FormLabs announces today that the Form 1 3D printer has entered full production.

Over the last few months, we have assembled our supply chain while carefully vetting even the smallest parts that make up the Form 1. We are ecstatic to say that after multiple rounds of improvements, component testing, and revisions, we used Kickstarter funds last month to order the tens of thousands of parts (like the displays below) needed to build more than 1,000 printers. As components continue to arrive, the Form Team is readying our production lines to get moving as fast as possible on our US factory floor.

The team will rigorously test the first small batch of Form 1s, after that, they will set exact delivery dates. Notes Formlabs. The folks there claims they are on schedule to fulfill the large majority of Kickstarter printers by the end of April.

Formlabs is one of those rare projects got a patent infringement lawsuit right after its big success on Kickstarter. FormLabs started with a $100K goal, but it ended up with over $2.9 million funding. They couldn't start production months ago, but eventually they got a green light to get their project go forward.

Great news for all the Kickstarter backers.
