Remembering Sanjay Mortimer: 1989 - 2021

It is with the heaviest of hearts that E3D are announcing the death of one of our founding directors, Sanjay Mortimer. He passed away on Saturday 27th November.

Sanjay was a legend in our industry and played a huge role in revolutionising FDM 3D printing. As a founding member of E3D, he was instrumental to all our early developments. As we grew to where we are today, he continued to play an important role in our engineering team.

Over the last ten years he has supported the creation of a world-leading extrusion system engineering team in preparation for E3D’s second decade. Sanjay’s team will deliver on our vision of changing the way humanity manufactures goods.

We will reflect on how we can celebrate a remarkable man. Dave and Josh believe that the spirit of this should be maintained with an endowment in Sanjay’s name to assist young engineers in achieving their goals.


Supporting one another

We invite the community to share their memories and tributes to Sanjay across our social channels, in the hope this may take away a small amount of pain and put a smile on our faces during this deeply sad time. We have also created a support channel on our Discord where E3D team members and friends will be available.

All our love,

Team E3D
