At CES 2022, Formlabs, launched the Form 3+ and Form 3B+ printers, available and shipping globally today. These printers feature improved Low Force Stereolithography technology that was first introduced in 2019 with the Form 3 and Form 3B. These new iterations also feature enhanced hardware components and software updates that improve print speed, print quality and support removal.
The Form 3+ and Form 3B+ leverage powerful, higher-intensity lasers and new material settings to optimize laser exposure and print up to 40% faster than earlier models.
The new printers include the next generation Build Platform 2, which uses patented Quick Release Technology and a flexible print surface to instantly release parts from the build platform. Users can quickly and easily remove parts from the print surface without tools in seconds.
Formlabs also announced ESD Resin, the company’s first static-dissipative material, developed for applications that require ESD-safe parts to protect objects and electronics sensitive to unregulated static discharge.
