Form 2 review

Rating : 4.7/5
The Formlabs Form 2 is a desktop 3D printer manufactured by Formlabs, a Massachusetts-based company founded in September 2011. The Formlabs Form 2 was introduced in September 2015.

This 3D printer uses the Stereolithography (SLA) technology. The Form 2 uses a laser to selectively photocure liquid resin and 3D print an object layer after layer. This technology allows a very high level of detail and is compatible with a wide variety of resins suited for different applications: Standard, Castable, Flexible and Though.

The Formlabs Form 2 is an upgraded version of the Form 1, the first 3D printer designed by Formlabs. The Formlab Form 2 has a bigger build volume than its predecessor and is equipped with a more powerful laser.

The Formlabs Form 2 receives a slide peel (lowers peel forces and reduced wear on the resin tank), a resin wiper (improves print consistency by removing any particulates from the build area) and a heated resin tank to achieve optimal print conditions by maintaining a consistent internal temperature of 35 °C. All those updates should solve the biggests issues of the previous Form.
