Engineering Inside Formlabs

Making the Form 2

Building 3D printers is complicated. Many different systems (optical, mechanical, electrical, and chemical) need to work in harmony to create high-precision 3D prints on your desktop. The more systems that have to work together, the more opportunities there are for things to go wrong.

This is the first in a series where we’re documenting the process we went through to ship our latest creation, the Form 2. This is one of the most critical moments developing any complex piece of hardware — connecting and testing all the subsystems.
