My name is Norbert Rovira.
I am the founder of 3D Print Barcelona, a community of 3D printer users and/or passionate people about 3D Printing in Barcelona.
I am a wannabe entrepreneur, that finally accomplished my wish at 45. I had a couple of failed attempts as co-founder: fabshub.com, a network of local fabbers using digital fabrication and clarityfab.com a project to build a resin 3dprinter for the dental market. Both websites do not exist anymore.
In 2015 I co-founded LynxCross a functional training gym where we have lots of fun.
In 2016 I co-founded Natural Robotics in line with my other hobby, a company to manufacture 3D printers. I left the company a year later.
I keep myself involved with digital fabrication, and I provide services in this area either in 3D modeling and design as well as 3D printing in several technologies. And to take benefit of the whole potential of digital fabrication, I created jointly with Natalia the online shop Artecitos where we make customized products for home decor, very personal gifts and some geek things, either in wood or 3D printed.
I was born in 1970. I had the opportunity to live the PC emerging while I was playing and learning to code with a Commodore 64 as a teenager. Technology has always been one of my passions, but not the tool to make a living ;). You can find the gadgets I love and other tech news up to 2015 in my Tumblr blog: My Tekkie Soul (I switch writing between English and Spanish, this is no longer updated as I moved to this blog but there is quite some history).
Around 2006 I started to rock climb, and this was another big change in my life. During these years I increased the number of mountain related activities: rock climbing, climbing, alpine climbing, mountaineering, ski mountaineering, running, trail running, via ferrata, hiking, …
