In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner, MaRS Discovery District talks with the founder of a green, 3D-printing company which overhauled its operations after realizing the novelty of its idea. 

After using a 3D printer in school, Dennon Oosterman -- co-founder and CEO of Redetech -- wanted to consider how to not only reuse recyclable materials but also combine them with 3D printing. At one point for the small company, when things were especially hitting a wall with new international regulations, the team collectively made the decision to take to the beach and take a break.

For Oosterman, the transition came when the company decided to bring its manufacturing inside the walls of its office in Ontario, Canada.
