Form 3 Characteristics
·Low Force Stereolithography (LFS) 3D printing
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 Form 3 and Form 3L constantly monitor 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.
·ONE PLATFORM, 20+ MATERIALS
Switch seamlessly between a library of general purpose and specialty resins. Switch between materials in seconds with a cross-compatible cartridge system.
·GROWS WITH YOUR BUSINESS
Start with one 3D printer or many, and add capacity as demand grows. Get helpful, human service when you need it from a Formlabs expert.
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.

Grey Pro Resin
Grey Pro Resin offers high precision, moderate elongation, and low creep. This material is great for concept modeling and functional prototyping, especially for parts that will be handled repeatedly.
Rigid Resin is reinforced with glass to offer very high stiffness and a polished finish. This material is highly resistant to deformation over time and is great for printing thin walls and features.
With low modulus, high elongation, and high impact strength, Durable Resin produces parts with a smooth, glossy finish and high resistance to deformation. Use this material for applications requiring minimal friction.
High Temp Resin
High Temp Resin has a heat deflection temperature (HDT) of 289 °C @ 0.45 MPa—the highest on the 3D printing materials market. Use it to print models for environmental testing, or create molds and masters for production processes like casting and thermoforming.
An 80A Shore durometer material for more rigid flexible parts with a matte-black soft-touch finish. Choose Flexible Resin to create ergonomic features as part of larger assemblies.
Tough Resin balances strength and compliance, making it the ideal choice for prototyping strong, functional parts and assemblies that will undergo brief periods of stress or strain.
Draft Resin is suitable for printing large, bulky parts quickly. With a 300 micron layer height, it has acceptable accuracy for prototyping needs while enabling faster design ite
Our softest Engineering Resin, this 50A Shore durometer material is suitable for prototyping parts normally produced with silicone. Choose Elastic Resin for parts that will bend, stretch, compress, and hold up to repeated cycles without tearing.
Stronger Parts, Less Effort
Form Wash automates the print washing process for consistent, thorough, no-mess cleaning. Parts can be transferred directly from the printer to Form Wash, still on the build platform, or removed and placed in the basket.
Post-curing maximizes material properties for Stereolithography prints, improving parts’ strength and performance. Form Cure precisely combines temperature and 405 nm light to consistently post-cure Form 2 prints.
