We’re thrilled to announce that Colin Raney will be joining Formlabs to lead our global marketing efforts. Colin joins us from IDEO, where he led their Boston studio. Colin’s been a longtime friend of Formlabs (as well as one of our earliest adopters of our 3D printer).
Formlabs Engineering Intern Ben Katz printed a 1:60 scale model of a 120 foot long wooden roller coaster which he designed, and will be building a full-sized, rideable version on the MIT campus next week.
Visit us at Siggraph 2014 – one of the world's biggest conferences on computer graphics.
We are at Booth 751 from August 12 - 14, come by and see the Form 1+ in action!
Haters of wires and cables can now rejoice! We have come up with a way to add wireless printing to your Form 1+ 3D printer with the use of 3rd Party hardware.
Rob is one of the all-star interns who’s joined the Formlabs team this summer. We took a few moments to catch up with him, as he went about his work.
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.
Jacob is one of the all-star interns who’s joined the Formlabs team this summer. We took a few moments to catch up with him, as he went about his work.
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+.
