Sean Bellefeuille: We started a club called 'Bio Print.' And then basically, 1 of the first projects that we took on, it spun out into the business idea and that's where we went from there...A local veterinarian surgeon in Rochester, New York, reached out to us and basically said, 'I have a really complicated case, and I'm not really sure how to approach it, can you guys 3D print a model of my patient's limb?' We were not really sure how to tackle that, but we put a little bit of time into it and we were actually able to do it.
