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 footprint, with dimensions of 15.9"L x 14.8"D x 20.9"H (40.5L x 37.5D x 53cm).  Quicker print times are 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. The Build platform (5.7" x 5.7") can fit approximately 60 women's rings or other small parts (Ex. 1" x 1/4"). Print times depend on the complexity of the item and the resin used. 

The package does not include a resin cartridge, it needs to be purchased separately, please see the chart. For jewelers, we recommend purchasing the Grey Resin (262-0240) to produce models for your customers to try on during their design phase. Then use the Castable Wax resin for a model for casting. For industrial customers, several standard or engineering resins are available, please see the chart. 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. An extended warranty is available to extend the Form 3 printer (machine and parts) to two years. Please consider adding the Pro Service Plan (PSP) for one or two years (see related products). The Pro Service Plan provides customized training session, phone support, hot swap (repair or replacement) and priority email support. See related products for more information. Form 3 weighs 17.5kg (38.5lbs). Made in China.


  • For commissioned parts, use durable Standard Resins (see related products for all Standard Resins) to create excitement and deliver peace of mind to your clients with prototypes they can touch.
  • Quicker Print Time - Build Platform does not have a release after each layer, thus quicker process.
  • Finer Print Details - Laser Spot Size 40% smaller, ensuring accurate, repeatable prints.
  • Export .stl or .obj files from PreForm Software to get your design ready for printing.
  • Perpendicular printing provides crisp, clean edges on your prints.
  • Remote Printing - Print your files overnight or when not in office. Allows users to start printing process via internet connection.
  • 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.
  • Soft release from a flexible resin tank enables clean up by requiring small and minimal supporting.
