Realize Employee Profile: Dave Pierson

Friday, June 28, 2013 by Ray

What is your role at Realize?

I empty the machines and take the parts out. Then I run them through cycles in the oven, take to my desk and do finished touches. Sanding inserts into needed parts and package up for customers.

What challenges do you face during a typical week at Realize?

Different parts need different levels of attention. Some parts take more time, so the balance of timing with different types of orders is the biggest challenge.

How does Realize do things differently than the competition?

Personal touch. It’s not machine-to-customer. There is a lot of time and effort getting things to the desired finished state.

What are some of your favorite things in the world?

Sports, coaching, playing, competing. I’m a competitor. I play poker. I have three boys 12-10-10. I like coaching wrestling the best. Growing up my favorite athlete was Magic Johnson, I idolized him.

Favorite meal?

My Moms lasagna with garlic bread and a Dr. Pepper. For dessert dutch apple pie a la mode with french vanilla ice cream.

What music are you listening to right now?

Sports talk. I listen to sports most of the time. I love the Colts and Pacers.
With music I‘m diverse. I listen to all of it; Rap and RB.

What fascinates you most about Rapid Prototyping and 3D printing?

The different types of things that we do, whether its for a car, musical instrument or even a medallion for Lil Wayne…it’s just incredible.

You can take two movies with you to space…which do you bring?

Warrior and 48 Hours.

One word that describes you?
