Formlabs - Form 2
The Form 2 from Formlabs is the most advanced professional desktop 3D printer on the market; engineered for reliability and production of prints from tiny, intricately detailed models to large sturdy prototypes. If you are looking for the output of an industrial printer but want an affordable solution, that fits on your desktop, the Form 2 is the answer.
The Form 2 is the successor to the award winning Form 1+ but delivers more than an incremental update from its predecessor:
- The Form 2 is 50% faster and four times more powerful than the Form 1+, this comes courtesy of a new 250mW laser. This makes the Form 2 130mW more powerful than the 1+ and thanks to new custom galvanometers the Form 2 produces better prints, with a smoother finish
- The build volume on the Form 2 is 40% larger than its predecessor, at 145 x 145 x 175mm. This increase in size also increases the opportunites for the user
- New to the Form 2 is a sliding peel mechanism. This mechanism gently removes parts from the print bed, so that a revised wiper system can reset the resin. Resulting in a consistently improved print
- Also new to the Form 2 is an automated and heated resin tank. The automated resin tank works in conjunction with Form 2 resin cartridges that have a chip that communicates with the printer to automatically refill the tank with new resin when levels get too low. This eliminates spillage risk and maintains a constant temperature of 35°C
The Form 2 comes with its own preprint software, Preform, it’s user friendly and easy to learn.
The Formlabs material range will ensure you can find the right resin for your print, whether you’re after a Standard print or something more specialized for Engineering, Jewellery or Dental.
