What is as reliable as the Form 3, but has a build volume that is 5 times bigger and thus can print up to 500% bigger parts in the same quality? The Form 3L. With a build volume of 20 x 33.5 x 30 cm, the Form 3L is a huge LFS 3D printer, which allows you to produce scalable big 3D prints at high quality.
A double Light Processing Unit
To save time and guarantee the quality of the prints, Formlabs has integrated not one but two Light Processing Units in the Form 3L. This means that the Form 3L has 2 high resolution lasers that can work simultaneously. This leads to a faster printing process with the same end quality.
Low Force Stereolithography (LFS)
Just as the Form 3, the Form 3L uses Low Force Stereolithography. But what is it? LFS is an advanced form of SLA (Stereolithographic Apparatus). LFS uses linear lighting and a flexible resin tank to reach the highest quality possible. The Form 3 however still works with a high qualitative Light Processing Unit and an 85-micron laser. This allows you to print parts with layer thickness between 25 and 300 microns.
Low Force Stereolithography lets you reach an excellent consistency and high repeatability of your printing process. The qualitative print details are combined with easy to remove supports. The integrated adaptive layer thickness looks and finds the perfect balance between high details and high speed for the best results possible.
A double cartridge system
Thanks to its size the Form 3L needs a separate build platform and resin tank. Just as the renewed tank for the Form 3, the tank for the Form 3L is flexible for optimized results. You can use the same resin cartridges for the Form 3L as you are used to use with the Form 3 and Form 2. You only need two, thanks to the double cartridge system.
For the business users Formlabs has also added the Remote Printing System. Following your prints in PreForm and Dashboard was already possible, but this renewal allows you to work in teams, look into each other’s progress and prioritize urgent parts that need to be printed.
Included with the Form 3L are the resin tank, build platform and finishing kit.
