Announcing Form Wash and Form Cure

Post by on May 9, 2017

Built to complete the Formlabs SLA engine, we’re thrilled to announce Form Wash and Form Cure, two new units that streamline post-processing to help you consistently produce high-quality parts, with less time and effort.

Parts travel directly from the printer to Form Wash, still on the build platform, and are automatically agitated in isopropyl alcohol (IPA) to get perfectly, non-sticky prints. Best of all, when they’re done, Form Wash raises parts out of the IPA–no more babysitting, no more accidentally over-soaked prints.

Form Cure provides a professional post-curing solution that’s finely tuned to bring Formlabs materials to their maximum mechanical properties. Through the precise combination of heat and light, Form Cure makes Standard Resins stronger and brings functional materials to peak performance.

Make the most of your Form 2: add Form Wash and Form Cure to your 3D printing lineup.  Learn more and get on the waiting list today!

Get on our Pre-order:  Form Wash / Form Cure  (ETA for product release is Sept 2017)

The new BB Cure Tech Version is here for Formlabs Engineering Resins

Post by on May 5, 2017

As you are aware, all of Formlabs’ non-standard resins require a post curing solution in order to achieve it’s full rated properties and in the case of Dental SG resin, it’s bio-compatibility requirements.  We’ve been fortunate enough to work with our friends at Meccatronicore in distributing the BB Cure Dental version to Canada and the United States.  With the new release of the much sought after Durable Resin from Formlabs, the demand for engineering resins to reach it’s fully cured potential is stronger than ever.

We’re happy to announce that Shop3D.ca will be carrying the new BB Cure Tech which was made specifically for post curing the Engineering resins with it’s focus on the Durable resin which requires a different wavelength for post curing.  With this new version, you can have the peace of mind that your Tough, Dental, Flexible and High Temp resins will be fully post cured and at it’s strongest.

Now in stock at Shop3D.ca shipping from Ontario.  Check out the new BB Cure Tech!

Intro to 3D Printing for Props & Replicas feat. Heroes Workshop

Shop3D.ca is proud to host a meet up on Wednesday May 17th, 2017!

The topic for the meet up will be “Intro to 3D Printing for Props & Replicas”. Join us as we showcase various props & replicas printed on our Ultimakers & Form2s, talk about the nuances of the two styles of printers and their different uses in the arts, and the different stages of production that the 3D printed artifacts can be taken through. While more advances topics may be touched upon (molding, casting, finishing & painting), majority of the meet up may be focused on the advantages (and maybe some disadvantages) that 3D printing can lead to in the props & replicas world.
