A large format 3D printer for medical professionals to scale up your production and print biocompatible materials with the Form 3BL


The Form 3BL is raising the bar for 3D printing in the medical industry. With an expansive build volume of 33.5 x 20 x 30 cm (13.2 x 7.9 x 11.* in), printing life-sized patient anatomy in a single build is now a possibility. Optimized specifically for biocompatible and engineering materials, the Form 3BL has been intuitively designed with functional hardware and software. This makes the Form 3BL the reliable choice for medical professionals.

the benefits are real


The custom-designed Light Processing Unit (LPU) inside the printer uses a compact system of lenses and mirrors to deliver accurate, repeatable prints.

  • Crisp, Clean Features: The high-power-density laser passes through a spatial filter to guarantee a clean laser spot.
  • Consistent Printing: A parabolic mirror ensures that the laser prints perpendicular to the build plane to maintain uniform print quality across the entire build platform.
  • Improved Part Clarity: With LFS technology’s improved layer registration and surface finish, translucent materials print clearer than ever, right off the printer.


The Form 3 constantly monitors print performance so you can focus on bringing your most creative ideas to life. Integrated sensors help maintain ideal print conditions and send you alerts about the state of your machine.

  • Closed-Loop Calibration: Optical sensors continuously correct for scale, power and can even detect dust.
  • Hassle-Free Materials Management: Switch between materials in seconds with a simple cartridge system.
  • User-Replaceable Components: The Light Processing Unit, rollers, and optics window can be replaced in-house, reducing the need for replacement printer shipments.


Whether you start with one 3D printer or many, you can always add capacity as demand grows. Use the same tool from prototyping into production and easily expand into new applications.

  • Industrial Quality: The Form 3 offers industrial capabilities at a fraction of the price of traditional industrial machines.
  • Plug & Print: Formlabs 3D printers are ready to plug and print right out of the box – no specialized training required.
  • Avoid Delays: Bringing production in-house with the Form 3 provides the fast turnaround time and flexibility you need to scale.
