With the flair to create his own future, Brooklands College student Myron Teleychuk is rapidly developing his entrepreneur skills. Having previously studied at Philip Southcote School, Myron is now studying Entry 2 Preparation For Employment as well as Engineering & Media here at the College.
At just 19 years old, Myron has already started his own business in 3D printing and is taking regular orders with the ability to even customise items to the client’s requirements.
Durable products for daily use, branded merchandise, image & logo embossing… You name it – Myron can make it!
I got my first 3D printer when I was 16 and I had to build it from scratch. I bought it for £100, but it didn’t work properly! I bought a new one for £300, it has much more detail and is a smaller size. I had to figure out how to use it with YouTube videos, instructions and magazines.
I do the design on the computer, sometimes with coding, and I use different programmes including Flash, MakerBot, 3D Print & Microsoft Print.
What inspired you to do this?
I didn’t have a printer and if you buy an object, it was expensive. So, instead of buying it, I thought I’d make it.
I sell my products on eBay & Amazon. Keyrings, fidget spinners, soap dispensers, car parts, computer casings, models, Lego casing…
Do you like your courses?
I like Engineering and Media. It’s all linked together… When you do programming, it’s Media. When you print it, it’s Engineering.
How would you describe your experience here at Brooklands College?
It’s a very enjoyable college. It’s fun and there are good lessons.
I find it useful knowing how to do oil changes. I printed bolts for oils screws… I’ve got a whole engine and gearbox printed out at home in working order!
Is this the future of car manufacturing?
Yes. Normally, the outer casing is PLA and the middle parts are ABS.. This is unbreakable.
Do you have any other hobbies?
Sports, swimming, cycling and go karting.
What are your future ambitions?
I hope to continue 3D printing and grow my business.
