Scott Crump


Nothing says “pioneer” like being inducted into the Minnesota Inventors Hall of Fame, and that’s where Stratasys founder Scott Crump belongs. His development of a fused deposition 3-D printing process—which has transformed manufacturing processes around the world—landed him in the MIHOF this year, alongside such local legends as Seymour Cray of Cray Research and Medtronic’s Earl Bakken. Crump’s acquisition of MakerBot Industries last year has made Stratasys the dominant player in the 3-D printing industry.
