Boston-based MIT Media Lab spinoff Formlabs has today launched two new 3D printers at the Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) show in Chicago, and at Hannover Messe show in Germany. The new Form 3 and Form 3L feature a new process the company calls Low Force Stereolithography (LFS) which "uses a custom-designed system of lasers and mirrors and a flexible film tank to cure solid isotropic parts from liquid resin with pinpoint precision."

“We entered the industry seven years ago with the first powerful, affordable desktop SLA 3D printer and since then have shipped more than 50 thousand printers, and our customers have printed more than 40 million parts,” co-founder and CEO Max Lobovsky said in a press release. “We’re excited to take another huge leap forward with LFS 3D printing, dramatically improving the print quality and reliability people can expect while still offering the most powerful and affordable 3D printer on the market.”
