Introducing the Form 3+, Form 3B+, and Build Platform 2

January 04, 2022


Increase print speed by 20-40% and streamline post-processing!

Today, Formlabs announced two new SLA 3D Printers, the Form 3+ and Form 3B+. We actually started shipping these printers prior to our public announcement and are excited to let you know you have one! To confirm this, look for a plus symbol in the bottom left corner of the sticker on the back of your printer.

 

Formlabs 3+ 3B+ Label

 

To correctly identify the printer tock you have here are some snippets to help you: Current stage of new printers shipping under old label as below (if ordered F3-PRINTER until launch): You can see the label sticker on top of the original label if you zoom.

To take advantage of the improved print speeds, surface finish, and reliability that the Form 3+ and Form 3B+ offer, simply download the latest version of PreForm and update your printer firmware. Your printer will then identify and function as a Form 3+ or Form 3B+ accordingly.

Wondering what’s new with today’s launch? New print settings improve print speeds by 20-40%, while enhanced light-touch supports make finishing your part easier than ever. Form 3+ and Form 3B+ also have new hardware components that further improve print speeds and provide even better part quality and printer reliability.

Formlabs Build Platform 2

To make post-processing easier than ever before, pair the Form 3+ or Form 3B+ with Build Platform 2, our next generation build platform with patented Quick Release Technology. Build Platform 2 enables a faster workflow by quickly and easily releasing parts from the build platform in seconds without tools and without the risk of damaging your part.

Build Platform 2 is compatible with the Form 3+, Form 3B+, Form 3, Form 3B, and Form 2.

Together, Form 3+, Form 3B+, and Build Platform 2 are changing the way 3D printed parts are fabricated, allowing you to print, post-process, and finish your parts in record time.
