    3D Systems v. Formlabs Patent Lawsuit Dismissed

    The lawsuit between Formlabs and 3D Systems relating to stereolithography has been dismissed with prejudice, a move that frees Formlabs to make their printers without fear of further patent problems. 3D Systems first sued Formlabs back in 2012 for patent infringement related to their laser-based stereolithography techniques. In the interim, the company has grown to 100 people and has released… Read More

    Back To The Magic With The Formlabs Form 1+

    One of my favorite 3D printers has been the Formlabs Form 1. Using a unique technology in home printing, stereolithography, the Formlabs folks have created a usable, fun, and surprisingly versatile home 3D printer that produces pro-quality pats. Now that printer has gotten better. First, a bit of explanation that I added to my original Form 1 review. The $3,299 Form 1+ is a… Read More

    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

    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

    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

    Fly Or Die: Form 1 3D Printer

    Early leader in the 3D printing space Makerbot may have just been acquired for $400 million, but we still can’t forget about the Form 1 3D printer out of FormLabs. It started as a Kickstarter project, which received 6x its $100,000 goal in just one day, topping $1.4 million in one week. Since, we’ve had the chance to review it and pit it against the Makerbot.

    Living In The Future With The Formlabs Form 1

    “The future is already here — it’s just not very evenly distributed,” wrote William Gibson. He’s right. Luckily, the future is mostly in my attic workshop. I’ve been lucky enough to have access to a Form 1 3D printer for the past week and have come away with a better sense of the platform, the way forward of 3D printing in general and Form 1 in particular.
