Formlabs Resins & Consumables Overview

If you are already printing with a Form 2, Form 3, Form 3+ or Form 3L printer from Formlabs you'll be familiar with the Resin Tank, Build Platform and Resin Cartridges. These are three items that will need replacing when they either wear, in the case of the Resin Tank and Build Platforms, or run, in the case of Resin, out.

Formlabs Resin Cartridges

Formlabs have formulated their resins in-house, developing a materials range that delivers top-quality output with great detail alongside durability and toughness. The cross-compatible cartridge system means the Resin Cartridges work with the Form 2, Form 3, Form 3+, Form 3B and the Form 3L.

Formlabs Resins are divided into families, each with a particular speciality area. These are:

Find out more about the material families and the individual resins available in the main menu and choose from a great selection of resins for your Formlabs printer.

Formlabs Resin Tanks

The Form 2, Form 3 and Form 3L use different resin tanks. We recommend a different resin tank for each different resin you want to print with. Switching materials is easy with a separate tank for each individual resin colour - just slide in a new tank and its corresponding cartridge and you’re printing with a different material.

Formlabs Build Platforms

Make your workflow faster with a spare Form 2, Form 3 or 3L, build platform. With another build platform you can start a new print straightaway, while you clean and remove your current model from its build platform ready for the following print.
