Form 3

Scale prototyping and production as your business grows with the Form 3, an affordable, industrial-quality 3D printer that consistently delivers.

With advanced Low Force Stereolithography (LFS)™ technology, Formlabs has completely re-engineered resin-based 3D printing to drastically reduce the forces of the print process.  Low Force Stereolithography (LFS)™ uses a flexible tank and linear illumination to deliver groundbreaking print quality and printer reliability.

Features of the Form 3 include:

  • 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.  This provides for three distinct advantages:

    • 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.  This provides for three distinct advantages:
    • 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.
       

Technical specs for the Form 3:​

  • XY Resolution - 0.001in

  • Laser Power - 250mW

  • Layer Thickness - 0.001 - 0.012in

  • Build Volume - 5.7 × 5.7 × 7.3in

Form 3L

The Form 3L is an affordable large format 3D printer trusted by professionals for fast turnaround of industrial-quality parts.

With advanced Low Force Stereolithography (LFS)™ technology, Formlabs has completely re-engineered resin-based 3D printing to drastically reduce the forces of the print process.  Low Force Stereolithography (LFS)™ uses a flexible tank and linear illumination to deliver groundbreaking print quality and printer reliability.

Features of the Form 3L include:

  • Twice the Laser Power - Two staggered Light Processing Units (LPUs) inside the printer use a compact system of lenses and mirrors to deliver accurate, repeatable prints.  This provides for three distinct advantages:

    • Faster printing: The two LPUs work simultaneously along an optimized print path to efficiently blaze through parts of all sizes.

    • Crisp, clean features: Each high-density laser passes through a spatial filter to guarantee a clean laser spot.

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

  • Nonstop Printing - Integrated sensors help maintain ideal print conditions and send you alerts about the state of your machine.  This provides for three distinct advantages:
    • High material capacity: The Form 3L can hold two easy-to-switch resin cartridges, preventing interruptions during large print jobs.

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

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

Technical specs for the Form 3:​

  • XY Resolution - 0.001in

  • Laser Power - 250mW

  • Layer Thickness - 0.001 - 0.012in

  • Build Volume (inches) - 11.8h × 13.2w × 7.9d

Formlabs Form 3L
Form Wash

As mentioned above, all SLA parts require isopropyl alcohol (IPA) rinsing for the best results and mechanical properties.  While this can be done manually, why net let the Formlabs Form Wash do it automatically for you?  Parts travel straight from the Form 3 to Form Wash. Opt to go glove-free and keep parts directly on the build platform.

Simply set the appropriate time and let Form Wash get to work.  While you’re away, parts are precisely agitated in IPA, getting every nook and cranny perfectly clean.

Once washing completes, Form Wash automatically lifts parts out of the IPA, avoiding over-soaked, warped prints. Parts air dry and are ready when you are.

Wash stats:

  • Approximate wash time when using fresh IPA - 15 minutes

  • IPA volume for removable wash bucket - 8.6 liters

  • Amount of prints per IPA refill in regular use - 70 prints

Included with the Form Wash:

  • Hydrometer - A custom hydrometer tool to check IPA saturation.

  • Storage - Behind the wash bucket to keep finishing tools tidy.

  • Siphon pump - Easy IPA transfer into and out of the wash bucket.

Form Cure

Form Cure is finely tuned to bring parts to their maximum mechanical properties.

Form Cure’s turntable rotates to provide uniform exposure.  The heating system preheats the chamber to get parts ready for optimum post-curing.

Once the chamber is heated, 13 LEDs trigger the post-curing reaction, bringing parts to their maximum mechanical properties.  Once time is up, parts are fully cured and ready for peak performance.

How it works:

  • 80° C - An advanced heating system precisely controls curing temperatures up to 80° C

  • 405 nanometers - 13 multi-directional LEDs emit the optimal wavelength of light for curing Formlabs materials

  • 1 revolution per minute - A rotating turntable provides uniform exposure during post-curing

Materials

Unlike many 3D printer manufacturers, Formlab offers many materials for a variety of applications:

  • Standard resins - ​Outstanding performance. Excellent detail.  Custom-formulated to deliver the highest-quality output, their Standard Resins capture astonishing detail without sacrificing strength.

  • Engineering resins - Functional prototyping materials.  Formlabs' Engineering Resins are formulated to help you reduce costs and iterate faster, and include: Grey Pro, Rigid, Durable, Tough, Flexible, and High Temp.  Whether you’re optimizing your manufacturing process, rapidly iterating through designs, or assessing form and fit, the Engineering Resins are formulated to withstand extensive testing and perform under stress.

  • Draft resins - Prints three to four times faster than other Standard Resins. The material is named for its ability to print large parts quickly and cycle through multiple design iterations (or “drafts”) within one day. With a 300 micron layer height, it’s accurate enough to meet prototyping needs while enabling faster design iterations.

  • Jewelry resins - Prototype impressive concept models and manufacture distinctive pieces with sharp resolution and the best surface finish on the market, from idea to fitting to casting.

  • Dental resins - Formlabs Dental Resins enable high precision, low-cost digital production of a range of dental products in-house, including surgical guides, orthodontic models, retainers, and aligners.

  • Ceramic resin - Parts 3D printed in silica-filled Ceramic Resin can be fired to create a fully ceramic piece. This experimental Form X material requires more trial and error than other Formlabs products.

  • Elastic resin - This 50A Shore durometer material is suitable for prototyping parts normally produced with silicone. Choose Elastic Resin for parts that will bend, stretch, compress, and hold up to repeated cycles without tearing.  Key applications include wearables and consumer goods prototyping; medical visual simulation and devices; compliant features for robotics; and special effects props and models.
