Maximize the Throughput of Your 3D Printer Fleet
Skyrocket your ability to produce high-quality, affordable parts with 24/7 back-to-back production. Automatically operate your fleet to eliminate idle printer time with easy-to-implement solutions that require no extra training.
Save Money and Time
Minimize cost per part with labor savings of up to 80%*. The Formlabs Automation Ecosystem lets you significantly reduce the amount of labor needed to create each part. By printing, removing parts, and starting the next print autonomously, production doesn’t have to stop when you leave work. With Form Auto, batch post-process a bin full of parts at once in minutes.

Calculating ROI for the Formlabs Automation Ecosystem
In this whitepaper, we’ll walk through three manufacturing scenarios to explain cost per part and return on investment (ROI) calculations.
Mass Manufacturing Made Possible
Formlabs Manufacturing Service Bureau runs about 140 Form 3 Series printers with a single operator. Read about their time savings and newfound workflow efficiency.
Realize the Benefits of High-Throughput Automated 3D Printing
Scale capacity with demand and produce parts more quickly and affordably than ever with Form Auto, Fleet Control, and the High Volume Resin System by Formlabs.
Automation Hardware for Your Form 3/3+ 3D Printers
Form Auto is an automated hardware extension for Form 3/3+ 3D printers that automatically removes finished parts from the Build Platform 2 and starts the next print without the need for operator interaction, enabling 24/7 printing without downtime.
Form Auto can finish and accept new prints autonomously to work through a multi-print queue. Click ‘Print’ from anywhere, and have many parts waiting for you.
