Founded in 2011, and became a unicorn company in 2018, Formlabs is one of the leading 3D printer manufacturers in the world.

Software is at the heart of all aspects of Formlabs products. We aim to bring innovative 3D printers to the desks and shops of designers, artists, and professionals the world over.
