Formlabs Form 3B+ Features

Low force display 3D printing

Low Force Stereolithography

It uses a technology called Low Force Stereolithography, which significantly reduces the forces exerted on parts during the print process which can be optimised in Preform.

This is achieved by a flexible resin tank that bows gradually as the part is lowered into the resin.

This process enables light-touch support structure and improves performance and repeatability. With the Form 3+, true rapid prototyping is made possible and post-processing is made easier with snap away support structure.

Variety of Materials to Suit any Need

Formlabs have over 30 different materials that can be used on their Form 3 SLA printers.

Their materials range from being very flexible, to rigid, to materials that be printed quickly and to other materials that are functional in temperatures over 100 degrees.
