Technology Worth
Getting Excited About

Formlabs' Form 3

Crisp, clean features: The high-power-density laser is passed through a spatial filter to guarantee a clean laser spot.

Consistent printing: A parabolic mirror ensures that the laser prints perpendicular to the build plane, ensuring uniform print quality across the entire build platform.

Improved part clarity: With LFS technology’s improved layer registration and surface finish, translucent materials print clearer than ever, right off the printer.
