I’m happy to announce that the Z-Vat 2 is now available. Continuing off of the popularity of the original Z-Vat, the Z-Vat 2 is a glass bottom resin tray compatible with the Form 2.
The Z-Vat 2 is built from a modified stock Form 2 tray: the standard acrylic base window is removed and replaced with an optical glass plate. By employing the original manufacturer’s tray in its design, the Z-Vat 2 preserves all the functionality of the Form 2 while utilizing the additional benefits of printing with glass.
The Z-Vat 2 is obtainable in two different ways:
-You can purchase one outright. Inventory is limited (about ten available at the time of this writing) and will be restocked as often as manufacturing capabilities allows.
-You can send in your Form 2 Tray, new or used, to be modified into a Z-Vat 2 and returned to you. Turnaround time for this service is eight business days or less.
More details, including the advantages of printing with glass, is located on the product pages. You can also see our other Formlabs-compatible accessories, including Yellow Magic 7, the Z-Slip dust/light cover and PDMS re-coat services.
If you own a Form 2 but are are not interested in a Z-Vat 2, please note that we buy used/spent Form 2 resin trays. if you would like to sell us your used trays, please see our FAQ for more information.
