The Formlabs Form 2 is a desktop resin 3D printer from Formlabs, a manufacturer with headquarters in Massachusetts. The Formlabs Form 2 was introduced in September 2015.
Formlabs’ Form 2 is the latest version of the Form 1, the manufacturer’s first 3D printer. The Formlabs Form 2 offers a bigger build volume than its predecessor and features a more powerful laser.
Formlabs Form 2 technology
This resin 3D printer uses Stereolithography (SLA) technology. The Form 2 uses a laser to selectively harden liquid resin and 3D print an object, layer after layer. This technology allows for a very high level of detail and is compatible with a wide variety of resins. These resins can be Standard, Castable, Flexible and Tough according to users’ needs.
The Formlabs Form 2 offers:
- a slide peel: to lower peel forces and reduced wear on the resin tank
- a resin wiper: to improve print consistency by removing any particulates from the build area
- a heated resin tank: to achieve optimal print conditions by maintaining a consistent internal temperature of 35 °C.
All of these updates should solve the biggest issues of the previous Form 1.
