Form 1+ wird eingestellt?


Ich habe von einem Wiederverkäufer schriftlich erfahren, dass die Form1 Serie Mitte nächsten Jahres eingestellt wird.
“als Kunde für Formlabs Form 1 Produkte möchten wir Sie darüber informieren, dass Formlabs seine Produktion für die Form 1 Serie mittelfristig einstellen wird. Es werden bis voraussichtlich Mitte nächsten Jahres (2018) noch vereinzelte Restbestände an Verbrauchsmaterialien verfügbar sein, eine regelmäßige und zeitnahe Versorgung mit erforderlichen Druckmaterialien können wir jedoch nicht garantieren.”

Stimmt das so?

The Form 1 series was discontinued already (they made the announcement earlier this year) as for consumables, resin in bottles will be available for as long as they have stock, which will probably be earlier than mid next year, but it doesn’t really matter, since you can just buy the Form 2 cartridges, and pour the resin directly into the tank.

The only consumable that may be a problem is the tank itself, however, there are third party manufacturers that make Form 1/1+ compatible tanks, or you could learn how to recoat the tank yourself.

So as you can see, we’re not completely left without any supplies.

One serious concern will be repair parts. There may come a time in the near future when FormLabs will not be able to repair, or provide repair parts for the printer. Hopefully your printer will keep on going without problems.
