This Formlabs Grey Resin Cartridge is compatible with the Form 2 3D printer.
Grey resin is the tool of choice for general purpose prototyping with the Form 2. This resin is specially engineered for fine detail and it has an extremely high tensile strength, similar to that of cured ABS plastic. As a result, it’s a great choice of resin for functional prototypes and it lends itself well to any model with moving parts.
Printed parts take on a stylish, neutral colour with a matte finish. The final colour is ideal for painting over (the grey acting as a primer) and because of this, many people use grey resin to print end product parts, in addition to prototypes. We have also seen this resin used alongside Formlabs’ clear resin; the two complement one another wonderfully, allowing the user to experiment with geometries, finishing and lighting.
Overall, grey resin is an essential tool to have. It’s extremely versatile and it’s the one resin we would have, if given a choice for our Form 2.

Founded in 2011, Massachusetts-based 3D printer manufacturer Formlabs are one of the leaders in the desktop-class stereolithography (SLA) 3D printer market.
Since being founded, Formlabs has invested considerably in research and development to create and manufacture what is without doubt one of the finest SLA desktop 3D printers on the market - the Formlabs Form 2.
Utilising stereolithography as opposed to the better-known fused filament fabrication 3D printing process, you can print high-resolution models that you wouldn’t necessarily be able to with an FFF 3D printer. This reality has put the Formlabs Form series of 3D printers in engineering, design, research, medical, dentistry, art and many other industries that require consistent, high resolution parts and models.
Although the Form 2 is Formlabs’ latest 3D printer, they still manufacture its predecessor the Form 1+ which was announced in 2014. The Form 1+ has a 40 per cent smaller build volume than the Form 2 and it is slower and less precise. For this reason, the Form 2 is the best option for any application, and we recommend this model first and foremost. The gulf in class between the 1+ and 2 offers a tantalising glimpse into the future for Formlabs, though, with future Formlabs 3D printers expected to be even faster and more accurate.
