We are excited to announce the arrival of the Formlabs Form 2 and it’s available to pre-order today for £2449.
The Formlabs Form 2 is the successor to the Formlabs Form 1+, building on its predecessor with the technology and features you’d expect from a 2015 flagship. The Form 2 has a laser four times more powerful than its predecessor, allowing it to print up to 50% faster, and a redesigned galvanometer control system that produces a smoother and better finish to prints.
Bigger, faster, simpler and just plain better – the Form 2 is a sensational update to the Form 1+.
In the words of Formlabs themselves, this is “the most advanced desktop 3D printer ever created” in the stereolithography (SLA) category, with a new sliding peel mechanism that gently removes parts from the print bed, and a new more efficient wiper system that glides across the optical window. The laser is 130mW more powerful than its predecessor, The Form 1+, and this is guided by new custom galvanometers to create each layer with incredible detail.
The killer feature of the Form 2, despite its speed and its level of detail however, is the new automated resin system. This automatically refills the resin tank with new resin when levels get too low. And the tank itself is heated, maintaining a constant temperature of 35 °C for repeatable, dependable and consistent prints.
The Form 2 isn’t just ground-breaking; it’s beautiful, too.
First impressions count, and the Form 2 makes a great one. What will strike you first about the Form 2 is its beauty. The gunmetal grey base and the transparent orange cube hood look out of this world, providing a style beyond that of most 3D printers on the market – even those costing ten times more. And when its black LCD screen lights up, well, you’re going to be blown away by the beauty of the Form 2, you really are. It stands out, and it looks just like a 3D printer should.
The Form 2 3D printer is ideally suited to primary, secondary and higher education environments, as well as business and manufacturing environments thanks to its rapid prototyping capabilities. But it also has a place for home use, thanks to its compact design and Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity options. We recommend it to anybody or any institution with a need to print intricate and extremely detailed parts and models.
