Motivation to participate FabAcademy

My motivation to participate FabAcademy is to strengthen skills to create something to become a “general” researcher. I would like to learn particularly hands-on skills for hardware aspects like 3D printing and CNC. This motivation has been raised because of my work situation. Although I belong to the R&D centre of JRE, most of the employees in the R&D centre do not create something for their researches because JRE is an operator, not a manufacturer. Then they are in charge of just making contracts to have many manufacturers work our researches instead of us. I feel frustrated with this work style, so I usually utilize my skills for software aspects(programming or simulation) to my research work but I think I have little experience for hardware. Then, I would like to learn hardware skills through this FabAcademy.
