Keynote
Scaling Digital Fabrication
Digital computing has scaled exponentially for 50 years, from one to one trillion connected devices. Digital fabrication is now undergoing the same kind of scaling. I will compare parallels in these histories, and look ahead to 50 years of exponential improvement in its performance, access, and impact. ‍Neil Gershenfeld MIT, FAB FOUNDATION
Panel Discussion
Scaling Impact
A 3D printer company, A software company, A manufacturer. These ecosystem players for digital manufacturing are the best in class for driving access to their technology by making things cheaper and easier. But ultimately we're dependent on bold users of these solutions, like Northwell Health, to scale impact across industries and regions. Join this crew in conversation to explore what's possible now that wasn't 10 years ago? What are current user barriers to these solutions? And most importantly for our users, how do we connect the dots between the ecosystem and community to scale impact on the world at large?

Keynote
What’s Ahead for Formlabs
As 3D printing secures its place at the forefront of digital manufacturing and low-volume production, we’ll delve into new applications and explore future possibilities. How do these dynamics affect Formlabs users across industries? Uncover the state of additive manufacturing today and get a sneak peek at where it’s going.
Workshop
Formlabs Materials Behind The Scenes
Go behind the scenes with Formlabs’ in-house materials science team to learn about how we develop resins for the Form 2. We’ll start with a live demo of how resins are made and how to optimize properties during post-processing, then share stories about the development of Durable, High Temp, Grey, and Ceramic Resins from the scientists behind these materials.
Panel
Scaling “Customized”: Going from One to Many
Conversations about 3D printing often focus on the unit—the end product or part. A digital factory, however, centers around producing many units. This panel is about scaling beyond the unit, while still maintaining the freedom that digital fabrication offers; the ability to produce both many, and unique, parts. Panelists will explore various perspectives on scaling the production of customized units, from short runs of art and engineering pieces to mass fabrication of unique consumer products at multinational companies like New Balance. We’ll also discuss scaling on the organizational level, taking examples from companies built around digital fabrication that have replicated and grown.
Panel
Democratizing Digital Workflows
The most powerful technology is often the most inaccessible. It’s too expensive, has a high learning curve, and isn’t built to mesh with existing processes. How can you achieve the same high-quality output and value that cutting-edge tech offers, without the barriers? Meet two experts invested in translating technology for the real-world, changing the way professionals use these tools while dramatically increasing ROI and leading the way toward adoption and integration of digital workflows in dentistry and medicine.
User Presentation
Industry Vignettes
Gain insight and inspiration from across disciplines in this series of lightning talks. Industry leaders from engineering, modelmaking, and product design in manufacturing, education, jewelry, dentistry, and medicine will share their thoughts about the state of their respective industries and how they’re challenging the status quo and transforming their workflows.
