The Form 3 and Form 3L LFS 3D printers from Formlabs provide a new approach to SLA that delivers consistently incredible part accuracy and surface quality. See how these new features compare with the existing Form 2.
User replaceable Optical module
Smart, redesigned optical module allows users to easily replace the core laser module. Reduce downtime, stock backup parts, and allow for future optical module upgrades.
Perpendicular laser motion control
The Form 3’s state of the art laser system now stays perfectly perpendicular with the build surface ensuring edge to edge consistency at any build volume. Increased spot and overall surface quality.
Form 2 users can enjoy an easy transition. The Form 3 uses the same Pre-form workflow and interface. Resin Cartridges, Buildplates, Form Wash and Form Cure are fully compatible with the Form 3.
Low Force Peel
Completely redesigned Peel system reduces peel forces. This allows for more reliable printing of difficult parts, large layers and dramatically improves part quality.
Even Better Print QualityThe Form 3 revolves around part quality, with many laser, peel and support improvements, part quality is more consistent and is even more crisp, beautiful and detailed than ever before.
Smaller supports required
Cleanup even easier now with the new low force peel technology. Because of lower forces on the part throughout the print, supports and touch points can be a lot smaller resulting in a much easier post-cleanup process. Less blemishes, less labor, less material used.
Longer tray life
Form 3 Resin tanks now last 20 times longer than standard Form 2 tanks so you can keep churning out parts without worry.
Unparalleled Surface qualitySLA printing produces the highest quality prints. With parts that come off the machine looking like they’re injection molded. Layer lines are minimal, details incredible. From detailed jewelry casting masters to dental crowns, the Form 3 is unmatched in part quality, detail and cleanliness.
With a super high success rate (90%+) You don’t need to worry about failed prints the next day. Run the machine 24/7 on production or prototyping tasks. All can be done on one machine without reconfiguring or calibrating.
Ease of use
Resins are thoroughly tested by Formlabs and all settings are pre-set and optimized so you don’t need to tweak Any settings. Simply choose your resin, resolution and print. Everything else is taken care of behind the scenes.
With drop in modules, and constantly evolving library of resins, the Form 3 is the platform in which the future 3D printing will happen. From niche and industry specific resin like Castable and High temp, to experimental resins like Ceramic and Colors, you can be sure there will be steady stream of new developments on the horizon.
Make use of Formlabs’ already impressive resin library from day 1. Over 15 general and niche application resins. From dental, high temperature to castable resins, all with one system.

This hexagon and hole design is used to create clamping points on your 3D printed part. It is a method of introducing threaded holes to your design by means of a nut and a bolt! It allows you to securely and reliably join two different parts together (ex. two-part enclosure, or a two-piece mold).
