Christian Platt


Christian Platt is a technology, fitness, and DIY enthusiast with a love for the entire product design process, from initial concept and sketching, to prototyping, production and distribution. He enjoys involving himself with startups, most recently at GIGAmacro where he machines parts for and builds robotic camera systems capable of capturing gigapixel macro photographs using standard DSLR cameras. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I have the pleasure of working with a CNC mill and all manner of shop, power, and hand tools to build our systems. After running the mill, I wanted to make one for myself. I studied for several years as a mechanical engineer where I learned the basics of SOLIDWORKS. I've crossed over to Fusion 360 as that is what my company uses, and decided to learn the program by modeling my mill so I can manufacture its parts in the shop.
