Pasadena locals Joan Horvath and Rich Cameron have co-founded a new consulting and training company, Nonscriptum LLC, to help educators and scientists learn how to use 3D printing and other “maker” technologies (like Arduino and wearable tech). Horvath’s career includes stints as a JPL rocket scientist, entrepreneur and educator, and Cameron is a 3D printing guru who designed the Wallace and Bukito 3D printers.
