Owner - Certified Prosthetist - 3D Printing Enthusiast

Joe Fairley is an ABC Certified Prosthetist & Board Eligible Orthotist, who has experience as a P&O technician before pursuing his Master’s in Prosthetics and Orthotics from Northwestern University (NUPOC). His BS in Physics and MS in Exercise and Sport Science equally compliment his clinical experience. 

Joe has been innovating digital workflows within the P&O field for over eight years. This includes working knowledge of several forms of additive manufacturing, CAD design, R&D, several different 3D scanners, and the beta-testing and development of two widely used modification softwares. He holds a patent which involves the additive manufacture through continuous fiber fabrication of a modular lower limb prosthesis system, he has been published in Prosthetics and Orthotics International, and has presented his research at multiple P&O conferences. 

Joe’s passion lies mainly in the prosthetic field, not just by innovating digital workflows, but especially in working with people who utilize running prostheses, and the pediatric amputee population. He also is an avid outdoorsman and enjoys hiking (ADK 46er), camping, running (long distance - marathon), skiing, and kayaking. His Am-Staff mix, Judah, is right by his side on many hiking escapades.

3D Printing Technician

Spencer Conway started as a 3D Printing Technician with Ascent Fabrication in February of 2023. He graduated from Clarkson University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science. Before coming to work at Ascent Fabrication he has had occupations in the Insurance and Construction Industry. 

Spencer first discovered 3D printing back in high school in an Intro to Engineering class and found it very intriguing. When he decided to make a career change and found a 3D Printing Technician position open at Ascent Fabrication he was excited to get started. Since starting at Ascent Fab Spencer’s 3D printing knowledge has vastly increased and he is even more excited to learn more about the industry as a whole and all of the different machines that are available. 

Spencer spends most of his time hanging out with his girlfriend and friends as well as spending a lot of time in the Adirondacks. Whether that be camping, hiking, skiing, or being out on one of the many lakes the Adirondacks has to offer. He also owns a Content Creation company, Up North Drone Productions, that specializes in creating Drone Content for local businesses, fundraisers, and real estate.
