An Affordable 3D Printer for DesignersWednesday, October 10, 2012
Formlabs has created an affordable high-resolution 3D printer that fits on a desk. The 3D printer, titled “Form 1″ combines high-end stereolithography technology and a seamless user experience at a price affordable for professional designers and engineers.
The Form 1 has the ability to print layers as thin as 25 microns with features as small as 300 microns in a build volume of 125 x 125 x 165 mm. Formlabs has also designed intuitive software that provides a quick and easy process to print.
Even though the printer is currently a concept, the Form 1 has already received over $1.8 million in funding on Kickstarter, which is well over the team’s original goal of $100,000.
