Before I talk about the 3D printer, I have to admit I have a bit of a grudge against Formlabs. You see, back when I was writing my final anticipation in university on the accessibility of 3D printing, I asserted that while FDM 3D printing has become low cost and easy to use, other technologies such as SLA have not. Resin systems like SLA remained at multi hundred thousand dollar price points and were messy and not user-friendly. At that time, this statement held true. However, one week later in September of 2012, Formlabs dropped the Form 1 on Kickstarter – a true SLA 3D printer for under three thousand US dollars, ready to run right out of the .

But seriously, Formlabs set a new standard for affordable SLA. So, how far have they come with the Form 2, and is it really worth three and a half thousand US dollars? Well, watch to find out.
