Product description

The replacement/ spare part for Formlabs Form 2, and Form 3 3D Printers

Universal Cartridge Kit

With this kit, you can up-cycle an empty Formlabs cartridge to a Universal Cartridge. The universal cartridge enables you to print with any third-party resin in closed mode on your Form 2 & Form 3 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 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 are 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. 

Wiper - Enable the wiper to reduce the stick to the tank. This reduces tank to 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.

This Universal Cartridge can be reprogrammed to any Formlabs resin type and can be easily reset when the printer thinks the resin cartridge is empty (normally, cartridges are disabled after 1 liter).

You can also use an empty Universal Resin Cartridge as a stand-in. Just add resin directly in the VAT, and the printer thinks a fully functioning resin cartridge is present, so all functions, wiper, and heater keep working. This makes changing resins a lot easier because you only have to clean the resin vat.

How to modify a cartridge


How to select a resin profile


Some manufacturers producing resins and are confirmed working are ApplyLabWork, Photocentric, Digital Forge, 3DResyn, and Molecule.


  • While excellent results have been achieved, these resins and the universal cartridge are neither recommended nor supported by Formlabs. Use at your own risk.
  • Is it difficult to install a module myself into an empty cartridge? The modification requires a basic understanding of drilling and soldering. To install a module, you need to drill three holes in a cleaned cartridge, solder two wires, and glue the module in place.
