High-resolution 3D Printing

Laser-sharp prints with stunning surface finish.

Engineered for precision. Designed for reliability.

A new peel mechanism and heated resin tank create a reliable print process for large, solid parts and small intricate details.

  • Slide Peel
    Print big, solid parts with lower peel forces and reduced wear on the resin tank.
  • Resin Wiper
    Improve print consistency by removing any particulates from the build area, properly agitating the resin.
  • Heated tank
    Achieve optimal print conditions by maintaining a consistent internal temperature of 35 °C.

Automated Resin System.

The Form 2 prints bigger, better. Our new integrated resin system allows for larger prints, less mess, and longer tank life.

Level Sensing

Ensures your tank is automatically filled during printing, no more pausing for manual top ups.

Cartridge ID Chip

Allows you to keep track of resin supplies from your dashboard.

Open Mode

Lets you continue to experiment with 3rd party resins.

Control at your fingertips.

Easily send prints over wifi, reprint previous jobs, and manage your print queue with our new touchscreen interface and wireless connectivity.

Always connected.

Stay informed wherever you are. Your Printer Dashboard allows you to access your Form 2 from anywhere.
