Innovation and Research 3D Printing Grant

Are you part of an educational institution that is working on a project at the cutting edge of technology and research? The Formlabs Education Grant is an opportunity for educational labs to receive a Form 2 for their research facility by sharing a project that will benefit from the use of a 3D printer.

There are no limits to the applications of 3D printing in research. Our customers in education are using the Form 2 to push research boundaries by creating 3D models, prototypes, and custom tools that would otherwise be too costly or complex to produce. For example, researchers from the Indiana University School of Dentistry who specialize in maxillofacial prosthetics used the Form 2 to create an artificial jaw for a cancer survivor. Researchers at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne used the Form 2 and electroplating technology to create a macroscopic beam splitter that allowed them to study molecular interactions at -273.15 °C.

This grant is open to all accredited educational institutions in any department. Submit a detailed project outline or proposal that your lab is working on to be considered.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: We are accepting rolling applications and will award the grant to approximately one lab or educational facility per quarter.
