3D Printing | Formlabs Form Wash

Form Wash - Overview

Once you've printed your models on your Form 2 or Form 3 printer you are going to need to clean the uncured resin away, before either post-curing your print or removing the support structure and finishing your model as necessary.

The Form Wash provides automated cleaning with parts going straight from your Formlabs Form 2 and Form 3 printer to the Form Wash on the build platform. Keep your print on the build platform while the Form Wash gets to work washing your prints, leaving you able to get on with your other tasks while the Form Wash does a precise cleaning job for you. Once washing is complete the Form Wash helps avoid over-soaked and warped prints by automatically lifting your print out of the IPA. Your part will be air dry and ready waiting for you.

When you parts are clean and dry you may need to post-cure them, if you need a post-curing unit you'll want to know about the Form Cure.
