|Fwd: FORM 1: An affordable, professional 3D printer by Formlabs — Kickstarter||Jerry Isdale||9/26/12 4:16 PM|
Form1 is the liquid plastic laser cured 3d printer and it went live on Kickstarter this AM with a goal of $100,000.
They already blew past that and are at $378,000+ now.
I hope they stop at some point before they wind up overselling!
At current rate they will pass $12mil in 30 days of kickstarter.
That could make production a lot harder.

Thats crazy!! I was thinking about a B9creator http://b9creator.com/ But that one looks like a viable alternative too..
I wonder if the UV laser scanner is better overall versus the DLP projector with color wheel removed (as used on B9creator).. Youd think printing a whole layer at a time might have an advantage in speed and maybe staility, and from the few close up shots Id almost say the B9 looks to have higher resolution, but really hard to compare.. What do you think?

There's a DIY solution too. Though, it's just as expensive. I saw this linked on Hacker News in the comments section: http://www.instructables.com/id/Build-a-Laser-3D-Printer-Stereolithography-at-Ho/
