Lizz Hill x Formlabs
In September, 2019, Lizz made the jump from fashion to 3D printing by joining the Business Development team at Formlabs, the leader in Desktop SLA 3D printing.
In her new role, Lizz is responsible for creating new partnership opportunities across industries to drive both Formlabs and various industry leaders forward, developing new 3D printing solutions for applications within manufacturing, prototyping/sampling, supply chain and consumer goods production.
Lizz is always looking for opportunities to speak at events and conferences around fashion, product design, women in tech and 3D printing and would love to hear from you if you're interested in partnering with her.
Lizz (Hill) Wiker grew up in the Pacific Northwest where she spent her days learning, crafting, designing and making. Her long time love of textiles and sewing led her to New York where she pursued an education in Textile Development and Marketing and Accessories Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology.
Lizz holds a full-time role as a Director at Tapestry, Inc (formerly Coach) and oversees the team responsible for the technical design and 3D prototyping of hardware and jewelry for the brands under Tapestry (Coach, Kate Spade and Stuart Weitzman.)

Need a little technical help? Hire Me!
Need help bringing your design idea to life? I specialize in rigid or organic 3D models of jewelry and hardware and have a strong background in metal (zinc and brass) manufacturing.
I'm a full-time 3D modeler and manage the 3D print lab for a major American handbag company, based in New York City. I'm responsible for the technical development of the company's hardware, jewelry and other related products. I hold a B.F.A. in Accessories Design from the Fashion Institute of Technology and have worked in the fashion industry for the past 10 years.
I can work from sketches, finished drawings, photos, and off of existing parts or other real-life references. I price projects by the hour and my quote includes your rights to the final model and high-quality (non-watermarked) renderings. I can offer guidance on manufacture-ability or 3D print-ability to ensure your design meets the requirements for your desired end-use.
