Well its fast approaching 2020, and one is left thinking what the new year will hold. It’s a family tradition here to write a new year wish list and to then review it on the following New Years Eve – just to see how much of the wish list became a reality.
So, my personal wish list for 2020
1: The Form 3 being finished, beta testing (by customers paying for the privilege) over and finally the Form 3 becoming a really special printer that’s reliable, and offers the same degree of material selection and resins as the Form 2 (INCLUDING the option to use third party resins via an “open” mode) but with a bigger build volume than the Form 2.
2: Formlabs to realise it killed a valuable income stream when it decided to discontinue the Form2
3: Formlabs to either continue manufacturing / supporting the Form 2, or to offer it to a third party company to produce / maintain under a commercial licence (Hint – surely this makes good commercial sense? especially with a company with perhaps greater skills and experience in producing electro mechanical products consistently with cost efficiency)
4: Formlabs to release a new and improved wash / cure station.
