We are looking for a candidate who has some or most of the following skills.

Must have a dedication to helping a diverse team succeed with complex and varied tasks .  


The primary responsibility of this position is to prepare, maintain and run commercial 3D Printers, as well as pre and post process the 3D Printed parts.  Because LGM processes a large volume of 3D Prints daily, the majority of the Digital Fabricator’s time will be spent taking files from the Senior staff, loading them in to the machines, processing the finished parts and shipping completed projects.  The Digital Fabricator is responsible for on time delivery of high quality parts. A steady hand and attention to detail on small parts is essential.

When not taking care of the routine 3D Printing processes, the digital fabricator will learn to evaluate and modify customer parts for 3D Printing using CAD and digital prep tools, learn to select best fabrication methods and advise customers by phone and email and occasionally fabricate wood, acrylic, plastic and other parts in support of senior modelmakers.

Job will require you to lift 30lb pail of 3D Printing powder one moment followed quickly by lifting .1oz 3D Printed part.  

Job will require you to stand for several hours followed quickly by sitting at computer for several hours.  


Special Requirements:
This career opportunity requires an equal love of the mountain lifestyle and commitment to digital manufacturing.  You must be eager to work hard and play hard.  Living in a mountainous resort area is amazing, but there are tradeoffs.  The appropriate candidate will have a drive to live, work and play in the mountains.

LGM is not a company that makes their office look like a fun place to work in order to get you to live there (unless you are a super nerd).  We are authentic.  We live in one of the most fun places in the world but we are also a leading innovator in our field.  LGM produces the highest quality work for some of the most discerning customers around the world.
