Form 3


The Form 3 by Formlabs uses advanced Low Force Stereolithography (LFS)™ technology that delivers consistently incredible part accuracy and surface quality.

The Form 3 uses Low Force Stereolithography (LFS) Technology

Low Force Stereolithography (LFS) 3D printing uses a flexible tank and linear illumination to deliver outstanding surface quality and print accuracy. Lower print forces allow for light-touch support structures that tear away with ease. This process opens up possibilities for future development of advanced, production-ready materials.

Inside the Form 3 is a redesigned optics engine, the Light Processing Unit (LPU), which contains a system of lenses and mirrors that delivers accurate, repeatable prints. Within the LPU, a galvanometer positions the high-density laser beam in the Y direction, passes it through a spatial filter, and directs it to a fold mirror and parabolic mirror to consistently deliver the beam perpendicular to the build plane.

Compatibility, Benefits, and Maintenance

The Form 3 uses the same resin cartridge system as the Form 2. The Form 3 and Form 2 use the same build platform and are both compatible with Form Wash and Form Cure.

With the new Remote Print function, you now can start your prints from anywhere. In the rare case something does go wrong, the system is built for easy maintenance. The Light Processing Unit, resin tank, rollers, and optical window are replaceable in-house to prevent the need for replacement printer shipments. Improved failure detection and handling means you can experiment with confidence.
