Yes, that little trailer I have for my YouTube channel is a bit old, but, people still seem to like it 🙂

Hi, my name is Joel Telling, though many today know me as the 3D Printing Nerd. I’m a Pacific Northwest native, hailing from Seattle, Washington. My YouTube channel started out as a way for me to share all the cool things I was doing with my very first 3d printer, and since then has transformed into one of the most trusted online places for 3d printer reviews, tips, and tricks. My goal is to inform, educate, and advocate, and I accomplish this with thanks in part to the wonderful 3d printing community I am a part of.

Thank you for stopping by my place on the web. I leave you with two testimonials from three great people.

In person, Joel Telling is exactly what you hope he’ll be after watching his YouTube channel. Warm, intelligent, TALL, and with hair as wild as his charisma. He charms anyone in his path, leaving people inspired and ready to try anything and everything they see Joel authentically excited about. Anytime we have him do appearances in our trade show booth he attracts crowds of star-struck kids and adults alike. He treats everyone with respect and doles out tireless high-fives, while always being mindful to represent and promote our brand. He is the quintessential model of the “Dad-brand” – safe and infectious for teaching technology to young people, with enough real-world knowledge (he is a software developer by trade) and technical know-how to be a trusted and respected resource for parents and professionals. Our next generation of makers, designers, and inventors is safe in the capable hands of Joel Telling.

We have known Joel since the very early days of his YouTube channel and it has been wonderful, yet not surprising, to see his channel grow so much in such a short period of time.

Joel is one of the most genuine, professional, hard working, and all-around awesome people that we have had the pleasure to connect with. It’s through his passion, humor, knowledge, and consistency in his content that he is able to connect with and inspire so many people. We also truly appreciate how he continues to create awareness and recognition for both gCreate and the gMax Printers. We look forward to continuing to build a symbiotic relationship with him and also feel lucky to call him a personal friend.
