FormLabs2 SLA Printer

The FormLabs Form2 printer is an advanced SLA 3D printer which uses resin instead of PLA.

Background: The Form2 produces a finished product with a higher level of detail and finish quality than that of PLA Printers. The tradeoff for improved quality is an extended post-print process and higher cost. This means that the resin objects need to be washed in Isopropyl Alcohol and then UV cured before use. Supports cannot be simply peeled away as they must be clipped at the connection to the object. In most cases prints require more sanding than PLA prints depending on the type of print.
