A home 3D printer to turn your ideas into real objects

A home 3D printer to turn your ideas into real objects

What is 3D Printing? An Overview. You’ve heard of 3D printing from newscasters and journalists, astonished at what they’ve witnessed. A machine reminiscent of the Star Trek Replicator, something magical that can create objects out of thin air. It can “print” in plastic, metal, nylon, and over a hundred other materials. It can be used for making nonsensical little models like the over-printed Yoda, yet it can also print manufacturing prototypes, end user products, quasi-legal guns, aircraft engine parts and even human organs using a person’s own cells. Fantastical? We live in an age that is witness to what many are calling the Third Industrial Revolution. 3D printing, more professionally called additive manufacturing, moves us away from the Henry Ford era mass production line, and will bring us to a new reality of customizable, one-off production. Need a part for your washing machine? Each of these printed layers is a thinly-sliced, horizontal cross-section of the eventual object. It Begins with a Digital File

Form1 - Kickstarter Are you frustrated that low-end 3D printers don’t have the quality to make the true beauty of your designs real? Do you dream of having the power and resolution of a truly professional machine on your desktop? We’ve created an easy-to-use system that rivals the output of high-end printers at a fraction of the cost. Our reason for starting this project is simple: there are no low-cost 3D printers that meet the quality standards of the professional designer. We’ve been hard at work for over a year, and with your help, we’re ready to take the Form 1 into full-fledged production. We’ve gone to extraordinary lengths to design a complete 3D printing experience: The Form 1 printer is engineered to produce high resolution parts with the touch of a buttonForm software is intuitive and simple to use so you can spend less time setting up prints and more time designingThe Form Finish post-processing kit keeps your desktop organized so that you can easily put the finishing touches on your masterpiece

Votre design 3D devient réalité avec l'impression 3D Form 1 - article TechCrunch The Form 1 3D printer, which you may recognize from Kickstarter, has topped $1.4 million in pre-orders in just under a week on the crowd-funding platform. With nearly 1,000 backers already, the FormLabs team has sold out of all their early-bird pledge packages, so anyone who backs the project now is only ahead of the official website sale shipments. Mad Kickstarter success always comes down to demand. Disrupt runner up gTar walked away with 3x its funding goal because it made learning the guitar fun and easy. The Form 1 is no different. There’s a massive gap, and Form 1 aims to fill it. I caught up with co-founder Maxim Lobovsky (once again) to ask about momentum. Lobovsky tells me that FormLabs is being as realistic as possible with quantity. To avoid this, the total amount that FormLabs can raise on the site is around $2.8 million, so that the company is able to ship on time to its loyal backers.
