Formlabs Form 3 vs. Form 2

 

Features

Low Force Stereolithography (LFS) 3D printing in the Form 3 uses linear illumination and a flexible tank to turn liquid resin into flawless prints. This advanced form of stereolithography drastically reduces peel forces to provide groundbreaking print quality and printer reliability.

 

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. 

ONE PLATFORM, 20+ MATERIALS

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

GROW WITH YOUR BUSINESS

Start with one 3D printer or many, and add capacity as demand grows. Get helpful, human service when you need it from a Form 3 expert.

 

PINPOINT PRECISION

The custom-designed Light Processing Unit (LPU) inside the Form 3 uses a compact system of lenses and mirrors to deliver accurate, repeatable prints. The high-power-density laser is passed through a spatial filter to guarantee a clean laser spot.
