In 2014, Adi Pandzic and two friends from the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering Sarajevo, Bosnia, and Herzegovina started the CGPdesign team. The team’s goal was to teach Bosnian students how to use CAD software such as solidworks, AutoCAD, and Catia. Soon after, Pandzic began conducting free 3D printing workshops months. Pandzic and the CGPdesign team have so far taught thousands of university students to use both CAD software and 3D printing technology.
“We are now the most famous team in the country, doing all of that and helping people get started using the technology,” Pandzic says. “I also helped many companies start using 3D printers. Now, we have hundreds of Ultimaker 3D printers all over Bosnia, from schools and faculties to makerspaces, to the biggest companies in country.”
