A former portfolio manager at T. Rowe Price jumped ship for an unusual new field: 3D printing.
Hugh Evans III works from his Towson home, traveling often for his new job at South Carolina-based 3D Systems, the Baltimore Business Journal reports. Evans, who left T. Rowe Price at the end of last year, is the company’s vice president for corporate development and ventures.

There’s a startup out west using 3-D printed spines to revolutionize the way spinal surgery is done. At 3D Systems there’s a project to make custom fit eyeglasses — no more bending, pinching and self-conscious feelings that your ears are uneven.

Big companies like General Electric are using 3-D printing to make better, more efficient parts for airplanes and cars.

“I can hardly think of an industry that won’t in some way be impacted,” Evans said.

Economic development officials in Howard County recently opened a 3D-printing prototyping lab at the Maryland Center for Entrepreneurship.
