Reliable High-Quality Parts

Minimize Cost with Form Auto





Minimize Cost Per Part With Labor Savings Up to 80%*

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.
