Former MakerBot Head of Software Far McKon Joins Berlin-based 3D Printing Pioneer BigRep As New Head of Software

Berlin, January 28, 2016. Renowned American software developer Far McKon is joining Berlin-based tech start-up BigRep, manufacturer and developer of the world’s largest serially available 3D printer.
