Portuguese is generally regarded as the sixth most natively spoken language in the world, the third-most spoken European language in the world in terms of native speakers, and a major language of the Southern Hemisphere. There are an estimated 260 million speakers of Portuguese.

Taila Rodrigues, managing Portuguese editor for 3D Printr Magazine grew up in a small town surrounded by rural areas in the state of Parana, in the south of Brazil. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Computer Information Systems from Ourinhos Integrated Faculties (FIO) in Sao Paulo. In Paraná, she served in the Office of Social Services as director of the Municipal Department of Psycho-Social Assistance, helping people in situations of social vulnerability.

She moved to Los Angeles, California, in search of a personal development in technological skills which led her to 3D printing. While taking classes at Santa Monica College Continuing Ed, she was introduced to the capabilities of the new medium and was captivated. She enrolled in their 3D printing classes and built her first 3D printer for $200.

“A lot of companies want to know about this in Brazil and I want to make that happen,” said Rodrigues, whose belief is that technology can be accessible for people worldwide.
