Website Rapid Liquid Print
Rapid Liquid Print (RLP) is an exciting startup commercializing a new 3D printing method developed at MIT. This new method brings the advantage of 3D printing to industrial grade elastomers. By eliminating many constraints of traditional 3D printing, RLP can rapidly produce large-scale, stretchable products in minutes with negligible post processing. The RLP process delivers low-cost products for the medical, apparel, home goods, aviation, marine, and automotive industries. We are currently developing the next generation of RLP printers, improving machine, software, and material capabilities, as well as designing the overarching system for high volume production.
If you are a talented mechanical engineer, machine expert, or autodidact-polymath excited to design, build, operate, and iterate on new forms of 3d printing, we want you as a Mechanical Systems Engineer.
This individual will work on the development of and operate the RLP printing system. They will be working closely with the team to develop and implement new features, increase robustness, and meet the needs of clients. They will be responsible for designing and running experiments, sourcing materials, and building relationships with key suppliers/partners. The cross disciplinary nature of 3D printing requires that this individual be able to learn quickly, pivot effortlessly, and work closely with other team members, learning the fundamentals of software, materials, and mechanical systems from each other as we integrate a full stack process. The individual will need to be able to juggle both work for hire and rapid experimentation. They will need to know when to focus in and when to paint with a broad brush.
