He’s the master of making and he can truly make almost everything, transforming the normal and reinventing the usual into mind-blowing objects everyday. Curious and inventive, DiResta started making things when he was a child and since then he didn’t stop: making is his life and each challenge is welcomed. Now DiResta stepped into the 3D printing world and our CraftBot was his first printer – another big challenge is here and many great projects will come out soon!

 

Craft Unique had a very inspiring talk with DiResta to understand his creative mind. Ready?

 

 

CU: You are seen by many as a reference in the Maker Movement and you make almost everything that is worth making. How did this passion start?

JD: Thank you! As a kid I started because my dad saw my curiosity and keep handing me tools and material to experiment with .. it started then… it has been my only job, making things for $.

 

CU: From the concept to the final object: how does your creative process work?

JD: The idea comes to me, I think on it for few weeks before I make sketch. Often I’ll just make notes, words, and as I have more focused ideas and few mental breakthroughs I’ll begin to sketch.. and then build…

CU: What do you think about 3D printing technology?

JD: It is very cool , it is developing very fast.. in a short time it will have necessity and will be more usable to everyone – like “emailing” objects and tools, that will be cool to see.
