Form 3B Printer Package
Form 3B Printer
Low Force Stereolithography (LFS)™ 3D printing uses linear illumination and a flexible tank to turn liquid resin into flawless prints. This advanced form of stereolithography drastically reduces peel forces to provide groundbreaking print quality and printer reliability.
The custom-designed Light Processing Unit (LPU) inside the printer uses a compact system of lenses and mirrors to deliver accurate, repeatable prints. The highpower-density laser is passed through a spatial filter to guarantee a clean laser spot.
Formlabs Form Wash
Simply set the appropriate time and let Form Wash get to work. Form wash takes approximately 15 minutes when using fresh isopropyl alcohol (IPA)
While you’re away, parts are precisely agitated in IPA, giving a perfect clean leading to a consistent, automated workflow. With an 8.6L IPA volume removable wash bucket, 70 prints can be cured per IPA refill with regular use. Once washing completes, parts are automatically lifted out of the IPA, avoiding over-soaked, warped prints. Parts air dry and are ready when you are.
Form Cure is finely tuned to bring parts to their maximum mechanical properties with an advanced heating system precisely controlling curing temperatures up to 80° C. 13 multi-directional LEDs emit the optimal wavelength of light for curing Formlabs materials and a rotating turntable provides uniform exposure during post-curing
For Standard Resins, simply use Form Cure’s default time and temperature. For all other materials, use unique recommended settings for optimum performance.
The heating system preheats the chamber to get parts ready for optimum post-curing. Once the chamber is heated, 13 LEDs trigger the post-curing reaction, bringing parts to their maximum mechanical properties. Once time is up, parts are fully cured and ready for peak performance.
The Form 2 Finish Kit is included when you order a Form 2, but is also available for individual purchase. Interested in an automated cleaning process? Learn more about Form Wash.
