Formlabs Form Auto hardware extension for Form 3+
Introducing Formlabs Form Auto, a hardware extension for Formlabs Form 3+ and Form 3B+ 3D printers, which is a part of the Formlabs Automation Ecosystem for SLA / LFS 3D Printing.
Working in tandem with the new Build Platform 2 with flexible steel-clad work surface, it automatically removes finished parts after printing and starts the next print without operator intervention. It's a fully turnkey solution for 24/7 production on your Formlabs photopolymer 3D printer, making affordable serial 3D printing a reality. Now your 3D printers will print continuously and without operator intervention.
Nonstop 3D printing - how does it work?
With any Form 3/B/+ printer, Build Platform 2 with patented Quick Release technology and Form Auto, you can easily turn your polymer printer into a 24/7 production line.
The Form Auto lifts the printer cap and removes the platform from it, detaches the parts from the platform and places them in a container ready for use in Form Wash. The platform automatically resets, and the next print is ready to go, without user intervention. The release action is recorded by the built-in camera. In this way, you can continuously and remotely monitor your production.
Form Auto supports non-cloud printing operations. In local mode, it allows you to print large volumes without using the Internet.
Formlabs Print Automation Ecosystem
Formlabs introduces the Automation Ecosystem that improves desktop 3D printing and accelerates the implementation of your new ideas to life. The Automation Ecosystem is a solution including three new products: Form Auto, Fleet Control, and High Volume Resin System.
- Form Auto is a hardware extension for any Form 3, Form 3+, Form 3B, or Form 3B+. Formlabs Automation Ecosystem Form Auto engineered to automatically remove parts and start the next print. This enables 24/7 printing without user interaction, minimizes costs per part and saves labor up to 80%.
- Fleet Control activates new, advanced features within PreForm and Dashboard software that leverage automation and workflow optimization for advanced fleet management through centralized queue management and automatic printer assignment.
- High Volume Resin System seamlessly delivers 5L of resin through a pumping system, allowing printers to run continuously with 5x fewer cartridge changes.
