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.

Digital Fabrication Lab TechnicianAnderson Ranch Arts Center
Snowmass Village, CO: Leah Aegerter is an artist and Instructor at Anderson Ranch Arts Center. Leah uses digital fabrication as part of an interdisciplinary practice, and she believes that the most successful and exciting outcomes happen when 3D printing is used in combination with other processes, including traditional hand-crafting techniques. Leah incorporates many SLA materials including Draft and Clear Resins into her workflow for 3D design courses. Her students include instructors at other institutions who want to learn about the latest available tools and processes.
Founder3D Smiths & Fungisaurs
Los Angeles, CA: Aiman Akhtar is a designer that wears many hats: digital sculptor, 3D printing expert, photographer, storyteller, animator, and video editor. The Form 2 is central to the 3D pitch maquette and toy development workflows of Aiman’s business, 3D Smiths. He uses it to prototype and test the physical engineering of ZBrush sculpts and prepare models for mass production by injection molding. He recently launched a series of mystery box toys called Fungisaurs. Aiman prototyped each of the 8 Fungisaurs characters on his Form 2, at least three times, until converging on final versions to have painted and sent to the injection molding factory.

Lead DesignerThe Third Thumb
London, UK: Dani Clode is a multi-disciplinary collaborative prosthetics designer investigating the perception and future architecture of our bodies. 3D printing provides the innovative materials and complex geometry options to work with unique body shapes. Her main project “The Third Thumb” is currently being developed for neuroscience research in collaboration with The Plasticity Lab at University College London. The main focus of the study is to explore the brain’s ability to adapt to augmentation.
Brooklyn, NY: Jocelyn DeSisto is one of the founders of the contemporary jewelry studio Lot28. Working at the intersection of art, science, and technology, Jocelyn’s designs are inspired by microbiology and rooted in the joy of discovery. Her luminous coral-like jewelry is printed with Formlabs Clear Resin, painted by hand, and set in hand fabricated sterling silver. Jocelyn discovered rapid prototyping while completing her BFA in Jewelry Design from Savannah College of Art and Design. Now at Lot28, localized fabrication helps her on her mission to promote environmental sustainability in the jewelry industry.
Daniel De Leon
Los Angeles, CA: Daniel is a passionate multi-disciplinary artist, designer, and upcoming filmmaker with a unique background in fine arts, digital design, and clinical emergency medicine. Daniel specializes in digital sculpting and 3D printing for visual effects in film and video games. He’s worked with top-tier brands including Amazon Studios, Netflix, Jurassic World, HBO’s WestWorld, and often asked to sculpt detailed anatomy. The Form 2 has extended Daniel’s reach from the digital world to the physical, working with clients on physical prototypes, functional props, collectable models, or beautifully detailed statues for private collections.
Marco De Rossi
Research FellowUniversitat Politècnica de València
Valencia, Spain: Marco is an industrial designer and researcher specializing in digital fabrication at the Universitat Politècnica de València in Spain. His everyday work involves quickly developing prototypes for lab tests and experimental equipment for research projects at the university. In addition, lots of people from many industries reach out to Marco in search of advice to solve design and manufacturing problems. Because of this, he has had the opportunity to implement 3D printing for many types of clients, from toy and chocolate manufacturers to hospitals.
Founder & COOSouth Africa Makes
Cape Town, South Africa: Dr. Cherise Dunn is the co-founder and Chief Operations Officer for SOUTH AFRICA MAKES. SOUTH AFRICA MAKES is an award-winning and internationally recognised startup providing digital manufacturing services for the medical, and research and development industries in Africa. Dr Dunn was recognized by the United States Department of State as one of the leaders in her field in Africa and was nominated for the International Visitor Leadership Program for Women in Entrepreneurship. Most recently Dr Dunn was selected as one of the 50 most inspiring women in STEM in South Africa as awarded by Inspiring Fifty SA; and was one of the Mail & Guardian Top 200 Young South Africans. As a global thought-leader on 3D Printing for Development (3D4D), she has been featured on TEDx and believes that 3D printing is the 4IR technology that will drive the future of emerging economies.
Clinical Engineering Respiratory Service SpecialistBaystate Health
Springfield, MA: Greg Gagnon is a Clinical Engineering and 3D Printing Specialist at Baystate Health. One of his daily responsibilities is 3D printing anatomy for patient education and pre-surgical planning. He uses these models to communicate with staff on novel surgical approaches which reduce OR times for staff and patients, improve accuracy, and increase patient confidence. Beyond replicating anatomy, Greg also helps to design and create custom surgical tools and guides for intraoperative use with members of Baystate’s surgical team. Depending on the project, Greg chooses from among Formlabs’ large library of resins and the Form 2 is his go-to printer.
Scotts Valley, CA: Will works as a mechanical engineer in the cycling industry and started his own framebuilding company, Albatross Bikes. He got his start in 3D printing when looking for a way to quickly and easily prototype products before sending them into production. Formlabs printers are used in Will’s workflow to provide form and fit prototypes of segments of his bike frames, as well as accessories. This changed the way Albatross Bikes works in that they are now able to quickly and cheaply iterate on their designs and prove out our ideas in the physical world before committing to expensive tooling.
Dr. Mike Karlin
Assistant Prof. of Orthopedic SurgerySchool of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts
North Grafton, MA: Dr. Karlin is a member of the Department of Clinical Sciences and is an Assistant Professor in Small Animal Orthopedic Surgery at Tufts. Dr. Karlin splits his time between the orthopedic service in Foster Hospital for Small Animals and instructing clinical year students, interns, and residents. He uses his Formlabs printer clinically as well as for teaching, and a major benefit of his Formlabs printers is the ability to hit print and walk away! In his field, reliability is also key. When printing a bone for surgical planning, it needs to come out perfectly the first time, and his Form 2 hasn’t let him down.
Edmonton, Canada: Carolyn completed her Dental Technology Diploma from NAIT in 2007 and worked in privately owned dental laboratories where she focused on dental device construction with a high need for aesthetics. Carolyn joined iRSM in 2013 and is interested in using digital technology to replace conventional dental processes. She went on to further her post-secondary education and obtained a Bachelor of Technology in Technology Management in 2017. She uses conventional training, an interest in digital technology, additive manufacturing, and aesthetic skills to help patientsneeding intraoral prosthetics at iRSM. Carolyn is very involved with the College of Dental Technologists of Alberta, sitting on two committees–the Finance Committee and the Competency Sub-Committee. She was also a member then chair of the NAIT Dental Technology Advisory Committee from 2007-2017.
