Formlabs Fuse 1 review

The Formlabs Fuse 1 is a professional SLS 3D printer manufactured by Formlabs, a Massachusetts-based company founded in September 2011. The Formlabs Fuse 1 has been introduced to the public in June 2017. Beta units are planned to start shipping late 2017; non-beta units are expected to begin shipping in Spring 2018.

This 3D printer uses the Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) 3D printing technology. The SLS 3D printing process uses a laser to precisely fuse Nylon powder layer after layer, until the part is finally done.

Formlabs also manufactures the Form 3.

Characteristics and features of the Formlabs Fuse 1 SLS 3D Printer

The SLS 3D printing process builds parts from a powder bed, which means that they can be produced support-free. SLS allows geometric complexity of designs and a better finish direct from the 3D printer. The material used in the machine can also be re-used (up to 50% recycled powder) on a next 3D printing process to save money.

3D printing materials for the Formlabs Fuse 1

The available 3D printing materials include high strength and chemical-resistant plastics such as PA 12 and PA 11, used in the industry for functional prototyping and end-user parts. PA means Polyamide and is also known as Nylon.

Nylon has some very interesting properties for prototyping, but also for the production of series.

  • Bends and returns to its original form, rather than fracturing suddenly; like ABS or PLA does.
  • Great for structural, load bearing, or mechanical parts.
  • Suitable for high temperature applications and parts that need to tolerate heat.

Formlabs Fuse 1: FAQ

  • What is the Formlabs Fuse 1 material cost?

The Fuse 1 uses Nylon PA 12 as material in powder form. Nylon PA 12 is the industry standard to make strong end-use parts and durable prototypes. As of October 2018, Formlabs still hasn’t released pricing information for the Nylon PA 12 powder used as a consumable by the Fuse 1.

  • What is the Formlabs Fuse 1 accuracy?

The Fuse 1, using the SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) 3D printing process, can produce high-quality objects and parts, with a minimum layer thickness of 100 µm. The Fuse 1 is designed to 3D print objects with the same mechanical properties that can be expected from a professional 3D printing service bureau.

Price of the Formlabs Fuse 1

The price of the Formlabs Fuse 1 starts at USD$9,999 for the 3D printer and build chamber only. A full package of the 3D printer, with post-processing powder removal station, extra piston power and materials, is available for a further $10,000 at $19,999.
