Laser Power

 

Crisp, clean features:
The high-power-density laser is passed through a spatial filter to guarantee a clean laser spot.

Consistent printing:
A parabolic mirror ensures that the laser prints perpendicular to the build plane, ensuring uniform print quality across the entire build platform.

Improved part clarity:
With LFS technology's improved layer registration and surface finish, translucent materials print clearer than ever, right off the printer.

Nonstop Printing

Nonstop Printing

The Form 3 constantly monitors print performance so you can focus on bringing your most creative ideas to life. Integrated sensors help maintain ideal print conditions and send you alerts about the state of your machine.

Closed-loop calibration:
Optical sensors continuously correct for scale and power, and can even detect dust.

Hassle-free materials management:
Switch between materials in seconds with a simple cartridge system.

User-replaceable components:
The Light Processing Unit, rollers, and optics window can be replaced in-house, reducing the need for replacement printer shipments.
 

Grows With Your Business
