The same tools, dozens of perspectives
From users who rely on a single printer for everyday prototyping, to those leveraging print farms to manufacture at scale, our ambassadors all have one thing in common: they are redefining the way things are made.
Formlabs Ambassadors share their experiences and expertise with the 3D printing community by leading webinars, writing blog posts, posting their work on social media, and advising on white papers.
Our 2021 Formlabs Impact Award winner is Julien Montenero, a French prosthesis specialist who creates realistic prosthetics for breast cancer patients.

Digital Sculptor and Art DirectorSideshow Collectibles
Buenos Aires, Argentina: I was born in 1984 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I´m a CG Artist and Digital Sculptor and I have been working in different areas of the field for more than fifteen years. My first job connected with the 3d world was in engineering as a Mechanical Designer. Later on, I moved to Architectural Visualization as a Technical Director. This was followed by Video Games, where I worked as Lead Animator. Then I entered the Advertising and Motion Graphics business as a CG artist and Art Director. And for the last 5 years, I´ve been working as a digital sculptor for some of the best collectible companies in the world, like Sideshow Collectibles. There, I perform the role of Senior Sculptor, giving life to many DC and Marvel characters, from the comics to the statue collectible world.

DirectorOzaero Custom Designs
Kilworthy, ON, Canada: Born in Sao Paulo Brazil, Osvaldo Correia developed a passion for model airplanes like many young boys, but never imagined the role it would play in his future. He was taught the art of sign painting by his father at a very young age and had started his own sign painting business by the age of 19. At age 32, with two successful businesses already in full swing, Osvaldo decided to turn his passion for model airplanes into a business as well. He built a workshop in the back of his property and started Juniaer Modelismo, designing and building his own scale remote control (RC) planes. Osvaldo ran Juniaer for five years until moving to Canada in 2003. At the time he sold it, the company supported three full-time airplane builders. To this day it is still a thriving business, exporting RC planes to 18 different countries. Fifteen years later, Osvaldo brought his dream back to life with the establishment of Ozaero Custom Designs. Using cutting edge technology such as Formlabs 3D printers, he creates and produces high-end detailing for scale RC jets. His goal is to continually push limits for his customers, challenging their perceptions of what is possible in this field.
Epithesist and developer of custom medical devicesDeendayal research institute
Paris, France: Dental prosthetist for 25 years, Julien took a university course in facial prosthesis applied in 2010 at the medical faculty of Pierre and Marie Curie Paris VI, which led him develop a 3D production workflow in maxillofacial prosthesis (epithesis ) in order to perpetuate reconstructions of large areas of the face. In 2011 he set up a pre and postoperative scan process to reconstruct the amputated parts of his patients, in order to restore them to accuracy with his prostheses. Since 2016, Julien has been working in partnership with Médecins Sans Frontières in Jordan in Amman for the development of maxillofacial rehabilitations by prosthesis using 3D technologies. At the same time, he is developing processes in the dental world for the rehabilitation of large areas using biocompatible materials developed by Formlabs.
Péronnas, France: Julien BAJOLET is Head of Additive Manufacturing and welding at AFPMA. With an engineer’s degree in Mechanical from ENIM and research Master degree from UPVM in 2011, he joined the SAFRAN group for a PhD in collaboration with the LaBPS laboratory. The goal of the project was the weight diminution of electronic packaging in aeronautic and that's the moment additive manufacturing became necessary. In 2015 at IPC, he is in charge of the additive manufacturing service for metal, polymer and composites AM. Since 2020, he has joined AFPMA to lead the AM and welding activities: training and councils.
