Form 3L

Get your 3D prints, flawlessly and bigger than ever! Take control of large-scale part production, increase your throughput, and bring your biggest ideas to life with the Form 3L, a cost-effective large-format 3D printer that doesn’t compromise on the details. 

    What features do you get? 

    • LFS (Low Force Stereolithography) technology uses linear illumination and a flexible tank to turn liquid resin into flawless prints. This advanced form of stereolithography drastically reduces peel forces to provide groundbreaking print quality and printer reliability. 
    • Improved post-processing: new innovations eliminate the risk of damaging your parts with tools while allowing you to reduce labor and increase throughput. Build Platform 2 and our patented Quick Release Technology releases parts from the print surface instantly. Enhanced light touch support structures detach from the part in seconds. 
    • Two precision Light Processing Units inside the printer achieve consistent accuracy and detail across the entire build platform. 
    • Models printed on the Form 3L have the polished appearance of injection-moulded for realistic prototyping and consumer-ready end-use parts. 
    • Achieve the highest level of 3D printed translucency. With precise layer registration and smooth surface finish, translucent materials print clearer than ever, right off your print bed. 
    • The Light Processing Units, rollers, optics window, and other components can be replaced in-house to ensure 24/7 uptime. 
    • Your Form 3L comes with a 5.5” full color, high resolution, interactive display that keeps track of your prints and printer maintenance so you can keep printing, stress-free. 
    • Remotely monitor and manage your fleet of printers with cloud monitoring.
