    Big Parts, Big Throughput

    With a large build volume of 33.5 × 20 × 30 cm (13.2 × 7.9 × 11.8 in),
    you can print one large model or many small parts in a single job.

    Stop outsourcing large-scale prints

    Work faster with a large format 3D printer that’s versatile enough to bring large scale fabrication in-house.

    Life-sized prints for larger-than-life ideas

    The Form 3L is large enough to print human-scale models, like a prototype of a helmet that’s ready to try on.

    Perfectionism that scales

    Two precision Light Processing Units inside the printer achieve consistent accuracy and detail across the entire build platform.

    Intuitive and efficient

    No specialized technicians required. The Form 3L offers automatic resin dispensing, simple print preparation software, and a thoughtfully designed interface.

    High-resolution touchscreen interface:
    A 5.5” interactive full-colour display minimizes error and eliminates the need for constant monitoring.

    Automated print setup:
    Tested over millions of prints, our free print preparation software, PreForm, automatically suggests optimal orientation, supports, and layout, with the ability to manually refine as needed.

    Continuously evolving:
    We believe the best products grow better over time, and we’re committed to continually evolving our hardware through software improvements.

    Print around the clock

    Whether you’re packing the build volume for batch production or printing bulky parts, the Form 3L maintains ideal print conditions for nonstop throughput, with minimal supervision.

    Cloud monitoring:
    Remotely monitor and manage your fleet of printers with the online Dashboard.

    Fast-printing material:
    Draft Resin balances detail and speed to save time on bulky prototypes and enable quick iteration.

    In-field repairs:
    The Light Processing Units, rollers, optics window, and other components can be replaced in-house to ensure 24/7 uptime.

    Incredible part quality

    Stop sacrificing on quality for large-format prints. The Formlabs Form 3L provides the smooth surface finish and fine detail that stereolithography 3D printing is known for.

    XY Resolution: 25μm
    Laser Power: 250mW

    Smooth surface finish:
    Models printed on the Form 3L resemble polished injection-molded for realistic looks-like prototyping and consumer-ready end-use part production.

    Consistent precision:
    A system of lasers and mirrors ensures uniform print quality, for an XY resolution of 25 microns across the entire build platform.

    High translucency:
    With precise layer registration and smooth surface finish, translucent materials print clearer than ever, right off the printer.

    Hassle-Free Materials Management

    Choose from a wide range of advanced materials, developed specifically for Formlabs printers by in-house materials scientists. With simplified material switching and automatic resin dispensing, the Formlabs Form 3L allows you to walk away and focus on other work once your print job starts.

    Many applications, one printer.

    Print in over 15 functional resins to support a wide range of workflows on a single platform.

    Switch materials in minutes.

    Avoid the hassle and mess of purging materials with our swappable cartridge system, cross-compatible with other Formlabs SLA printers.

    Automatic resin dispensing.

    Our automated resin system dispenses resin as parts print. The Form 3L holds two cartridges of resin to avoid mid-print interruptions.


    Low Force Stereolithography (LFS)™ uses a flexible tank and linear illumination to deliver groundbreaking print quality and printer reliability.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    +Is there an extended warranty or support contract available?
    The Form 3L comes standard with a 12 month warranty but this can be extended to 24 months. We also have tailored service plans available. Please contact us to speak with one of our team about options for service/support contracts.
    +Does the printer come with everything I need to start printing?
    The Form 3L starter package comes with everything you need to print however you will need Isopropyl alcohol or TPM for washing the uncured resin from your prints. These can be purchased from local chemical suppliers in Australia, and you will want approximately 40L.
    +How much do the materials and resin tanks cost?
    You can now find the prices for the Form 3L consumables and accessories on our webstore.
    +Will there be a large cure unit for Form 3L prints?
    Formlabs are working on a large cure unit which should be available soon after the first printers arrive in Australia. If you need to cure parts before this becomes available the standard Form Cure can still be used if your parts will fit, alternatively, parts can be left in the sun to cure.
    +Will there be a large wash unit for Form 3L prints?
    Formlabs are working on a large wash unit. However, the Form 3L Starter package includes a Rinse Bucket for washing parts. This is large enough to wash full volume Form 3L prints and a mounting feature holds the build platform securely in place means you can wash parts before or after removing from the build platform.
    +What is the build volume for the Form 3L?
    The Form 3L Build Volume is 33.5 × 20 × 30 cm (W x D x H)
    +How big is the Form 3L and how much does it weigh?
    The Form 3L printer dimensions are approximately 77.5 × 52 × 73.5 cm and the printer weighs around 54 kg.
    +What is the difference between the Form 3 and Form 3L?
    The main difference between the Form 3 and Form 3L is size. The Form 3L boasts a build volume which is 5 times larger than the Form 3. The Form 3L uses the same LFS (low force stereolithography) as the Form 3 but has two staggered Light Processing Units (LPUs) for faster printing. The easy change automated material feed system has been increased to 2 cartridge slots for larger material capacity. Because the print process remains unchanged the Form 3L still produces prints with the same exceptional print quality as the Form 3.
