High-Resolution Models for Movies, Medical, and More

Creating models and props through traditional techniques can involve time-consuming processes like robotic milling, especially for larger pieces. In-house 3D printing enables you to take full control, from start to finish, making it easy to tweak your design process and make iterations. High-fidelity models will help you communicate with clients, bringing your digital creations to life like never before.

Your Digital Models Turned Into High-Definition Physical Reality

Never again wait weeks for a model to arrive from a service provider. Create hyper-realistic 3D models in a matter of hours, right on your desktop. Form 4 delivers incredible detail and seamless performance at an affordable price point.

3D Scan or Design
Step 1

3D Scan or Design

3D scan an existing model, use an MRI or intraoral scan, or design the model in a CAD program.

Step 2

3D Print

Import the CAD model to PreForm to prepare it for 3D printing. Send the file to the 3D printer to create your physical model.
Step 3


After printing, clean and cure your model using Form Wash & Form Cure. Depending on the model, you can paint the part.
Step 4


Present your model to an end-user, or use it internally to drive a project to completion. Easily print as many models as required for any given project.
