Form 2

Awarded "Best SLA Printer" 2016 by Make Magazine

Key Benefits
- Higher Success Rate: thanks to the heated resin tank and new peel mechanism.
- Bigger Build Volume: 40% bigger than the Form 1+
- Cartridge Based System enabling you to print bigger prints with less mess.
- Easier To Use: with Wifi connectivity and use Touchscreen controls

The Formlabs Form 2 is the best 3D printer in the world in the stereolithography (SLA) desktop category. It is the successor to the award-winning Form 1+, and it is way more than just an incremental update. In fact, the Form 2 is in a whole new league.

The Form 2 is a staggering 50% faster and four times more powerful than its predecessor thanks to a new 250mW laser. Not only is this laser 130mW more powerful than the 1+’s, it is guided by new custom galvanometers that produce a better, smoother finish to prints.

The Form 2 also has a 40% larger build volume than its predecessor, at 145 x 145 x 175mm / 5.7 x 5.7 x 6.9in. This is a huge increase in build volume and it opens a whole world of new opportunities for the user.

Also 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. This improves print consistently immensely.

Also new is an automated and heated resin tank. The automatic 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 the risk of spillage, and the tank still maintains a constant temperature of 35 °C.

Overall if you are looking for an advanced, premium desktop 3D printer, then they really don’t come much better than the Formlabs Form 2. Buy yours online with GoPrint3D today.

Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some of the common questions we get for Form 2, if you have any more questions, please don't hesitate to email or phone 01765 540 115.
There are a number of key differences:

The Form 2 has a bigger build volume than the Form 1+, 40% bigger build volume in fact, allowing you to print larger models and more parts per build.

The Form 2 also has a more powerful laser than the Form 1+, improving quality by enabling smaller feature sizes.

The Form 2 includes a self heating resin tank, which keeps the resin at an optimum temperature for printing, controlling the viscosity of the resin, regardless of room temperature.

The new automated resin system means that your prints don't require manual top ups. The cartridge system also prevents any spillage and allows you to monitor how much resin you have left from your dashboard.

The Form 2 allows increasing connectivity, as well as connecting via USB, you can also connect via ethernet or WiFi.
There is a possibility that you could use 3rd party resins as Formlabs advertises the Form 2 as an open system, but the settings on the Form 2 are not as customiseable, therefore you would have to find a compatible 3rd party resin. We recommend that you stick with Formlabs resins.
