The Form 3 Workflow in Five Minutes

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.


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.

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.


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.
