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.

Nonstop Printing

The Form 3 constantly monitors print performance so you can focus on bringing your most creative ideas to life. Integrated sensors help maintain ideal print conditions and send you alerts about the state of your machine.


Closed-loop calibration:

Optical sensors continuously correct for scale and power, and can even detect dust.

Hassle-free materials management:

Switch between materials in seconds with a simple cartridge system.

User-replaceable components:

The Light Processing Unit, rollers, and optics window can be replaced in-house, reducing the need for replacement printer shipments.

The Form 3 Workflow in Five Minutes

The Form 3 is a part of a 3D printing ecosystem that’s easy to learn and use and requires little intervention or maintenance. Watch the video to learn the basics of how to use the Form 3, from the software and materials to printing and post-processing.


Design your model in standard CAD software and import an STL or OBJ file into our PreForm print preparation software.


Send prints over WiFi, reprint previous jobs, and manage your print queue with ease with the printer’s intuitive touchscreen interface.


Easily tear away light-touch supports after printing, then transfer parts to Form Wash and Form Cure for simplified rinsing and post-curing.

The Next Generation of Industrial 3D Printing

With advanced Low Force Stereolithography (LFS)™ technology, Formlabs has completely re-engineered resin-based 3D printing to drastically reduce the forces of the print process.
