An end-to-end package. Printer, software, and post-processing kit that just works. Right out of the box.

The Form 1 combines great design and solid engineering to simplify the entire printing process, from Form Software to the Form Finish post-processing kit.

The Form 1 is built for more demanding work. It prints objects by way of stereolithography, a form of 3D fabrication that uses an ultraviolet laser to cure liquid plastic resin. A laser “draws” the object by shooting into a reservoir filled with resin, and the resin hardens layer by layer as the laser does its work. This method gives you a very high-resolution print — 0.025 millimeters per layer, or 1/1000th of an inch — so it’s better suited to late-stage prototyping, tiny parts replacement, jewelry, and other things that require perfect edges and incredibly fine details. Stereolithography machines are professional tools. So of course, they’re inaccessible to most people, enormous machines that cost hundreds of thousand of dollars.

Setting the rig up for printing is as simple as plugging the Form 1 into the wall, connecting it to your PC via a USB cable, and installing the software. After that, you have to find something to print. The machine is limited to printing objects less than 4.9 inches wide, 4.9 inches deep, and 6.5 inches tall. and enough with the king neptune statues and coins as output examples! you can do better.
