3D printing materials startup MadeSolid announced the launch of their crowd funding campaign aimed at developing and launching a new line of resins designed specifically for consumer SLA printers.



Founded in 2013, MadeSolid Inc. is a startup specializing in 3D printing materials based in Oakland, California. For the past three months, chemists and engineers at MadeSolid have been working on developing resins compatible with FormLabs' Form1 printer, in addition to designing formulations for other printers, such as the B9 Creator and the Muve3D.

Recently, the company sent samples of the newly created resin to Form 1 users around the country. Here are some of their results:

The Company hopes that a successful crowdfunding campaign will make those materials available to the rest of the FormLabs community, as well as to users of other SLA printers.

On indiegogo the early bird offer, $250 for 6 liters of MS Resin is gone. The MS Resin is now priced at $285 for 3 liters.

Speaking about the company's experience with SLA printing, Lance Pickens, MadeSolid's CEO, said, "We were frustrated with the limited range of materials available for our SLA printers, and decided that we could apply our expertise to do something about it. Right now the options for SLA-compatible resins are limited to just a few sources and only a handful of materials and colors from each. With the launch of our line of resins for printers like the Form1, we hope to expand what people are capable of doing with these incredible machines."

Thanks to Pete for the tip!
