About this video

Growing up during the Cultural Revolution in China, Ping Fu wanted to be an astronaut. She survived 10 years of abuse, both physical and emotional, and has since gone on to create her own company Geomagic, bringing 3D printing software to design. Recently, her technology was used in a space shuttle, bringing her a little bit closer to her childhood dream.


Honored by Inc. Magazine as “The Entrepreneur of the Year” in 2005, Ping Fu describes herself as an artist and a scientist whose chosen expression is business. Ping co-founded Geomagic, a leading US software company which pioneers 3D technologies that fundamentally change the way products are designed and manufactured around the world. From repairing vintage cars at Jay Leno’s garage to preserving US treasures and digitally recreating the Statue of Liberty, Geomagic enables design and production of one-of-the-kind products and services at a cost less than mass production.
