Meet the Form 3

Watch our walkthrough of the Form 3 and LFS 3D printing.

Low Force Stereolithography (LFS)™ uses a flexible tank and linear illumination to deliver groundbreaking print quality and printer reliability.

Pinpoint

Precision

The custom-designed Light Processing Unit (LPU) inside the printer uses a compact system of lenses and mirrors to deliver accurate, repeatable prints.

Crisp, clean features: 
The high-power-density laser is passed through a spatial filter to guarantee a clean laser spot.

Consistent printing: 
A parabolic mirror ensures that the laser prints perpendicular to the build plane, ensuring uniform print quality across the entire build platform.

Faster than ever: 
A high frequency galvanometer offers precise control and high speed.

Nonstop

Printing

The Form 3 constantly monitors print performance so you can focus on bringing your most creative ideas to life. Integrated sensors help maintain ideal print conditions and send you alerts about the state of your machine.

Closed-loop calibration:
Optical sensors continuously correct for scale and power, and can even detect dust.

Hassle-free materials management: 
Switch between materials in seconds with a simple cartridge system.

User-replaceable components:
The Light Processing Unit, resin tank, rollers, and optics window can be replaced in-house, reducing the need for replacement printer shipments.

Grows With

Your Business

Start with one 3D printer or many, and add capacity as demand grows. Use the same tool through prototyping and into production and easily expand into new applications.

Industrial quality for all:
The Form 3 offers industrial capabilities at a fraction of the price of traditional industrial machines.

Get started now: 
Formlabs 3D printers are ready to plug and print right out of the box, no specialized training required.

Avoid delays: 
Bringing production in-house with the Form 3 provides the fast turnaround time and flexibility you need to scale.

Design
Design your model in standard CAD software and import an STL or OBJ file into our PreForm print preparation software.
Print
Send prints over WiFi, reprint previous jobs, and manage your print queue with ease with the printer’s intuitive touchscreen interface.
Post-Process
Easily tear away fine-touch supports after printing, then transfer parts to Form Wash and Form Cure for simplified rinsing and post-curing.

One Platform, 20+ Materials

Switch seamlessly between a library of general purpose and specialty resins with a cross-compatible cartridge system.

The Perfect Finish

Form Wash and Form Cure streamline and automate rinsing and post-curing of prints. Consistently produce high-quality results with less time and effort.
