Bunnie’s Form 1 Printer Teardown



Andrew “bunnie” Huang backed Formlabs’ 2012 Kickstarter for the Form 1 liquid resin (SLA) printer and just scored a pre-release beta unit through his connect with Neoteny Labs.

Fun fact: the Form 1 actually contains four motors. Before clicking through, can you guess what they’re for?

[Thanks, bunnie!]
