  • The Formlabs Form 2 Brings The 3D-Printing Magic (Again)

    The Formlabs Form 2 Brings The 3D-Printing Magic (Again)

    Home 3D printing has grown by leaps and bounds over the past half decade. While some of the fluff and excitement has gone out of the technology, it is still the closest thing to magic we have in our world. The idea that we can apparate objects out of thin air, that we can convert bits to atoms is wonderfully heady stuff. When Formlabs first launched their Form 1 it was a true hack. Designed… Read More

  • Hands-On With The New Formlabs Form 2 3D Printer

    When I first turned on the original Formlabs Form 1 I knew I was in the presence of something special. This 3D printer could make amazingly detailed models using lasers and resin, a process that was at once exhilarating and, thanks to the curing process, kind of gross. Formlabs has taken a closer look at what made the original printer frustrating and smoothed out the bumps, creating one of… Read More

  • The Race To The Bottom Is Now Hitting Professional 3D Printers

    The Race To The Bottom Is Now Hitting Professional 3D Printers

    The eagle-eyed among you will notice something interesting about the Riverside Photocuring 3D Printer pictured above. Almost all of the design – from the removable build plate to the jolly front button – is a direct homage to the Formlabs Form 1. One could assume, therefore, that the Riverside should (and does) print 3D objects as well as the Form 1 and should be a comparable product. Read More

  • Join Us For A Screening Of Print The Legend, A Movie About Makerbot And Formlabs, On Sunday

    Join Us For A Screening Of Print The Legend, A Movie About Makerbot And Formlabs, On Sunday

    If you like 3D printing and you’re free on Sunday night, I’d like to take you to a movie. Print The Legend is an amazing (and dramatic) tale of Makertbot, Formlabs, and 3D printing in general. You can grab tickets right here and I’ll be leading a panel discussion afterwards with Co-Director J. Clay Tweel, Executive Producer Walter Kortschak, and Co-Producer Andrew Kortschak. Read More

  • Formlabs 3D Printing Workshop | TechCrunch Makers

    TC Makers: Making The Future With The Team At Formlabs

    A few weeks ago I visited the headquarters of Formlabs in Somerville, Mass. where I had the pleasure of meeting the entire team in their small – but growing – workshop. There I saw a repair bay, research room, and even a molecular lab where materials scientists are hard at work making new solutions for the company’s unique SLA printer. When I first met the guys from… Read More

  • Formlabs Just Made One Of The Best 3D Printers Better

    Formlabs Just Made One Of The Best 3D Printers Better

    The Formlabs Form 1 just got better. The new model, called the Form 1+ (note that this isn’t the Form 2 because then it would be called the Form 1++ (heh, nerd humor)), is a tweaked Form 1 with a faster build time, nicer styling, and a better control system to ensure smoother prints. Read More

  • Formlabs CEO Sees Boston as a Hardware Hub

    A Chat With Maxim Lobovsky, Co-Founder Of Formlabs

    I had the unique opportunity to sit down with Maxim Lobovsky, co-founder of Formlabs, when we had our meet up in Boston. While the audio was a little rough – it’s hard to handle big, happy crowds – but I think his insight on 3D printing is important. Read More

  • Boston And L.A. Pitch-Off Applications Close On Monday

    Boston And L.A. Pitch-Off Applications Close On Monday

    You have exactly four days, depending on how much sleep you require, to apply to the TechCrunch startup Pitch-Offs happening in Boston and Los Angeles on April 8 and April 10, respectively. And if some part of you is blowing me off right now, thinking that this isn’t a big deal, you’d be pretty seriously mistaken. Read More

    Martha Stewart Goes 3D Printer Shopping At CES 2014

    Interested in 3D printing and smartphone-controlled aerial drones? So is Martha Stewart. She and I had the pleasure of touring CES 2014’s South Hall, where we checked out Parrot, Form Labs, and MakerBot, among a few other companies. Read More
