Formlabs Form 2 overview

The Formlabs Form 2 is a desktop resin 3D printer from Formlabs, a manufacturer with headquarters in Massachusetts.

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 now manufactures the Form 3 and Form 3L.

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 different resins. These resins can be Standard, Castable, Flexible or 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.

Formlabs Form Cell

It is possible to group various Form 2 3D printers together to increase and scale production as businesses grow. The Form Cell production system includes a dashboard, rolling racks for build platforms, and a post-processing station.
