The Next Generation of Industrial 3D Printing

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.

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

 

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.
