PALO ALTO, CA, October 17, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- 3D printing materials startup MadeSolid Inc. (www.MadeSolid.com) formally announced the launch of their crowd funding campaign today aimed at developing and launching a new line of resins designed specifically for consumer SLA printers.---

Founded in 2013, MadeSolid Inc. is a startup specializing in 3D printing materials based in Oakland, California. For the past three months, chemists and engineers at MadeSolid have been working on developing resins compatible with FormLabs' Form1 printer, in addition to designing formulations for other printers, such as the B9 Creator and the Muve3D.
Recently, the Company sent samples of the newly created resin to Form 1 users around the country, who were able to print in colors and materials not previously available. By paying particular attention to the chemistry they have chosen to implement, MadeSolid Resin works seamlessly with the Form 1 without any tweaking of the FormLabs software, printer, or CAD files. The Company hopes that a successful crowdfunding campaign will make those materials available to the rest of the FormLabs community, as well as to users of other SLA printers.
Speaking about the company's experience with SLA printing, Lance Pickens, MadeSolid's CEO, said, "We were frustrated with the limited range of materials available for our SLA printers, and decided that we could apply our expertise to do something about it. Right now the options for SLA-compatible resins are limited to just a few sources and only a handful of materials and colors from each. With the launch of our line of resins for printers like the Form1, we hope to expand what people are capable of doing with these incredible machines."
Through crowdfunding via its IndieGogo campaign, MadeSolid is looking to bring colors like black, white, blue, and pink to users of the Form1 and other consumer-grade printers. The company has plans for further development of high-quality, functional materials for the SLA and FDM market.
MadeSolid wants to push the envelope with what is possible with 3D printing. The 3D printing industry is saturated with people focusing on the hardware and software problems, but no one is tackling the issue of how to make better materials. We take the hard work out of 3D printing, and provide the best materials in the world, whether you have a MakerBot, Ultimaker, FormLabs or B9 Creator 3D printer.
