The Form 1 Ships!

By on May 18th, 2013 in Event, printer


Formlabs has now shipped its first actual production units of their breakthrough resin-based personal 3D printer, the Form 1. 
The USD$3,299 high-resolution device was launched on Kickstarter some months ago and raised close to USD$3M, a record amount for a technology item. Based on this alone, the Form 1 is a highly desired machine and soon people will finally get their hands on it. 
We’re anxious to see reports of user reactions to the Form 1. While it’s clear that the machine does work, we don’t know much about the reliability, software ease of use, resin lifetime or other longer-term usability features. 
For those of you that are fortunate to receive one, please let us know how your experience goes.
