I noticed Formlabs doesn’t sell the bottles of resin for the Form 1+ anymore. Does anyone know where I can get more resin for it?
If you want to use their resin, you can simply buy a cartridge, then pour the contents into the printer vat.
Alternately, you can buy 3rd party resins like ApplyLabWorks, which work perfectly fine in the older printers (Form 1/1+, Form 2)
Black Resin 1 L
works fine in my 1+
ApplyLabWork Black. 1L same material properties as the Formlabs RS-F2-GPBK-04: $70. Uses the same profile in PreForm.
I’d just like to chime in and say that not all Formlabs modern resins are optimized for the Form 1+ anymore. I have had much better luck with the Clear V4 equivalent from ApplyLabWorks than the Formlabs Grey V4 for example.
All of our standard resins (Black, Clear, Grey, and White), as well as our High Temperature Resin are still compatible with the Form 1 and Form 1+. Simply pour the contents of the cartridge into the printer vat and you’re ready to print!
If you’re having issues printing with these resins, the issue is likely with your machine. As a first step, we recommend cleaning the mirrors. However, if that doesn’t work or if you would like more guidance on the process, be sure to reach out to our support team! They’ll be happy to help you start printing with compatible resins.
Thank you for the correction! I’ll be in touch
