The Form 3 is an SLA-style 3D printer available at MADE Makerspace. It prints at 25μm xy resolution, and uses a laser beneath its tray of resin to catalyze its print media. SLA printing is preferred for jobs which require extremely high print resolution, or for projects that work best in the variety of resin which Formlabs produces.
Frequently Asked Questions
- Can I bring in my own materials?
Your reservation includes access to MADE’s supply of 3D printing consumables, but does not include any alternative media, which the member can purchase and bring in. Any material used for the Form 3 must be approved for use by the MADE Facilities Director. If you want to use anything other than PLA, you will be required to bring in your own printer head.
- What materials does the Form 3 use?
The Form 3 uses resin manufactured by Formlabs which we keep stocked at MADE. If you are interested in bringing in your own material it must be made by Formlabs, and you will also be bringing in your own build plate and tray.
- What file type does the Form 3 take?
The Form 3 uses .STL files to build the code it need to run.
