About Us

For now Pintstein LLC is owned and operated by one man so maybe the title should say About Me but I think my company’s days as a Sole Proprietorship are numbered. My name is Patrick Raines in 2013 I dropped out of a PhD program in Animal Behavior with a Masters in Biology.  I bounced around a little bit and eventually thought of something more exciting than anything in my PhD thesis ever was.  To bring this secret inspiration to life I was going to need the respect of industry professionals and reputable scientists.  3d printing was clearly the way to make an insane idea a real object that professionals could assess in the palm of their hands.

It might seem strange that a Biology student can master 3d printing but what you might not know is that there is a wealth of people sharing free knowledge and tools on the internet.  I am not mastering 3d printing alone, I have an army of mad scientists, mad engineers, mad lawyers, ect on my side.  Okay, maybe they aren’t on MY side but we are all allies in the battle against ignorance.  What do you need to defeat ignorance? Maybe I could be an ally in your battle.

I am hoping that by June 15th, 2016 my company will have a stable revenue stream and I can help some other frustrated geniuses improve their work lives.  I will be looking for people with skills including:

legal knowledge

business strategy

3d printing

3d modeling

computer programming

making art for books and educational displays


public relations

I used to be the only technician in a fruit fly research lab so I feel confident with accounting, administrating and managing a small organization.
