The Form 1 3D printer
A product of a group from MIT, and subject of a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign, the Form 1 uses laser-drawn resin, as opposed to ABS or PLA plastic like the other 3D printers. The result, its inventors claim, is higher-resolution, more-professional-looking prints, for a similar price as the other desktop 3D printers.
