James Novak

Sharing innovation in 3D printing

James Novak has been internationally recognised for his innovations in 3D printing. James has created a 3D printed bike potentially revolutionising high-performance sport equipment. He also regularly runs workshops for students and the broader community on 3D printing and technology.

James is an industrial designer, a PhD researcher and a university lecturer at Griffith University. Initially trained as an industrial designer, James returned to Griffith University in 2014 to begin post-graduate studies in the rapidly growing world of 3D printing. James’ design for a 3D printed bicycle brought him national and international recognition along with the prestigious Dick Aubin Distinguished Paper Award, and his design of a phone amplifier became one of the first products in the world to be 3D printed in wood from i.Materialise, leaders in 3D printing technology.

James shows a real commitment to inspiring, educating and informing Queenslanders on digital technologies and solutions in many ways, including:

  • his blog, Edditive

  • educational workshops for school groups about digital technologies and career opportunities

  • educational workshops for teachers about 3D printing and digital technologies

  • speaking at national and international conferences

  • national and international exhibitions of his work

  • interviews on television, radio and print media

  • his work at Griffith University educating the next generation of designers.

James continues his PhD research exploring:

  • wearable technologies

  • 4D products

  • Ubiquitous computing

  • the changing relationship between designers, products and consumers.

James is nominated by: Griffith University
