With the launch of the Form 3 we are excited to introduce Low Force Stereolithography technology so you can fabricate parts in-house with incredible quality. Lower forces on parts leads to incredible surface finish, higher precision and a platform for cutting-edge materials development. However, some of our resins are not yet validated for production on the Form 3.
Rigid, Elastic and Grey Pro are incompatible with the current Form 3 Resin Tank and so they cannot be printed on the Form 3 at this time. We are committed to developing a solution to ensure compatibility between these three resins and Form 3 tanks, but currently do not have one that meets our standards.
We know that setbacks like this can disrupt your workflow and we apologize for any inconvenience this causes. We do not have an established timeline for when these resins will become available for the Form 3. We will let everyone know as quickly as possible when that changes.
If you are looking to emulate the material properties of these resins, please consider the following alternatives:
Unavailable Resin → Alternative Suggested Resin
Grey Pro → Tough
Elastic → Flexible
Rigid → Standard (Note: Standard has less rigidity)
You can also learn more about our library of Engineering Resins on our website, here.
Just to be clear, the performance of these resins on the Form 2 are not affected at all, and will continue to print at the high quality you’ve come to expect from our materials.
Again, we apologize for this delay in resin availability for your Form 3. We’ll continue to work hard to remedy this situation as efficiently as possible.
