One of the most anticipated 3D printers to be funded on Kickstarter, the Form1, was originally launched with Grey Resin, however for reasons unknown it was replaced with clear on the first machines that shipped. But today FormLabs have announced that Grey Resin is now available
Similar to the clear resin provide by FormLabs, the grey resin has properties engineered for fine detail and functional prototyping. Grey’s tensile strength and Young’s Modulus are similar to that of ABS plastic when post cured. The neutral color allows you to carefully inspect fine details and the matte finish is suitable for immediate presentation or to serve as a base for painting.
Grey Resin is available for purchase from the Form Store for $149 and will start shipping in three weeks.
That said we’re still waiting on our Form1 which we backed on Kickstarter to actually ship so we don’t really have a need for any resin no matter the colour until FormLabs actually ship machines outside of America. FormLabs… are you listening?
