I’m considering purchasing a Form 3 printer and I’ve done my homework in reading lots of posts on these forums, and many different reviews. I see where the formlabs market exists with their robust line of materials, and the “white glove” plug and play experience that they offer.
What concerns me the most is the price of the consumables in relation to their lifetime. It seems that the form 2 tanks have a better system and lifetime than the Form 3. Is there anyone out there that can offer commentary on their experience of the form 3 tanks vs the form 2 tanks, lifetime of parts? In regards to resins, do people feel like they’re getting their money’s worth out of these cartridges?
And has formlabs taken care of the speed (Form 2 beats Form 3) and quality (warping, shifting layers) issues that were brought up last year with firmware updates?
With all of my readings I’m leaning towards a refurbished Form 2 instead of a Form 3, unless there’s something significant that I am missing.
Thanks in advance.
