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.

Founder, 3D Smiths & FungisaursLos 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.
Dr. Ali Razian
Orthopedic Surgeon, Richmond Hill HospitalWemmel, Belgium
I am an orthopedic surgeon and I had the idea of integrating 3D into my professional activity by printing bones.
D. Allan Drummond
Associate Professor, The University of ChicagoChicago, IL
I'm a scientist and artist, in both cases deeply fascinated and motivated by the phenomenon of life. My sculptural work uses 3D printing and casting to create highly detailed metal realizations of living things, extant or extinct or in some cases imagined. To my surprise and delight as a researcher, these works of art have turned out to be my most effective acts of scientific communication.
CEO and Founder, Help3DPadova, Italy
Andrea PIrazzino started his journey with 3D printing in 2013 as a maker. In 2015, he opened Help3D, a retail store for all technologies of 3D printing and website. His Youtube Channel, a reference in Italy, now counts 30k followers and dozens of videos from news, tutorials, reviews and livestreams about CAD software and 3D printing.
Biomedical Engineer, University of Pittsburgh Medical CenterPittsburgh, 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.
