Formlabs’ Form 1 desktop 3D printer is designed to achieve professional-quality resolution at a price that individuals can afford.

The Form 1 uses stereolithography technology to form layers as thin as 25 microns (0.001") with details as small as 300 microns (0.012") in a build volume of 125 × 125 × 165 mm (4.9 × 4.9 × 6.5"). It enables users to print professional-quality parts with complex geometries, fine details and attractive surface finish. Form software (compatible with virtually any 3D CAD package), custom-formulated printing materials and a Form Finish post-processing kit complement the printer.
