This Formlabs Form 2 SLA liquid resin photopolymer 3D printer achieves an end result that looks almost indistinguishable from injection molded parts. The only big drawback is the cost of material since photopolymer’s are incredibly expensive to produce compared to filament conventional FDM printers use.
▼ The Pros ▼
1) Very accurate with no material shrinkage like FDM.
2) Insanely high resolution that makes prints looks injection molded.
3) Prints bridge’s perfectly flat with no sag or stringing like FDM.
4) The support material is very simple to remove with flush cuts.
5) Print speed at same resolution is much faster than FDM.
6) The printer is very quiet compared to FDM.
7) Swapping materials is very simple and fast.
8) The software package is amazing and simple to use.
9) The printer connects wirelessly making it simple to send jobs to.
10) Perfect layer adhesion with no gaps, lines or bubbles between layers.
11) Can print completely translucent parts with clear material.
12) Can print high temp (flame) resistant parts with certain resins.
13) Room temp and humidity don’t impact performance like FDM.
14) Materials are perfectly calibrated to the printer, no need to play with temps, speeds, etc like with FDM.
15) Can be set to an open mode to work with 3rd party resins (cheaper alternatives)
16) Highly repeatable printing, once you get a model setup right it will print the same over and over without deviation like FDM.
17) Printed parts are completely solid, no weak spots between layers like FDM
18) Frequent software and firmware updates to further improve printing performance. I’ve had 3 updates since I received the printer.
19) Machine tracks material use and automatically reloads and refills tank to ensure when you start a print you know it will finish.
20) You can print absolutely tiny things with massive detail. See my instagram for some example pictures.
▼ The Cons ▼
1) The material is massively expensive ranging from 0-0 per cartridge (1L). For comparison FDM equivalent would be – for 1kg roll.
2) You must clean prints with alcohol and UV cure them after printing (time consuming + extra consumable).
3) You need to use gloves when handling parts coated in resin.
4) The tanks wear out over time and must be replaced (~ USD).
5) Cleaning up after a failed print can be time-consuming if it goes really wrong.
7) The software will sometimes miss support on complex models so you need to manually check your layers before committing to a print.
8) More waste byproducts since you throw out cartridges, tanks and support material since it cannot be recycled.
9) After you experience an SLA print you’ll struggle going back to your FDM printer even though it’s cheaper to print on.
10) Your friends and family will hassle you to print them figures for their table top games like D&D and Warhammer. Not even kidding on this one.
11) Small build volume compared to similarly priced FDM printers however very large compared to other SLA printers. I will still keep my FDM printers around for printing very large stuff that doesn’t require amazing detail.

▼ Questions & Answers ▼
Q) How durable is the material?
A) Depends on which material you use, see the library of materials on formlabs.com website including some crazy materials like one that can withstand high heat, something FDM materials can’t do.
Q) Why not just print everything on this and sell your FDM printers?
A) Cost of material… Video Rating: / 5

Mind blowing creations from 3 dimensional printed objects.

Ever since Johannes Gutenberg invented the printing press around 1439, we have been obsessed with creating the perfect printer to preserve and put our ideas on paper. The printing press was probably one of the most innovative and life-changing inventions as it made literacy more accessible. No longer did people have to write and transcribe thousands of pages, one at a time. But instead, books like the Bible could be mass produced at a quick pace. Over the hundreds of years since Gutenberg’s invention, the printer has evolved into devices like the typewriter and the laser jet printer. But today, in the 21st century, the printer has taken a dramatic turn that will change our society just as much as Gutenberg’s printing press changed his society: the 3D printer. This isn’t science fiction, this is the real deal, and it’s coming to a home or business near you.
The 3D printer is a technological breakthrough that involves a computer communicating with the printer to create layers as it “prints” a 3D creation from the computer. Layer upon layer is laid down as the object comes to life. Stemming back to the 1980’s, the 3D printer has gone through many trials, tests, and breakthroughs, and they are now becoming available to the regular household market. Today, you can do more than make a 3D printing of that flower you designed on your computer. People have started to print functional guns, cars, and houses. All it takes is some patience and intricate design. This can be both good and a bad thing, especially since guns can now become available to nearly anyone who can print them at home.
In Japan, 3D printers have become available on the streets where people can have 48 cameras take a photo of them, and then create a little 3D figurine of themselves. It’s quite an interesting device and people can create 3D figures of celebrities, animals, objects, and more. 3D printing can even create food, and nursing homes are taking advantage of it because they can create softer foods that look like real food. The 3D printing world has also made a huge impact in the medical field, as custom prosthetics can be printed as well as other body parts like bones. This will be able to cut the cost of manufacturing prosthetics and can make body parts more accessible to the disabled. Speaking of the medical field, just like how food can be printed, doctors are also experimenting with the printing of medications. Pretty soon, you won’t need to stand in long lines at the pharmacy and you can print your medications instead.
Believe it or not, this is just the beginning of the 3D printing world, and it doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. Just like how the internet slowly crept into our lives, this amazing type of technology will likely be in every household in the next decade. It truly is looking like our lives will be something out of a science fiction film or comic.
