President Donald Trump’s presidential campaign team is hiring a top 3D printer designer who was a top design engineer for the Republican National Committee.
The Trump campaign announced Friday that Matthew Smith will be the chief executive of 3D Printer Technologies Inc. in Washington, D.C., the same company he founded as a young designer and won a federal contract for the 2020 campaign.
Smith is known for his design and 3D printing expertise.
He has worked on projects for NASA and the National Institutes of Health.
“I am extremely honored and grateful to be selected to lead the transition of the Trump campaign,” Smith said in a statement.
“The future of this country and the world lies in 3D, and I am thrilled to be able to lead this great effort.”
Smith is the first major political appointee to have his name on a campaign team since the GOP’s first campaign chairman, Kellyanne Conway, took over in May.
