October 2010 Speaker – Don Lewis, P.E.

Don Lewis, P.E.

“Tinkering” since the age of 3, Don was focused on science and engineering since an early age. After receiving his Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Tennessee Technological University, he began his engineering career in research and development with a Fortune 50 company, moving later to another large corporation to lead its largest engineering group in implementing capital improvements including processes, machinery, and new products. After a layoff in 2004, Don utilized his professional engineering license as a consultant to develop and refine the project management process and manage over 20 projects for his client. Upon completing this consulting assignment, and having a strong desire to learn about small company operation, Don accepted a position as Vice-President of Engineering for a small manufacturing company. It was during his tenure in this position that Don became very interested in rapid prototyping. When the economic downturn caused another layoff, he decided to enter the rapid prototyping arena. He began RapidTech Prototypes, a 3D printing service bureau, with the mission to bring affordable rapid prototyping to the Tennessee, northern Alabama, and southern Kentucky area.
