Techcrunch talked with Maxim Lobovsky, co-founder of Formlabs, about their Form 1 printer, a stereolithographic system that could achieve higher resolution and accuracy. Formlabs raised almost $3 million from their Kickstarter campaign but right after the big success, 3D Systems announced that it has brought lawsuit against Formlabs and Kickstarter for infringement of one of its patents relating to the stereolithography process. 3D Systems sued that Formlabs violated claims 1 and 23 of United States Patent No. 5,597,520 "Simultaneous multiple layer curing in stereolithography."
3D Systems launched their new Cube and CubeX 3D printers at CES 2013. In the video below engadget discussed the promise of at-home 3D printing with the company's CEO Avi Reichental.
