I was so put off by some of the negative comments regarding the Form3 that I refused to pick up one. We currently have 6 Form 2’s and were pretty happy. Finally I broke down and had one shipped out. The Form3 is an absolute game changer. And I’ll tell you why:
In the past it was nearly impossible to get straight geometric parts. The peel forces were so great on the Form2 that as the part was built it slowly twisted ( mildly of course ) and deformed the piece of geometry such that you were really limited to what prototypes you could do. Little figurines weren’t such a problem because you would never notice very mild deformation on an organic shape like that. But our new project 1/4 scale engines was a disaster on the Form2’s. Straight or round cylinder heads etc never came out right.
Then comes the Form3. Because the Peel forces have been lessened so greatly all of the prints attempted have been spot on! We are so pleased. So instead of having to outsource to labs with polyjet machines ( no way on FDM for these parts ) for thousands of dollars we can do it all on the Form3.
You just have to hand it to the company, its such an evolution this new machine. I have had NONE of the problems folks have espoused on other threads. Have they been fixed somehow on the recent shipments? I have no idea. I know I sound like an ad but I’ve beat on the company when I thought it was due, fair is fair time to let folks know what a great job has been done with this new printer.
