Form 3B SLA 3D Printer
SECOND HAND DEAL The Form 3B is an advanced desktop 3D printer optimized for biocompatible materials. Our precise, reliable ecosystem takes the guesswork out of dental fabrication so faster workflows are just a few clicks away. The Next Generation of Dental 3D Printing XY Resolution: 25 microns Advanced Low Force Stereolithography (LFS)™ technology uses a flexible resin tank and a custom-designed, user-replaceable Light Processing Unit (LPU) to produce consistent, accurate prints. Reduced peel forces lead to incredible surface finish and part clarity, right off the printer. Built for Production Build Volume: 14.5 × 14.5 × 18.5 cm 5.7 × 5.7 × 7.3 in Print 2-3 times more parts in a single build compared to small build plate DLP printers to spend less time handling your printer and more time on high-value tasks. Production environments can see 55% less labor time and costs compared to DLP. A modular ecosystem allows for unmatched consistency, scalability, and redundancy.
Form 3 SLA 3D Printer
SECOND HAND DEAL The Form 3 is a part of a 3D printing ecosystem that’s easy to learn and use and requires little intervention or maintenance. Watch the video to learn the basics of how to use the Form 3, from the software and materials to printing and post-processing. 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. Improved part clarity: With LFS technology's improved layer registration and surface finish, translucent materials print clearer than ever, right off the printer. 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 Closed-loop calibration: 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. User-replaceable components: 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. Avoid delays: Bringing production in-house with the Form 3 provides the fast turnaround time and flexibility you need to scale.
5 Ways to Store 3D Printer Filament 3D printer filament materials such as PLA, ABS, TPU and PETG require special storage equipment as they are fairly delicate materials. They're easily destroyed by natural elements such as excess or lack of humidity, dust and atmospheric aerosol particles.
