Scale prototyping and production as your business grows with the Form 3+ Complete Package, an affordable, industrial-quality 3D printer system that consistently delivers.
If you’re serious about 3D printing as a manufacturing tool, we recommend the Form 3+ Complete Package because it has everything you need for automated production. No other 3D printing package offers such great capability. This package includes 1 Form 3+ 3D Printer, 1 Resin Tank, 1 Build Platform, 1 Finish Kit, PreForm Software, 1 Form Wash, 1 Form Cure.
Introducing The Form 3+ Workflow
The Form 3+ is a part of a 3D printing ecosystem that’s easy to learn and use and requires little intervention or maintenance. Watch the video to learn the basics of the Form 3+, from the software and materials to printing and post-processing.
The Form 3+ Complete Package gives you a complete 3D printing package for fully automated, fully-featured production. With it, you can make and process parts and models in-house with no need for third party tools.
The Form 3+ is Formlabs’ most advanced standard-size desktop 3D printer, capable of manufacturing retail-grade models and end-use parts.
It uses a technology called Low Force Stereolithography, which significantly reduces the forces exerted on parts during the print process. This is achieved by a flexible resin tank that bows gradually as the part is lowered into the resin.
This process enables light-touch support structure and improves performance and repeatability. With the Form 3+, true rapid prototyping is made possible and post-processing is made easier with snap away support structure.
The Form Wash is a fully-automated washing station and Form Cure a fully-automated curing station. Together, these machines handle post-processing in a controlled way to bring out the best mechanical properties of parts.
While both of these machines are available for purchase separately, the Form 3+ Complete Package bundles them in to save you money.
A Service Plan must also be purchased. Additive-X's UK-based team of Formlabs experts offer a VIP Service Plan for either 1 or 2 years (2 year option also comes with an extended manufacturer's warranty for year 2) which includes 2 hours of remote training via a video call. As a VIP you benefit from priority phone and email support. If your Form 3 needs to be repaired by the manufacturer, Additive-X will provide you with a replacement printer on a next business day delivery.
The Form 3+ Workflow in Five Minutes
The Form 3+ is a part of a 3D printing ecosystem that’s easy to learn and use and requires little intervention or maintenance. Watch the video to learn the basics of how to use the Form 3+, from the software and materials to printing and post-processing.
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.
The custom-designed Light Processing Unit (LPU) inside the printer uses a compact system of lenses and mirrors to deliver accurate, repeatable prints.
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.
Improved part clarity:
With LFS technology's improved layer registration and surface finish, translucent materials print clearer than ever, right off the printer.
Form Wash and Form Cure:
The Form Wash is a fully-automated washing station; the Form Cure is a fully-automated curing station. Together, these machines handle post-processing in a controlled way to bring out the best mechanical properties of parts.
Grows With Your Business
Start with one 3D printer or many, and add capacity as demand grows. Use the same tool through prototyping and into production and easily expand into new applications.
Industrial quality for all:
The Form 3+ offers industrial capabilities at a fraction of the price of traditional industrial machines.
Get started now:
Formlabs 3D printers are ready to plug and print right out of the box, no specialized training required.
Bringing production in-house with the Form 3 provides the fast turnaround time and flexibility you need to scale.

Can I use Form 2 consumables with the Form 3?
Cartridges, build platforms, finishing kits, Form Wash and Form Cure are compatible between the Form 2 and Form 3.
Tanks are not compatible between the Form 2 and Form 3+.
How is the Form 3+ different to the Form 2?
They use different technologies. The Form 2 is a stereolithography (SLA) printer, the Form 3 is a Low Force Stereolithography (LFS) printer. For a deeper comparison please see our downloads section.
