Delivering form, fit and function, the Form 1+ is a tool for functional prototyping. Pictured above is a model of a single piston air engine assembly that our own Kevin Gautier created and printed on the Form 1+ 3D printer. The 10-piece model features a fully functional piston, rod, crankshaft, cam and intake valve.
Lithophanes are 3D images printed on translucent plaques that are then backlit to reveal the image. The light areas are very thin, letting through more light, while the thicker areas appear darker. Finely detailed and delicate, lithophanes are best suited for 3D printing on a high-resolution SLA printer like the Form 1+.
