Formlabs announced today that it has raised another $30 million in Series C funding led by Tyche Partners. This latest round includes participation from Shenzhen Capital Group and UpNorth Investment Limited, as well as existing investors DFJ, Pitango and Foundry Group. The Series C round puts the Somerville, Massachusetts-based 3D printing company’s total funding to $85 million.

The company says the investment will be used to broaden Formlabs’ product portfolio, and scale operations to meet increasing customer demand worldwide, particularly in China and Asia. Formlabs already has a strong established presence in the U.S. and European markets, with more than 300 employees in the U.S., 100 in Europe and employees in China and Japan. This next phase in growth will accelerate maturation in those markets.

“For many years, China has been catching up in manufacturing capabilities to the U.S. and Europe, but recently it has matched or surpassed in many areas," said Max Lobovsky, co-founder and CEO of Formlabs. "Chinese manufacturers will be critical to figuring out how to adopt 3D printing into higher volume manufacturing applications.”

“Formlabs is leading the transformation of the 3D printing industry and is dominating the desktop SLA market with the largest market share worldwide,” said Weijie Yun, Founding partner of Tyche Partners. “We’re excited to invest and participate in the growth of the company’s future as their product portfolio expands from SLA to SLS and penetrates the industrial 3D printer market.”

This announcement comes ahead of Formlabs’ headquarters expansion in Somerville, MA where it will soon be opening a new 18,000 square foot facility to add to its growing campus headquarters.
