"Form 1 is ?a high resolution 3D printer at low cost? as the promotional video states. The first 25 backers gobbled up the device for $2,299, the next 100 claimed one for $2,499, and the current price of $2,699 is still available."
Best, Steve

Even at almost $3K a pop 3D printers get amazing backing on Kickstarter! I've watched three of those so far - one extruder type and two UV-cured resin types and they all go over the $ goal by a factor of 10, and one was pushing 30 times the stated goal. Is this not the right time for HP or Lexmark etc. to notice a new market?

Well, they are currently selling ink at about $20,000.00 a gallon. They will have to figure out a way to mark up the resin by a factor of about 100,000 X before they get interested. They are not in the business of making printers, only installing free ink sales terminals.
