Ceramic Wash Solution
The Ceramic Wash Solution is a specialized wash liquid for cleaning your ceramic 3D printed parts. A wash in this solution is required for parts printed in Alumina 4N Resin.Ceramic Wash Solution is non-hazardous and non-flammable.
Alumina 4N Resin is a high-density and high-purity technical ceramic 3D printing material with exceptional performance in extreme environments: thermally resistant, hard, abrasion resistant, mechanically strong, and chemically inert.
A stainless steel build platform is required when printing with Alumina 4N Resin (use either Form 3 Build Platform 2 or Form 3 Stainless Steel Build Platform).

With this material, your customers can fabricate soft, pliable, and durable parts with a 250% elongation at break and a 12 kN/m tear strength that can withstand repeated cycles of stretching, flexing, and compression. They can combine the high performance of silicone and the design freedom of 3D printing to create highly functional silicone parts with excellent chemical and thermal resistance (-25°C to 125°C), fine features as small as 0.3 mm, and complex geometries that are not possible with traditional methods. With Formlabs, cost-effective rapid prototyping and short-run production of silicone parts are now within your reach.
Silicone 40A Resin
Introducing Silicone 40A Resin, the first accessible 100% silicone 3D printing material. Eliminating molding and labor-intensive casting processes: Formlabs’ new patent-pending photo-curing silicone technology uses the streamlined Form 3+ ecosystem to 3D print 100% silicone parts in-house in a matter of hours.

Automation Hardware for Your 3D Printer
Form Auto is a hardware extension for Form 3/3+ 3D printers that automatically removes finished parts from Build Platform 2 and starts the next print without the need for operator interaction, enabling 24/7 3D printing with no printer downtime.
Always available, always ready, and always printing.
Form 3+ and Form 3B+
The Form 3+ & Form 3B+ combines both hardware and software improvements to deliver what’s most important to 3D printing users: fabricate parts and components in record time and drive forward critical R&D projects faster than ever.
In addition to 20-40% faster print speeds, they feature a redesigned heating system and new components that stabilize the laser system, resulting in improved surface finish and more consistent prints.
Build Platform 2L and Build Platform 2
Build Platform 2 and 2L have a flexible print surface that instantly releases parts without the need for removal tools. They release all parts on the print surface simultaneously, saving you valuable post-processing time.
The Build Platform 2 and 2L are ideal for:
Parts printed directly on the build platform
Strong, stiff, large parts
Batch production parts
Low Force Stereolithography (LFS)™ uses a flexible tank and linear illumination to deliver groundbreaking print quality and printer reliability.
Form 3L & Form 3BL
Twice the Laser Power
Two staggered Light Processing Units (LPUs) inside the printer use a compact system of lenses and mirrors to deliver accurate, repeatable prints.
The Form 3L can hold two easy-to-switch resin cartridges, preventing interruptions during large print jobs.
Form 3+ & Form 3B+
The custom-designed Light Processing Unit (LPU) inside the printer uses a compact system of lenses and mirrors to deliver accurate, repeatable prints.
25 - 300 μm
The Form 3 and Form 3L 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.
Crisp, clean features:
The high-power-density laser is passed through a spatial filter to guarantee a clean laser spot.
A parabolic mirror ensures that the laser prints perpendicular to the build plane, ensuring uniform print quality across the entire build platform.
Faster than ever:
A high frequency galvanometer offers precise control and high speed.
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.
Formlabs Resin Library
Advanced materials designed to deliver beautiful results...
Outstanding performance. Excellent detail.
Custom-formulated to deliver the highest-quality output, our Standard Resins capture astonishing detail without sacrificing strength.
Choose Standard Resins For:
Smooth Surface Finish
Greyscale Resins for Prototypes and Models
With a matte surface finish, opaque appearance, and precise details, Black, White, and Grey Resins are ready to use right off the printer. Their neutral undertone also makes a great base for parts that will eventually be painted or undergo other finishing processes.
Clear Resin for Transparent Applications
Stereolithography 3D printing technology makes clear prints possible on the desktop. Clear Resin is great for fluidics and moldmaking, optics, lighting, and any parts requiring translucency.
Draft Resin V2 for Truly Rapid Prototyping
Draft Resin prints up to four times faster than Formlabs standard materials, making it ideal for initial prototypes and rapid iterations to help bring products to market faster.
Parts printed with Draft Resin exhibit a smooth grey finish and high accuracy. Use 200 micron settings for fast print speeds, or use 100 micron settings for models with finer details.
Color Kit: A Full Spectrum of Possibilities
The first integrated color mixing solution for resin, not filament, Color Kit enables 3D printing in a range of colors without the manual work of finishing and painting.
Field test product concepts more quickly with 3D prints that fit their environment.
Bring SLA parts to the next level with Formlabs Finishing Tools: a curated set of post-processing solutions for SLA 3D printing that streamlines every step in the workflow from part and support removal to sanding, buffing, and polishing.
Curated by experienced engineers and validated by customers, these 3D printing finishing tools were designed to enhance surface finish, smooth planes, and edges, and elevate overall appearance while driving down labor time and cost per part.
