Formlabs Ambassadors Inspire

Formlabs Ambassadors are globally recognized 3D printing leaders who use Formlabs products and services to push boundaries, bring ideas to life, and create new solutions to existing problems.

Formlabs Ambassadors are engineers, designers, educators, dentists, and more.

From users who rely on a single printer for everyday prototyping or part production, to those leveraging print farms to create at scale, ambassadors all have one thing in common: they’re 3D printing experts who are passionate about Formlabs.

Ambassadors share their experiences and expertise with the larger 3D printing community, and get rewarded and recognized for it. 

Does this sound exciting? Then we want to talk.

Our Ambassadors

Michael Kononsky

Co-Founder

PLAATO

Oslo, Norway: Michael Kononsky is an industrial designer with extensive experience in design for manufacturing. As eager hobbyist beer brewers, Michael and his business partner Pål Ingebrigtsen saw an opportunity in the worldwide popularity of craft breweries and  homebrewing - today in the US alone there are already over 1 million homebrewers! Together they developed the Plaato airlock, a device that measures fermentation activity in a brew without needing contact with the liquid itself. For Michael, 3D printing is a critical tool for developing both early stage ideas and advanced details of end-use designs. After creating more than 1,000 prototypes, the Plaato team created a design that won the prestigious Red Dot Award.

April Krivoniak

Biomedical Engineer

University of Pittsburgh Medical Center

Pittsburgh, PA: April is a Biomedical Engineer at UPMC. April uses her Formlabs printer to 3D print anatomic models that physicians use for surgical planning, training of residents and fellows, and patient education. She also utilizes 3D printing to iterate on designs of patient-specific surgical instrumentation, while working with physicians to develop novel medical applications. April loves her Formlabs printer because it allows her to produce high-quality deliverables at a fraction of the cost of other commercially available printers, and it allows her to print delicate structures that would not be feasible on other printers.

Christophe Lambrecq

Managing Director

TechShop Ateliers Leroy Merlin

Paris, France: Christophe Lambrecq worked in the mold and tool industry for 20 years as a sales technician in the field of Electrical Discharge Machining. For the past 4 years, he has been managing the biggest Makerspace in France, Techshop Ateliers Leroy Merlin, a 600 square meter facility in the center of Paris dedicated to training and helping professionals, students, entrepreneurs with project analysis, prototyping, and manufacturing through classes, workshops and personalized help.

Janet Lieberman-Lu

Co-Founder

Dame Products

Brooklyn, NY: Janet Lieberman, the co-founder of Dame Products, knows how to get things made. After graduating from MIT in 2007, Janet honed her mechanical engineering and management skills at an impressive roster of companies, including Z Corporation, Makerbot, Quirky, and multinational soft-goods brand Microdry. Intimately familiar with the consumer electronics industry, Janet had an epiphany: vibrators weren’t being developed, manufactured, or marketed the way a quality consumer good should be. So Janet founded Dame Products to try to catalyze that shift. SLA 3D printing plays a critical role in Dame engineers’ development of new ergonomic product geometries, as well as in small batch silicone overmolding for customer beta prototypes.

Jay Loomis

Musician, Instrument Maker, Researcher

Brown University

Providence, RI: Jay is working on a PhD in ethno/musicology at Brown University. He plays and constructs a variety of wind instruments made from wood, ceramics, and 3D printed materials. He also composes and records his own works, often in parks and outdoor areas, where he can combine the sound of flutes with the sonic environment that surrounds him, from cityscapes to mountain streams. The high resolution 3D printing that he achieves with Formlabs technology is an essential part of the flute making process because it allows exploration of small details in a wind instrument's design, which makes a big difference in the sound that the flute will make.

Jesse Louis-Rosenberg

Co-Founder & Chief Science Officer

Nervous System

Palenville, NY: Nervous System is a collaboration between Jessica Rosenkrantz and Jesse Louis-Rosenberg. Jesse focused on math and computer science, while his partner Jessica studied biology and architecture. In their design studio they merge techniques from these different disciplines to look at new ways to generate products. They have worked with 3D-printing for the past decade to make customized art and design objects inspired by nature's complexity. Nervous System uses the Form 2 for everything from prototypes to finished products, including the Porifera jewelry line developed with Formlabs’ Ceramic Resin.

Evros Loukaides

Assistant Professor

University of Bath

Evros works at the interface of solid mechanics and production engineering. He is particularly interested in shape-shifting structures, mechanical metamaterials and waste-free manufacturing processes. 3D printing, despite its relatively recent introduction has strong synergies with all of the above and is often used in his lab to construct demonstrators and components for testing rigs.

Luiz Maracaja

Assistant Professor

Yale School of Medicine

New Haven, CT: Luiz is a professor at Yale University specializing in cardiac surgery and now serves as both founder and medical advisor to VIDA Medical Devices. In both his commerical and clinical work, he devises creative engineering solutions to imrpoving patient experience. His Formlabs printer helps him with rapid prototyping, and having the printer in house allows him to have a one-day design cycle. He 3D prints every night, tests his prototypes during the day and does design revisions in the afternoon. This cycle has allowed Luiz to take the next step from intellectual property to proof of concept and preclinical testing.

 

Ryan Milne

Technician, Sea Mammal Research Unit

University of St. Andrews

St. Andrews, Scotland: Ryan is a Zoology graduate and works as a Technician at the Sea Mammal Research Unit, University of St. Andrews. He works closely with a team of technicians and scientists to improve their knowledge and understanding of Marine Mammals in the UK and further afield. 3D printing has enabled him to develop accurate anatomical models of seals that are used in teaching and training.

Marc Moir

Owner

American Outlaw Design

Moodus, CT: Marc Moir has been working as a CNC manufacturing engineer for the past 10+ years, and has a side passion for creating artistic jewelry pieces for his fellow motorcyclists. Mark was quickly drawn into the endless possibilities of 3D printing with the availability and affordability of desktop printers, and makes extensive use of both Castable Wax resin and Formlabs Engineering Resins in his work.

Matt Moseman

Founder

Node U Design

Spring Green, WI: Matt Moseman is the co-founder of Node U Design, a startup creating programmable industrial nodes for localized manufacturing. Matt is passionate about helping small businesses scale by vertically integrating design to manufacturing. While his company leverages many manufacturing processes including CNC equipment, the Formlabs solutions became a must-have. Being able to ideate and create low fidelity prototypes in less than a day at an affordable cost allows Node U Design to stay competitive in a fast-paced industry.

Juan Carlos Noguera

Professor of Product Design

Maryland Institute College of Art

Baltimore, MD: Juan is an Industrial Designer and Educator. He holds a Masters of Industrial Design (MID) from the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) and a Bachelors of Industrial design (BID) from Universidad Rafael Landivar, in Guatemala city. A Guatemalan, he was raised in a colorful and vivid culture. He quickly developed an interest in how things were made, tearing everything he owned apart, and putting it back together, often with a few leftover pieces. After graduation and a succession of projects related to design for development, Juan was chosen as a Fulbright fellow for the class of 2013 by the U.S. Department of State. He went on to be the lead designer for Voxel8, helping create the world’s first 3D Electronics printer. He is currently a Product Design professor at MICA in Baltimore, Maryland. Juan was awarded as one of MIT Technology Review’s Innovators Under 35 for 2017.
