Form Auto works overtime so you don’t have to.
Before Form Auto, every completed part required manual removal from the build platform before post-processing. Form Auto fully automates part removal by leveraging Formlabs patented Quick Release Technology with Build Platform 2. Collected parts are placed in a UV-safe container for seamless batch transfer to the Form Wash.
Instantly automate your printers without additional training. Form Auto works with any Form 3/3+ 3D printer out in the field or purchased today, so you can level up your production at any time.

24/7 3D Printing, With No Interaction Required.
Never let a printer sit idle with prints waiting in the queue. Form Auto is always ready to start the next print with or without an operator on-site.
Build multi-print queues from anywhere, at any time. Click ‘Print’ from the office, and instantly start production on the manufacturing floor.
Monitor and review finished parts remotely via images and videos in Fleet Control. An onboard camera saves a record of each part by capturing each print as it completes.
