Formlabs, segment-leading manufacturer of desktop SLA 3D printers, has lifted two new additions to its line, the Form 3 and Form 3L use what Formlabs is calling Low Force Stereolithography (LFS). Form 3L, is the first affordable large format resin 3D printer, allows you to bring large format 3D printing in-house.
The Form 3L is the first affordable large build volume SLA 3D printer. Scale up your in-house print production with the Form 3L, an easy-to-use large format 3D printer for reliable production of industrial-quality parts.
Form 3L 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.
·Small Details, Big ResultsEliminate the turnaround time of outsourcing or the manual work of assembly for large scale 3D prints. The Form 3L offers a massive build volume at an unprecedented value.
·Optimized Laser Path
Two staggered Light Processing Units (LPUs) inside the printer use a compact system of lenses and mirrors to deliver accurate, repeatable prints.
·Non stop printing
Integrated sensors help maintain ideal print conditions and send you alerts about the state of your machine. Work seamlessly within the Formlabs ecosystem of general purpose and specialty materials. The Form 3L can hold two easy-to-switch resin cartridges, preventing interruptions during large print jobs.
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.
