3D Systems (DDD) is receiving some bad PR in the tech press after suing popular crowd-funding platform Kickstarter for promoting a 3D printer that allegedly infringes one of 3D's patents. The printer in question was developed by startup Formlabs, which raised $2.9M via Kickstarter to build it, and the patent in question relates to improving the quality of products made using a printing technique known as stereolithography.
