A Gallery of Form 1+ Prints

by | Apr 6, 2015 | 3D Printing | 0 comments

The Form 1+ uses stereolithography rather than fused filament fabrication (FFF). Instead of taking a plastic filament, melting it, and pushing it through a little hole onto the build platform like most desktop 3D printers do, the Form 1+ uses a light-sensitive resin, which it uses a laser to harden and build models. This page contains an ever-growing gallery of miscellaneous 3D prints made using the Formlabs Form 1+.

Sunbathing

The sunbathing model (Thingiverse thing:142032) is a good benchmark print because it has a good range of different features including fine details, smooth curves, overhangs, undercuts, and high importance for surface finish.

Servo Bracket Prints

In these relatively large prints, you can see the support structures used by the Form 1+ still in place.

Marvin, the 3D Hubs Mascot

3D Hubs is an online 3D printing services that connects people with models to print with local owners of 3D printers. Marvin is the company’s mascot. All new Hubs are required to print a Marvin model to verify the capabilities of their 3D printer.

Minimum Feature Size Test #1

Many of the prints in this gallery illustrate the quality the Form 1+ is capable of achieving, but to really determine, in an objective way, the actual performance of the Form 1+, some test prints are needed. These minimum feature tests, based on a Formlabs forum thread on the subject,  consists of increasingly small features, both positive features (round and square pegs) and negative features (round and square holes). The prints in this section were done using a layer thickness of 0.05mm, which is the medium layer thickness on the Form 1+.
