Providing pinpoint precision, Form 3 has a custom-designed Light Processing Unit that uses the intricate structure of lenses and mirrors for its to-the-point quality seen in one after the other print. Form 3 by Formlabs has 25 micro-meter XY resolution and Laser power of 250 megawatts. Such a profound resolution and mega laser power enable Form 3 to deliver refreshing and polished features. When the ray crosses the spatial filter, a polished laser spot is assured. The mirror arrangement inside this printer is parabolic. This guarantees that the laser prints pass through the build plane by making a 90-degree angle. This in turn ensures that the print quality is uniform throughout. 

Form 3 works on the augmented layer registered and surface finish (LFS) technology. This technology was invented to provide an augmented polish in parts than the technology that was used previously. This 3D printer by Formlabs constantly monitors its print performance which takes away the effort from your end. This enables you to focus on bringing your most creative ideas into reality. Its integrated sensors help in maintaining ideal print conditions and send you alerts about the state of your machine. 

Form 3 offers extraordinary industrial capabilities at the price of traditional industrial machines. Like the previous Formlabs Form 2 that is ready to plug and print right out of the box, Form 3 too, requires no specialized training. This 3D printer provides faster turnaround time and flexibility that you need to scale to for bringing in house production.
