FUSE 1

Take advantage of production-ready, nylon 3D printing with an affordable, compact selective laser sintering (SLS) platform

INSTINCTUAL

Designed for minimal upkeep with a touchscreen interface that guides you through every step of the printing process and maintenance.

EFFICIENT

From print setup to powder recovery, this printer’s user-friendly hardware and software was specifically designed to increase your production efficiency.

AFFORDABLE

Affordable material combined with powder recycling and reduced equipment cost makes the Fuse 1 the best choice for industrial quality printing.

SLS PRINTING

SLS printing gives high value with precision accuracy and a smooth surface finish. It requires the use of a post-curing station and finishing tools to remove excess powder, but creates strong, functional parts that do not need support structures.

FAST & SIMPLE SET UP

Use PreForm print preparation software to import part files, estimate print times, monitor printers, and much more.

ATTAINABLE SLS

The touchscreen shows a live stream of the print bed for real-time monitoring each new layer. This same view can be monitored from your computer so you don’t even have to leave your seat.

PRINTING YOU CAN COUNT ON

The unused, nylon powder supports printed parts during the printing process so you can create detailed designs without the need for support structures. Now you can have access to competitive, mechanical properties and surface finish without the immense cost of competitor systems.

BENCHTOP SLS

Industrial machines that were once too large to fit anywhere besides warehouses and labs, have now been scaled down enough to be stored and used in a shop or garage.

COMPLETE THE FUSE 1 ECOSYSTEM

The Fuse Sift is a safe, efficient powder recovery system for the Fuse 1 3D printer. This simple, all-in-one station combines part extraction, powder recovery, storage, and mixing in a single free-standing device. The Fuse Sift is known to be the 3D printer with the highest functionality in a single device available on the SLS market.

Compact, Enclosed System

A negative air pressure system keeps powder inside the finishing tool while enabling open access and easy cleanup.

Low Waste

The Fuse Sift’s sieve filters out particles to be recombined with new powder and reused in future prints.

Automatic Powder Mixing

The Fuse Sift will dispense and mix used and new powder automatically so you can reduce waste, stay hands-free and control your powder supply.

Nonstop Printing

Reduce downtime by transferring modular build chambers and powder cartridges between the Fuse 1 and Fuse Sift for a nonstop, cyclical workflow.

Complete Toolkit

The Fuse Sift includes a set of finishing tools to help you clean excess powder from parts with ease.

HOW IT CAN HELP

The Fuse’s build chamber is similar to the purpose of a resin tank – it deposits powder onto a heated aluminum plate to fuse into solid layers with a laser. As the print advances, the bed moves down into the build chamber. An IR sensor is used to monitor the print bed, powder, and layer temperatures as the product is printing. It uses the data to drive the heaters and thermally stabilize the printing environment. The Optical Cassette protects the laser window and camera lens from off-gases produced during printing. A set of LEDs illuminates the print enclosure to improve visibility of the bed during printing. Unlike most SLS printers, the Fuse draws in surrounding air through a filter to keep everything at a constant temperature, which helps prevent parts from warping due to thermal dissipation. Another feature that sets the Fuse apart, is that it uses thermoplastics rather than thermosets, powder rather than liquid resin, all while coordinating everything around 180°C during a print.

The Fuse 1 is also low waste. A 30% material refresh rate means you can print with up to 70% recycled powder, indefinitely. Fuse Sift’s sieve filters out particles to be remixed with new powder and reused in future prints.

COMPLETE YOUR 3D PRINTING EXPERIENCE

Streamline your 3D printing process with the Form Wash and Form Cure. Produce high-quality parts with less time and effort.

Originally, these solutions were developed to automate post-processing for the Form 2 and Form 3. If you are printing smaller parts (14.5 x 14.5 x 18.5 cm) on the Form 3L, the Form Wash and Form Cure may be viable solutions.

FORM WASH

The Form Wash agitates isopropyl alcohol (IPA) to flow around your parts to get them perfectly clean and raises parts to air dry once finished.

FORM CURE

Introducing the automated post-curing station, the Form Cure precisely controls temperature and light to cure 3D printed parts to their optimal performance properties.

This reliable, professional post-curing solution includes custom settings that maximize mechanical properties for each Formlabs material.

How much does Formlabs Fuse 1 cost?
The Fuse 1 printer starts at $18,499. Complete setup starts at $31,845. With reduced equipment cost, affordable material, and efficient powder recycling, Fuse 1 is the smart choice for industrial quality SLS 3D printing.
Is there a way to track the print in process in the Fuse 1?

Yes. During setup and printing, an intuitive Touch UI walks you through every step. The touchscreen displays a live stream of the print bed so you can watch each new layer take shape. This camera view is also available from your computer in PreForm so you can monitor your print without leaving your desk.

What are the benefits of SLS 3D printing technology?

SLS 3D printing technology allows for strong, complex designs. It does not require support structures and often functions as end-use parts. The Fuse 1 is designed to be accessible and easy to use. The typical setup time takes less than 1 hour until you are ready to print.

What is the average lifespan of a Formlabs printer?

The lifespan of your printer depends on many factors. However, all Formlabs printers must pass a rigorous endurance test. The 36-month design operation test ensures a long-lasting, quality printer.

What warranty comes with a Formlabs 3D printer?

Every Formlabs printer ships with a one-year warranty.
