Formlabs, the designer and manufacturer of powerful and accessible 3D printing systems, has recently announced the addition of two new advanced professional Low Force Stereolithography (LFS) 3D printers to its hardware lineup: Form 3 and Form 3L.
LFS 3D printing is an advanced form of stereolithography (SLA) that delivers consistently flawless parts. The LFS process uses a flexible tank to drastically reduce the forces of the peel process, providing incredible surface finish and detail, and linear illumination to deliver accurate, repeatable parts.
The powerful LFS print process behind the Form 3 is built to scale: Form 3L simultaneously uses two Light Processing Units (LPUs) to bring large-format 3D printing in-house. Form 3L offers five times the build volume and two times the laser power of Form 3 to print large parts fast.
In addition to the new hardware, Formlabs also announced recently a new material: Draft Resin. Draft Resin prints at 300 microns layer lines and is 3‑4× faster than other standard resins, making it ideal for rapid prototyping.
