Form 3 and Form 3L

Formlabs launched yesterday at Hannover Messe two advanced professional Low Force Stereolithography (LFS) 3D printers to its hardware lineup: Form 3 and Form 3L.

LFS 3D printing, this new approach of stereolithography (SLA) uses a flexible tank to drastically reduce the forces of the peel process, providing accurate surface finish and detail as well as repeatable parts.

In addition to these features, we also note that the integrated tear-away supports enable an easy clean-up and smoother parts, the sensors help maintain ideal print conditions and send you alerts about the state of your machine and the possibility to remote print via the online Dashboard.

The new 3D printers have been launched alongside a new material ideal for rapid prototyping, Draft Resin, that prints at 300 microns layer lines.

 “We’ve completely re-engineered our approach to resin 3D printing with the Low Force Stereolithography (LFS) print process behind the Form 3 and Form 3L,” said Max Lobovsky, CEO and co-founder of Formlabs. “We entered the industry seven years ago (…) and since then we have shipped more than 50 thousand printers, and our customers have printed more than 40 million parts. We’re excited to take another huge leap forward with LFS 3D printing, dramatically improving the print quality and reliability people can expect (..).
