader in engineering software solutions, Dr Stucker served as Director of Additive Manufacturing. He joined Ansys following its acquisition of 3DSIM in 2017, a software simulation company that he co-founded and led as CEO. 3DSIM was the first AM simulation company and a pioneer in the use of simulation for process control and optimisation of AM.

Dr Stucker’s career has ranged from the development of advanced materials and Additive Manufacturing technologies, spanning healthcare, industrial and biomedical markets, to software for process control and simulation. He has published more than 200 peer-reviewed journal articles, while co-authoring a leading textbook Additive Manufacturing Technologies, which is used in over 600 universities worldwide, with over five million copies sold or downloaded since first publication.

In addition to his personal achievements, Dr Stucker was the founding chairman of the international standards committee for Additive Manufacturing (ASTM-F42) and served on the board of ASTM. He is the recipient of numerous industry awards and is actively involved with major government and private agencies focused on the industrialisation and expansion of AM.

Dr Jeffrey Graves, president and CEO of 3D Systems, commented, “Brent is a rare individual whose intellect, experiences, and technology leadership skills offer a tremendous benefit to a company driven by innovation such as ours. Having focussed his distinguished career on Additive Manufacturing, he will be a key leader for us, helping to not only introduce new technologies, but to understand and address the full spectrum of needs that our customers have as they rapidly move AM into full-scale production environments.”

“With Brent now joining Dr David Leigh, our Chief Technology Officer for Additive Manufacturing, as key members of our leadership team, 3D Systems will continue to champion efforts that not only benefit 3D Systems, but also advance the entire additive industry.”
