The new Form 1+ 3D printer from Formlabs
Formlabs has improved the laser, reinforced the peel motor assembly, redesigned the galvanometer control system and included a light-blocking injection-molded resin tank
The Form 1+ can create layers of just 25 microns, and prints to a minimum feature size of 300 microns
Back in 2012, Boston-based Formlabs managed to attract almost US$3 million in crowdfunding for the launch of its original Form 1 SLA (stereolithographic) 3D printer, which shipped in May of the following year. Though it may look somewhat similar to its handsome predecessor, the company says that it has completely overhauled the design for its new Form 1+ high resolution desktop model, re-engineering mechanical components for improved reliability and offering users faster printing at higher quality.
