Work faster with the Formlabs Form 3L large-format 3D printer. The Form 3L is versatile enough to bring large scale fabrication in-house. Whether you’re packing the build volume for batch production or printing bulky parts, the Form 3L maintains ideal print conditions for nonstop throughput with minimal supervision. Two precision Light Processing Units (LPU) inside the printer achieve consistent accuracy and detail across the entire build platform. This allows for incredible surface finish and the fine detail that stereolithography 3D printing is known for.
Curious to see how you can leverage the Form 3L to fit company needs and get that ROI even faster? Use our tool below to help calculate that.
No specialized technicians required. The Form 3L offers automatic resin dispensing, simple print preparation software, and a thoughtfully designed interface.High-Resolution Touchscreen Interface

Stop sacrificing on quality for large-format prints. The Form 3L provides the smooth surface finish and fine detail that stereolithography 3D printing is known for.Smooth Surface Finish
Choose from a wide range of advanced materials, developed specifically for Formlabs printers by in-house materials scientists. With simplified material switching and automatic resin dispensing, the Form 3L allows you to walk away and focus on other work once your print job starts.Many Applications, One Printer
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.
Two Perpendicular Laser Motion Controllers
The Form 3L’s state of the art dual 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.
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 Quality
The Form 3L 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 3L's Resin tanks now last 20 times longer than standard Form 2 tanks so you can keep churning out parts without worry.
"We have reduced our costs on full-size prototypes from $425 a print to $70 a print [compared to outsourcing]. With that savings, the Form 3L would pay for itself in only three months."
- Matt Tetzl R&D Technician, Black Diamond Equipment
"When we’ve outsourced large scale enclosures, you could still see all of the layer lines. I wasn't able to see them on the Form 3L prints. Being able to quickly iterate on our cosmetic covers to add a level of polish to our R&D efforts is really helpful."
- Louise Katzovitz Mechanical Engineer, Optimus Ride
"We’ve been working with the Form 3 before, so we had high expectations about the Form 3L. Setting the printer up and starting a print is the same process that’s just as easy. All the parts we printed came out accurate and flawless. It is obvious that the Form 3L is a high-quality device and it sets the benchmark in terms of speed, size, and quality."
- Marek Markon Mechanical Engineer, Continental Automotive Austria GmbH
This printer is capable of using all of Formlabs resin from its entire material library, 3rd party materials can not be used on this machine. If you are looking for specific materials message us and we can help find you one!
The print volume is 5x bigger allowing for greater printing capabilities.
Formlabs recently implemented a new feature allowing print failure cleanup to be as easy and efficient as possible. The Form 3L has an option to print a “Cleaning Mesh” on the resin tank that binds to cured resin into a single piece that can be discarded from the tank, allowing you to get back to printing quickly.
Unparalleled Surface Quality
SLA 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 a constantly evolving library of resins, the Form 3L is the platform in which the future 3D printing will happen. From niche and industry-specific resin like Castable wax and High temp to experimental resins like Ceramic and Colors, you can be sure there will be a 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.
