Formlabs Form Cure Machine

Formlabs Form Cure

The Formlabs Form Cure post-processing machine enhances the post-curing of Formlabs SLA 3D prints by precisely controlling light, internal temperature and time.


Post-curing maximizes material properties for stereolithography prints, improving parts’ strength and performance.

Form Cure uses 405 nanometers light along with a heating system that achieve temperature setting perfect for the properties of the printed parts. It provides smooth and faster prints with a focus on fine details.

A Consistent, Automated Workflow

Post-curing maximizes material properties for SLA prints, improving parts' strength and performance.

Set it and Forget it

Simply set the appropriate time and let Form Cure get to work.

Easy to learn and use

The Form Cure requires little intervention or maintenance.

Post-curing Accuracy

Post curing is not necessary for all resins, but the Formlabs Form Cure improves the performance of Formlabs part materials, especially the resins that require distinct mechanical properties.

Printing cures the resin to its “green” state. In the green state, some polymer connections are not yet fully reacted. Post-curing parts with additional light and heat strengthens the polymer structure, improving strength, stiffness, and temperature resistance.

The increased number of bonds pulls the material together more tightly. Therefore, post-curing also causes minor shrinkage, and each material’s print settings are designed to account for the expected shrinkage during printing and post-curing.

Reliable and Durable Parts

Due to its professional post-curing, parts are fully cured and made ready for their peak performance.

Form Cure combines UV lights and heat to make sure you get the best results following your 3D prints.

An advanced heating system precisely controls the temperature based on the parmeters entered by the user;it also boasts 13 multi-directional LEDs emits UV rays at the finest 405 nm for the perfect printed parts. Prints are also rotated one revolution per minute due to its turntable that provides uniform exposure.

Improve Part Performance

Formlabs form cure has dramatically improved the performance of all printed materials, standard resin increases in strength, engineering resins reach peak performance, and castable resins burn out all more clearly. It is compatible with a variety of materials as well.

For Standard Resins, simply use Form Cure’s default time and temperature. For all other materials, use unique recommended settings for optimum performance.

Automated Post Processing

For almost any 3D printing technology, post processing adds time and limits throughput.

Formlabs post processing solutions simplify and automate post processing so you can consistently produce quality results and maintain a tidy workspace with less time and effort. The Form Wash and Form Cure machines streamline and automate rinsing and post-curing of stereolithography prints.

Formlabs Form Cure SLA Post Processing Steps

Form cure step 1

Step 1: Insert washed and dried prints

Wash parts with the Formlabs Form Wash to remove solvent and support material.

Lift the cover and distribute parts on the round turntable. Space parts evenly to allow light and heat to reach all areas.

Form cure step 2

Step 2: Set the post-cure time and temperature

Set the post-cure time and temperature settings for your resin. The LEDs activate, and the timer starts once the heater reaches the target temperature.

During preheating, the display shows the Preheating status, which includes the current temperature and the target temperature.

Form cure step 3

Step 3: Remove the parts

The LEDs and heater turn off automatically at the end of the post-cure cycle.

Lift the cover and remove the cured parts.
