Formlabs Form 2 Review: Great Resin 3D Printer

The Formlabs Form 2 is our summer 2019 pick for the “Best Resin 3D Printer”. Check out our review to find out why it was the best SLA 3D printer at this time.

When it comes to 3D printing, FDM printers take all the glory; Ultimakers, Prusas, and Crealitys are talked about constantly. Their machines offer makers, hobbyists, and semi-pros great creative tools. But FDM printers aren’t the only choice when it comes to 3D printing.

If you are looking for professional printers that can deliver stunning details, stereolithography (SLA) machines are the right choice. They work with resin instead of thermoplastics. As of 2018, there are cheap SLA machines targeting hobbyist – and then there’s the category of SLA 3D printers that can be found in labs, professional fabs, universities, and engineering spaces.

Formlabs holds the number 1 position for several years now. At $3,500 / €3,925, their flagship 3D printer Form 2 doesn’t come cheap. But it’s a fraction of the price you would pay for a 3D Systems ProJet 6000 HD.
