Flawless, Accurate Prints
Updated: Nov 28, 2019
Scale prototyping and production as your business grows with the Formlabs Form 3, an affordable, industrial-quality 3D printer that consistently delivers flawless prints, every time.
Formlabs has completely re-engineered resin-based 3D printing to drastically reduce the forces of the print process with advanced Low Force Stereolithography (LFS) technology which uses a flexible tank and linear illumination to deliver groundbreaking print quality and printer reliability. It uses a compact system of lenses and mirrors to deliver accurate, repeatable prints.
In order to guarantee a clean laser spot, the high-power-density laser is passed through a spatial filter. To ensure that the laser prints perpendicular to the build plane, there is a parabolic mirror ensuring uniform print quality across the entire build platform.
Precise control and high speed is offered by a high frequency galvanometer, which makes it faster than ever.
Integrated sensors help send alerts about the state of your machine and maintain ideal print conditions, meaning constant monitoring by the Form 3. The closed-loop calibration means that optical sensors continuously correct for scale and power and can also detect dust.
For hassle-free materials management, switch between materials in seconds with a simple cartridge system.
The form 3 offers industrial capabilities at a fraction of the price of traditional industrial machines. Get started now, as Formlabs 3D printers are ready to plug and print right out of the box, no specialized training required. Design your model in standard CAD software and import an STL or OBJ file into their PreForm print preparation software.
Send prints over WiFi, reprint previous jobs, with the printer’s intuitive touchscreen interface, manage your print queue with ease. Easily tear away fine-touch supports after printing, then transfer parts to Form Wash and Form Cure for simplified rinsing and post-curing.
Switch seamlessly between a library of general purpose and specialty resins (20+) with a cross-compatible cartridge system.
