Expanding access to digital fabrication, so anyone can make anything

Additive-X partnered with Formlabs in the days of the Form 1! Formlabs pushes the boundaries of affordable 3D printing with its next generation SLA technology, known as Low Force Stereolithography (LFS), and its benchtop Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) Fuse Series. We stock the full Formlabs range of printers plus their catalogue of advanced 3D printing materials for next day delivery. The Form Series includes the Form 3+, Form 3B+, Form 3L, and the Form 3BL, plus the post-processing units, Form Wash and Form Cure. The Fuse Series includes the Fuse 1 as well as the post-processing unit called Fuse Sift.

Founded in 2011, Massachusetts-based 3D printer manufacturer Formlabs leads the desktop-class stereolithography (SLA) 3D printer market. They continue to innovate and re-invest in research and development to create and manufacture the best office and workshop additive manufacturing solutions, the best 3D printer software (PreForm and Dashboard), as well as hosting an extensive materials library.

Low Force Stereolithography prints better resolution, higher quality parts than the typical Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) 3D printing process. The Form 3+ and Form 3L both provide great versatility for applications including prototypes, models, props, wearable items, product design and development, master tools, and gauges and inspection tools in a range of materials with elastic & flexible, high temperature, durable and tough properties. You can print industrial-quality parts quickly and repeatedly to a consistently high-quality standard.

The Fuse 1 is a compact industrial SLS 3D printer with a simplified workflow which delivers end-use parts and functional prototypes and is production-ready. Powder-based printing means no supports are required. Printed parts are accurate, high-quality, and have excellent mechanical properties. The Fuse 1 package delivers this at a fraction of the cost of a traditional industrial SLS system.

It’s not just about easy-to-use hardware with Formlabs, their PreForm and Dashboard software is everything you need to control your digital future. Designed to help your team work more efficiently, printers can be accessed from the cloud and with the print management tool you can enjoy a bird’s-eye view of prints, printer status, and teams. You may also receive SMS and email notifications when a print is finished to get the most out of your printer every day.

Formlabs automated post processing solutions have been designed to streamline your end-to-end additive manufacturing process so you can consistently produce high-quality parts with less time and effort. The Form Wash and Form Cure include custom settings that maximise material performance, ensure consistent dimensional accuracy, and meet biocompatibility requirements for each Formlabs material with just the push of a button. Ensuring the perfect finish, every time.

The Formlabs Form and Fuse series of 3D printers are a must have in engineering, design, research, medical, dentistry, art, and many other industries that require consistent, high resolution parts and models.

FAQ’S

Commonly asked questions about Formlabs Form Series and Fuse Series 3D Printers

No, they really aren’t messy! Slot a resin cartridge into the printer and the resin will auto-dispense as required. When your print is finished, remove the build platform and you can put it straight into the Form Wash to rinse off any remaining wet resin. Alternatively, use the tool provided to remove the prints from the build platform and drop them in the washing tub supplied free of charge in the printer package as part of the “Finishing Kit”.
It couldn’t be easier to switch resins. Just remember that you change the resin tank as well as the resin cartridge. You can keep the same build platform if you have cleaned it carefully. When you remove the resin tank and cover with the UV-light-proof lid you can put it aside until you need it again. Remove the cartridge, clicking the cap closed to seal it and again, store it for future use.

Post-curing is not required for Standard resins (Black, White, Clear, Grey), instead you can wash and leave the parts to dry in normal UV light.  Additive-X recommends post-curing in the Form Cure for all other resins to achieve the mechanical and functional properties as specified on the Formlabs material data sheet.

It depends on a number of factors such as how long the tank has been in contact with resin, which resin you are using, and the geometry of your prints.  The good news is your Form 3+/3B+ monitors the % remaining lifetime of the tank for you.

Because the powder contracts after printing, the maximum final build volume is actually 15.92 x 15.92 x 29.55 cm.  The printer build volume is 16.5 x 16.5 x 30 cm.
