FormLabs starts shipping the Form1 3D Printer — With Clear Resin

Following its precedent-setting Kickstarter campaign last year, FormLabs started shipping the Form 1 SL 3D printer on Friday last.

This initial shipment saw the Collector’s Edition Form 1 printers and half of the Initial Formation tier of pledges leave the production facility, with Kickstarter backers due to start seeing their Form 1’s by the end of next week.

The Form 1 3D printers are behind the original schedule but this is hardly surprising considering the scale-up that was necessary to meet the demand. As a result, Form 1 have kept communication channels open and have maintained positive support from the community. As the 3D printers start to ship, they are grateful for ongoing support: “We especially appreciate your patience and encouragement as we fell behind our original delivery schedule. Fortunately, the hard work and many extra hours from the Formlabs team will make the average Form 1 only a few months late…. As our production ramps and we have accurate data on our steady state production capacity, we will share more precise dates for each group of printer deliveries.” (You will receive a personal confirmation e-mail the day your unit ships).
