    Pete Hartnett, (Previously) Manufacturing Engineer at Protolabs

    "Tulip has enabled Protolabs to go from an idea, to a minimum viable Product, to a stable, version controlled, and released software in days as opposed to months. The code-free interface means the people who best know what the floor needs are able to make all the tools we need to run our floor. Receiving this Groundbreaker Award is a huge honor for all of us working with Tulip at Protolabs."
