One of my best reference is at LOTUS DEVELOPMENT bought by IBM in 1995.

Lotus Consulting University 1996

International consultants from Lotus Development at IBM New-York. 1996.

Exactly at that time and since 1993, I was a specialist on the famous program Lotus Notes/Domino a pioneer in Groupware. Since then I specialized on Php/SQL using what I learnt about "Working Together" the famous Lotus tagline. I started being a freelance right after working for Lotus and felt in love with the Open-Source Movement and got my hands dirty on Linux, and lost some hair coding. >D

Check out my Linkedin profile to learn more about me as a professional programmer since 1994 and passionate gamer since 1980 on Atari 2600 on which I discovered my first pixels with 6 years old eyes... and it's always a pleasure to use a computer for me ! <3 ! Just to be precise: I wrote my first program at 14 years old with my cousin Alexandre Mendes in Paris on a Amstrad CPC464 which was a Solitaire game way before multiplayer games like Doom. ;P

3DLibre Project Story

2009 : I saw my first RepRap in Paris at the /tmp/lab in a demo by Alexandre Korber from Usinette.org at that moment. Thank you so much Alexandre. =)

2013 : First REPRAP MendelPro built at home at night and 15 Kg of PLA 3D-Printed ! First clients who show interest in the objects and proof that they are sellable ! Thanks again to MixArt-Myrys and TetaLab.

my first 3D Printer


2014 : Transformation from "MendelPro" to "Prusa i3 Rework", with the help of eMotion-Tech. Started to work for Tournefeuille's Mediatheque with Arduino workshops and of course 3D-Printing on RepRap and 3D Modeling on Blender.

my first Prusa i3 ReWork


2015 : I worked as freelance for Tournefeuille's "Mediathèque" close from Toulouse in very hard conditions on my part but excellent help from their staff... btw rooms were crowded at maximum which is a very good point. I had 8 slots and had to manage 10 to 11 people almost each time! Sessions were on Sunday from 09am to 12am then 2pm to 5pm just to let people enjoy the rest of the saturday (chosen by the management). I was paid 375€ per Saturday there but they only happened 6 times in the year. One day I hurt myself the day before and couldn't go so the new director asked me to completely stop which was a "no pity" style management for a freelance tbh... The workshop ran super well each time ! People were very happy... that's why I'm so sad about that relation with the Mediathèque.

I also built my *second* RepRap bought in part from EricDuino and eMotion-Tech for the missing Nema17 steppers. Eric is a super-huge RepRap fan and several times national champion on "Line Follower Robots" with the Airduino team from AIRBUS ! (wtf ?)

one of my first workshops in Tournefeuille, France.

2016 : Printing and programing the GrippyBot. Moved from Toulouse to Albi. (less 3D-Printing, just relaxing, took 15 days of holidays abroad)

my first GrippyBot


Well I let this video online but this is old now. My new setup is not mobile anymore. This concept is quite huge imnsho : 3D-Printing where it's necessary !

This was in Toulouse. I still use this funny van painted in Toulouse at Mixart-Myrys by 3 different artists: Dark, Mikoz and Dwarf-One. <3 !



2017 : Moved from Albi to Santiago-do-Cacèm - Portugal with still some travels to Toulouse with my blue Renault Trafic !

my reprap at Santiago do Cacem

2018 : Lots of 3D Printing again for all sort of people !

my first 3D Scaned DOG !

2019 & 2020 : New setup and contacts ! STILL 3D PRINTING !
