The 3D printing user conference reconvenes for its fifth year to celebrate more than 100 million innovations printed on Formlabs 3D printers, the impacts of these designs, and 3D printing applications.
The event will feature discussions about 3D printing innovations, from generative and nature-inspired product design and props and prosthetics from TV shows, to how access to additive manufacturing tools prepares students for future careers, and how in-house rapid tooling adds flexibility to manufacturing workflows. Formlabs has assembled a speaker lineup for the User Summit, featuring:
- Sheri Thorn, aerospace engineer, NASA Goddard
- Amy Alexander, unit head biomechanical development & applied computational engineering, Mayo Clinic
- Dr. Alejandro Pineda, director, Clinica Lhasa
- Jessica Rosenkrantz and Jesse Louis-Rosenberg, co-founders, Nervous System
- Ryan Mandell, director, Innovation Hub Makerspace, Penn State
- Jaco Snyman, founder and lead production designer, Dreamsmith
The Summit will offer sessions in eight languages, including a Formlabs University track that will help users boost their 3D printing skills, a User Talk Track highlighting case studies and applications across engineering, product design, manufacturing, education, entertainment, jewelry, automotive, aerospace, and more. Innovations in dental and medical industries will also be featured, including a women-led Medical Talk track that will address 3D printing’s application in personalised healthcare.
Formlabs co-founder and CEO Max Lobovsky said: “Each year, the Formlabs User Summit is an opportunity to celebrate everything that our community has accomplished and inspire future innovators. Our users achieved an amazing milestone, printing more than 100 million parts with Formlabs printers. This year’s Summit and expanded Impact Awards will shine the spotlight on the many ways that their 3D printed designs, prototypes, and devices have made an impact on the medical, automotive, and entertainment industries, to name a few.”
