The universal cartridge enables you to print with any third party resin in closed mode on your Form 2, Form 3 & & Form 3L (2 units) printer using any of the Formlabs resin profiles. The cartridge enables all functions like the heater, wiper and auto refill. These functions increase part accuracy and quality.
Resins offered by the manufacturer are expensive ($180 per liter and up). There are several companies like DruckWege, ApplyLabWork offering high quality and special SLA resins for much less. However, they can only print in the so called ‘open mode’, which disables the wiper, heater and auto filling of the resin tank. Printing quality, accuracy and consistency is much higher when printing in closed mode and some resins can only be printed in this mode and will otherwise fail during printing. In ‘open mode’, the printer will pause after 100ml of resin use, this causes a line/defect in your print. As the resin tank is automatically topped up in ‘closed mode’, you can print as much resin as your model needs without babysitting. Closed mode enables
- Wiper: Enable the wiper to reduce stick to the tank. This reduces tank wear and improves part accuracy. Resin stays mixed and consistent.
- Auto dispensing: Automatically dispense resin into the tank when needed. No more 100ml print limitations, no print line. and no babysitting
- Heater: Resin is sensitive to temperature fluctuations which influences the cure rate. Enable the heater to improve printing accuracy.
