Formlabs Form 3 3D Printer


The next generation in 3D printing from Formlabs, introducing the Form 3. With the innovated technology of Low Force Stereolithography (LFS), 3D printing now can balance detail and speed, giving you finer print detail and quicker print times. The optical system, with a laser spot 40% smaller, sustains a precise denser laser spot to ensure accurate, repeatable prints. Perpendicular printing provides crisp edges on prints. Clean-up is made easier with tear-away, light-touch supports so the parts have a smoother finish. Another added feature is Remote Printing. For those who want their printing to be done overnight or they are not in the office, as soon as you have files ready, Remote Printing allows users to start the printer via internet connection

The fully self-contained Light Processing Unit (LPU) was designed for ease of maintenance. It is modular and user-replaceable for service in the field.

The Form 3 has a small foot print, with dimensions of 40.5L x 37.5D x 53Hcm (15.9” x 14.8” x 20.9”). Quicker print times achieved due to the resins not needing to be mixed between every layer. The soft release from a flexible resin tank enables easy clean up by requiring small and minimal supporting. Tight tolerancing make for better fitted parts and finer detail.

The Build platform (5.7” x 5.7”) can fit approximately 60 women's rings, for jewelers, or 60 small parts (Ex. 1" x 1/4"). Print times depend on the complexity of the item and the resin used.

The Standard Grey Resin is an opaque, matte, dark grey resin. It produces a smooth surface and crisp detail, perfect for general purpose applications from prototyping to capturing small details. Supports print resolutions of 100, 50 and 25 microns. For commissioned jewelry, use Standard Grey Resin (included) to create excitement as well as deliver peace of mind to your clients by providing prototypes they can touch and try on. Then print your jewelry using Castable Wax Resin (262-0390, sold separately, see related products). It is engineered for a smooth finish with clean edges and clean burnout; perfect for direct investment casting. Whenever you are going to use more than one resin, we recommend purchasing an additional tank (see related products) to switch resins quickly and easily.

One-year warranty on the Form 3 printer (machine and parts) is included in this package. It also comes complete with a one-year Pro Service Plan (PSP). The Pro Service Plan includes customized training session, phone support, hot swap (repair or replacement) and priority email support. See related products for more information. Weighs 17.5kg (38.5lbs). Made in China.
