Formlabs Form 2 SLA 3D Printer

This printer uses special liquid resin that hardens when hit by a laser.  This stereolithography process is capable of very high resolution prints in a variety of resin types, including:

  • standard resins (grey, white, black, other colors)
  • tough
  • durable
  • flexible
  • transparent
  • castable (can be burned out, as in lost-wax jewelry processes)

Print your own designs (from scanning a 3D object using our 3D scanner, or from your 3D CAD models) or download models from websites like thingiverse.com or pinshape.com.

You may bring your own resin and tray (including third-party resins), or use resin from Maker Works and pay for the amount used.

Accessories include the Form Wash and the Form Cure machines.
