3D Printing

resin types

White, Clear and Tough resin

The Formlabs Form 2 is a 3D desktop printer that uses SLA (stereolithography) technology to reconstruct geometric 3D files into a solid model. Powered by a 250 mW UV laser, models can be printed with an accuracy down to 25-50 microns, depending on the resin. Most prints take approximately 6-8 hours, given that there are 500+ layers for a majority of models.
