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.

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.

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.
