The Instructor

Michael Perina is the founder of Assembyl 3D and a lifelong Staten Island resident. He built his first 3D printer in 2010 and launched his first company 3dfactory LLC shortly after, helping others build their first printer. 3dfactory LLC went on to sell over 500 DIY 3D printer kits around the world, with many of them going to schools and universities. In 2015, he formed Assembyl 3D offering local 3D printing services, 3D printed products and became Staten Island’s first local business to specialize in additive manufacturing. Assembyl 3D has since grown and is now a reseller for many OEMs while also offering consulting, training, STEAM infused curriculum and technical support. Michael has spoken at various tech expos regarding 3D printing and works with many schools and organizations here on the island helping them introduce and/or maintain this incredibly powerful technology.
