Formlabs is a Somerville, Massachusetts-based company that was founded in September 2011. Formlabs designs and manufactures desktop 3D printers, and is well known for raising nearly $3 million in a Kickstarter campaign and creating the Form 1 and Form 2 3D printers. Formlabs was founded by Maxim Lobovsky, Natan Linder, and David Cranor, who met as students at the MIT Media Lab while taking the 'How to Make (almost) Anything' class. The founders also drew on their experience with MIT’s Center for Bits and Atoms Fab Lab program, as well as Lobovskys experience with the Fab@Home project at Cornell University. Formlabs was officially founded in September 2011 to develop an easy-to-use and affordable desktop stereolithography 3D printer. Formlabs received early seed funding from investors including Mitch Kapor, Joi Ito, and Eric Schmidt’s Innovation Endeavors.
