Formlabs Form 3B+ Features

Low Force SLA

Low Force Stereolithography

It uses a technology called Low Force Stereolithography, which significantly reduces the forces exerted on parts during the print process which can be optimized in Preform.

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 Formlabs Form 3B+, true rapid prototyping is made possible and post-processing is made easier with snap away support structure.

Optimized for Dental, Designed for Dentists

The Form 3B+ has been designed for dentists, with dentists in mind.

The unit is small and lightweight so it can be easily stored and used in a medical practice, the interface has been developed so that it is understandable by dental workers (and not just manufacturers) and much more. Investing in a Form 3B+ means dentists can produce all their prints in-house, reducing client wait times and reducing expenditure on secondary suppliers.

Biocompatible and Medical Resins

Investing in a Form 3B+ opens up more possibilities as you are able to print medical and bio-compatible materials on the Form 3B+. All the medical resins have been FDA approved and are suitable to use in hospitals and other medical practices.
