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.
A parabolic mirror ensures that the laser prints perpendicular to the build plane, ensuring uniform print quality across the entire build platform.
Improved part clarity:
With LFS technology's improved layer registration and surface finish, translucent materials print clearer than ever, right off the printer.
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
Optical sensors continuously correct for scale and power, and can even detect dust.
Hassle-free materials management:
Switch between materials in seconds with a simple cartridge system.
The Light Processing Unit, rollers, and optics window can be replaced in-house, reducing the need for replacement printer shipments
Grows With Your Business
Start with one 3D printer or many, and add capacity as demand grows. Use the same tool through prototyping and into production and easily expand into new applications.
Industrial quality for all:
The Form 3 offers industrial capabilities at a fraction of the price of traditional industrial machines.
Get started now:
Formlabs 3D printers are ready to plug and print right out of the box, no specialized training required.
Bringing production in-house with the Form 3 provides the fast turnaround time and flexibility you need to scale.
