Major 3D Printing Milestone: Stereo Lithography Devices at a Consumer Price-Point
The Form 1 is a desktop-sized machine that creates professional-grade, light-cured 3-D prints, Wired reports.
Their prototype units are fully functional and Formlabs will finance manufacturing via a Kickstarter campaign that broke their $100,000 target in 2.5 hours. Initial backers will be able to pre-order the Form 1 for $2,299 (only 25 will be available at this price); additional units are priced at $2499 and $2699, based on order of contribution. Actual market pricing has not yet been released.
