Let’s take a fresh look at the Form2 3D printer from our friends over at Formlabs.

Stereolithography, more commonly known as SLA, is a 3D printing technology that originated in the early 1980’s.

With SLA, a liquid photopolymer is converted into solid material layer by layer when exposed to a highly concentrated light source, such as a laser or projector, in a process known as photopolymerization.

The result is a three-dimensional solid part that is water-tight with a smooth surface finish and fine details. Due to the high resolution, layer lines are less noticeable than parts fabricated with extrusion-based printers.

While SLA fits well into a variety of applications, large-scale industrial systems are expensive to own and operate making them barriers to wide-use adoption.

In 2011, Formlabs introduced industrial quality SLA to the desktop. With high-resolution, capabilities and materials previously limited to larger systems, Formlabs made SLA more affordable and accessible.

Starting at $3,499 the Form2 is the third-generation 3D printer from Formlabs. It has a considerable build volume for its size with a layer resolution as low as 25 microns.
