Why Digital Media
Chris is working with classmates Phil, Tyler, and Rhandy to develop Materialyze. Based in Toronto, this startup emerged out of the MDM program. Operating within the 3D-printing industry, Materialyze provides an online platform for the sale, purchase, and digital rights management protection of 3D designs. The site allows designers to upload, categorize, and price their designs for purchase by users who can print on multiple types of 3D printers.
