Formlabs Form 3L Features

Formlabs 3L SLA

Low Force Display Printing

The Form 3L uses a technology called Low Force Stereolithography, which significantly reduces the forces exerted on parts during the print process which can be optimized 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 3L, 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 offers a wide variety of materials that can be used on their range of SLA printers.

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

Fast-printing material

Draft Resin balances detail and speed to save time on bulky prototypes and enable quick iteration.

Formlabs touchscreen

High-resolution touchscreen interface

A 5.5” interactive full-color display minimizes error and eliminates the need for constant monitoring.

Automated print setup

Tested over millions of prints, our free print preparation software, PreForm, automatically suggests optimal orientation, supports, and layout, with the ability to manually refine as needed.

Benefits of the Formlabs Form 3L

Javelin are offering the Formlabs Form 3L Basic Package, which gives you the basics required to start printing with the Form 3L 3D Printer.

 

  • Form 3L: The Form 3L is the largest SLA printer in Formlabs range, and it will allow you to create large end-use parts with ease.
  • 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 with a flexible resin tank that bows gradually as the part is lowered into the resin.
  • Materials: 20 different Formlabs materials at launch, for a wide range of applications.
  • Compatible with Form 2: Cartridges and Build Platforms are the same.
  • Ease of Maintenance: Optical components of the printer can be replaced in-field.
  • Tear Away Supports: Light touch supports for even smoother prints.
  • Adaptive Layer Height: For the combination of speed and detail.
  • Audible Alerts: Be notified of errors and changes in print status by sound.
  • Remote Printing: Start prints off from home, or on the go.
