 Diego Porqueras Biography

Diego Porqueras is the President and Founder of Deezmaker. He is also the inventor of the Bukobot 3-D printer which he introduced in April 2012 on Kickstarter. The project quickly raised nearly four times the requested amount, and a few months later he opened “Deezmaker” the first 3D printing store & hackerspace in the U.S. Diego has always been fascinated by making things. A summer school computer science class in sixth grade got him started, and he continued with high school metal shop, electronics and computer programing.

Diego worked as a photographer, graphic designer and as a web developer for many years and then, in 2000, took a film class at Pasadena’s Art Center College of Design which started a new career in the film industry. He started working as a production assistant on movies and music videos and took any opportunity he could get to be on film sets. Eventually, he started working productions in the camera department as a camera tech working on films such as Jim Carrey’s “Fun with Dick and Jane”, “Children of Men”, “Burn After Reading” and other commercials and television shows. A desire to make better camera mount equipment led him to 3D printing, and a passion for making machines better led him to go beyond the available kits to make his own.

Porqueras is known for developing and sourcing the highest quality components in the consumer 3D printing industry. If anyone has operated or "heard" Deezmaker's printers they're impressively quiet, solidly engineered to print 10+ materials, and configured for quick upgradability. Some printer features are gold plated nozzles, synchromesh instead of nobby belts, and drive gears designed by aerospace engineers.

Additionally Porqueras has a philosophy of keeping "Open Source" a top priority. It's a path he and his associates want in their daily lives as well.
