Registration is now open for the free virtual event on 26-27 October, inviting Formlabs users and 3D printing enthusiasts to discuss the impact and future of the industry.

Formlabs, a 3D printing company, announces the return of its global Formlabs User Summit, a free virtual event from 26-27 October 2022. The world’s largest 3D printing user conference reconvenes for its fifth year to celebrate more than 100 million innovations printed on Formlabs 3D printers, the positive impacts of these designs and 3D printing applications.

Formlabs customers, community members, and anyone curious to learn more about 3D printing can register at the Formlabs website. Attendees who register by 21 August (11:59 pm ET) will be entered to win their choice of a Formlabs Form 3+ or Form 3B+ stereolithography (SLA) 3D printer.

At the 2022 User Summit, Formlabs will unite users and enthusiasts to inspire the next generation of innovations. The event will feature discussions about extraordinary 3D printing innovations, from generative and nature-inspired product design and hyper-realistic 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 an enticing speaker lineup for the User Summit, tapping thought leaders who are using Formlabs 3D printing in a variety of industries, including:

● 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 multi-level 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, jewellery, 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.
