MIT Media Lab startup Formlabs has launched their new desktop stereo lithography 3D printer. This is the first commercially available true stereo lithography printer offered to a hobbyist or small company market. Unlike other resin printers that we have seen in the past, this machine does not use a projector to cure the resin but instead uses a laser to do the job. We are looking forward to seeing these bots in the wild but if you can’t wait to get your hands on one, head on over to their kickstarter to be one of the first to own one.
September is here and it brings our third meeting on Wednesday September 12th. This time Matt Donley of MasterSketchup.com is taking the reigns to give everyone an introduction to one of the most popular tools for getting started in 3D design. Even if you are a whiz at Sketchup Matt is sure to have some tips to help you take your design to the next level. This meeting like always is free and open to the public. Things will get started around 7pm with plenty of time to hang out and discuss everything going on in the 3d printing world after the presentation.
