3D Systems Files Patent Infringement Lawsuit Against Formlabs And Kickstarte

3D Systems Corp. (DDD) announced Tuesday that it has brought suit in the Federal District Court of South Carolina, Rock Hill division, against Formlabs Inc. of Cambridge, Massachusetts and Kickstarter, Inc. of New York, New York.

3D Systems said it is seeking injunctive relief and damages for infringement of one of its patents relating to the stereolithography process.

3D Systems' complaint asserts that the sale and use of the Form 1 3D printers sold by Formlabs and Kickstarter infringe a U.S. patent relating to stereolithography. Formlabs sold the Form 1 3D printers to backers of its Kickstarter campaign in September and October 2012.
