3D Printing is Getting Bigger & Better

(Image courtesy of Formlabs.) In just a few decades, 3D printing has advanced in application from proof-of-concept, to prototyping, to production in the form of additive manufacturing (AM). In this transition from theory to practice, the technology has advanced as well, continually setting new limits in production speed, part quality and build volume. Such innovation is often borne out in entirely new production processes, such as stereolithography (SLA) , and these are in turn refined and optimized to open up new applications. Enter Formlabs and Low Force Stereolithography (LFS), the core of its third-generation 3D printers: the Form 3 and the Form 3L . The Form 3 (left) and Form 3L (right). (Image courtesy of Formlabs.) Inverted & Low Force Stereolithography One of Formlabs’ biggest innovations in SLA was to turn the 3D printing process on its head, reducing the amount of resin needed to fill the vat where […]
