Toms Musts was born November 10th, 1994 in Aluksne, Latvia. Toms is currently a student at Principia studying Business Administration with a strong interest in marketing.
Toms is very new to 3D printing. His first encounter was in January 2017, when he joined a 3D Printing class at Principia. The first assignment of the class was to build a JellyBox printer. Toms made his first 3D prints only recently in February on his own printer.
Toms went to a high school in his hometown in Latvia. He decided to pursue a college degree in the United States right after high school. Throughout his college experience, Toms has been a part of successful projects and involved himself in various extracurricular activities. From internships to highly successful and profitable business projects, Toms has experience in product development, writing, graphic design, and management. This year Toms is also serving as the Chairman of the Speakers Committee for America's longest student-run conference -- Public Affairs Conference at Principia College.
"Open Source gives people a chance to join a creative and selfless community that works together for a common goal. It's amazing to me how it fosters a non-competitive atmosphere. People aren’t going up against one another so there is no sabotaging, patenting or hiding information. Prints, ideas, designs, tutorials are all shared for everyone to use, and then people have the ability to build upon that knowledge. Building a JellyBox printer has been very fun and exciting. It teaches the process and the science behind 3D printing. And the sense of accomplishment after successfully building my own was amazing! This will definitely not be the last time I encounter 3D printing. It is a very fun and practical hobby that can lead to various exciting opportunities!” -Toms Musts
