The Form 3 by Formlabs is a versatile and professional 3D printer, designed for producing small, accurate and detailed prints in a variety of materials.
The Form 3 uses Low Force Stereolithography (LFS); an advanced form of stereolithography (SLA) 3D printing technology that uses linear illumination and a flexible tank to turn liquid resin into flawless prints. The resulting output are consistent, highly repeatable 3D printed parts with an excellent surface finish.
With a build size of 145mm x 145mm x 185mm, the Form 3 features a re-engineered optical system, the Light Processing Unit, which maintains a precise, dense laser spot of 85 microns for accurate prints, and uses a newly designed Form 3 Resin Tank with a flexible base. The 3D printed parts have tear-away light-touch supports, for easy clean-up.
The Form 3 uses Formlabs 1 litre resin cartridges, in a range of materials*.
Key features of the Form 3 include:
Light-touch supports, that are easy to tear away
Precise, dense laser spot size of 85 microns for accurate, detail prints
Integrated sensors to monitor and maintain conditions for consistent performance
Versatility to print in a range of resins
The Form 3 has excellent connectivity via Ethernet, Wi-Fi and USB and is compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems. The print software, PreForm allows for management of the Form 3 within teams to monitor and manage print flow.
The Form 3 is compatible with the Form Wash and Form Cure for a streamlined post-processing.
12 month manufacturer warranty included.
