Formlabs Form 3+ achieves incredible print quality thanks to its trademark technology—Low Force Stereolithography (LFS). By combining a flexible tank with linear illumination, the forces exerted on parts during the printing process are drastically reduced leading to sharp details that are finer than ever, parts snapping cleanly off supports, and reliable print results that are easily repeatable.

  • High-quality, repeatable prints with custom Light Processing Unit (LPU)
  • Smooth surfaces with LPU's linear illumination
  • Clean support removal with reduced peel force
