The Digital Factory and FUSE: Two New Events this June

After five years of trials, tribulations, and learning, Formlabs has transitioned from scrappy crowdfunded startup to thriving global tech company, and we have you to thank for standing by us and pushing our products to the limit!

In celebration of the community around our 3D printers and the people who’ve influenced and inspired us as we’ve built them, we’re excited to announce that we’re hosting two events this summer. The Digital Factory, on June 5, is a conference about the future of digital manufacturing. FUSE, on June 6, is our first user conference, where the people using our printers can hear from industry leaders and share expertise. Both of these events will take place at the MIT Media Lab in Cambridge, MA.
