Formlabs announces the return of its global Formlabs User Summit, a free virtual event from October 26-27, 2022. The 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.

At the 2022 User Summit, the event will feature discussions about 3D printing innovations, from generative and nature-inspired product design and hyper-realistic props and prosthetics from your favorite 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 the following speaker lineup for the User Summit:

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, 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 personalized healthcare.
“Each year, the Formlabs User Summit is an opportunity to celebrate everything that our community has accomplished and inspire future innovators,” says Formlabs co-founder and CEO Max Lobovsky. “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.”
