In 2011, three MIT graduate students built the first 3D printer that could achieve industrial, professional part quality at an affordable price. Through a continuous commitment to innovation, Formlabs has become the largest supplier of professional stereolithography (SLA) and selective laser sintering (SLS) 3D printers in the world.

Formlabs is expanding access to digital fabrication, so anyone can make anything. Headquartered in Somerville, Massachusetts with offices in Germany, Japan, China, Singapore, Hungary, and North Carolina, Formlabs is the professional 3D printer of choice for engineers, designers, manufacturers, and decision-makers around the globe.

Formlabs products include the Form 3+, Form 3B+, Form 3L, and Form 3BL powered by an advanced form of stereolithography (SLA) called Low Force Stereolithography (LFS)™ 3D printing, Form Wash and Form Cure SLA post-processing solutions. For selective laser sintering (SLS), Formlabs products include the Fuse 1+ 30W 3D printer for functional, industrial-quality parts, and the Fuse Sift, an all-in-one powder recovery system for the Fuse Series.

Through its Factory Solutions offering for industrial users, Formlabs provides the factories of tomorrow with the flexibility and versatility needed for demanding, evolving industrial applications. Formlabs also develops its own suite of high-performance materials that continue to push the boundaries for 3D printing, as well as best-in-class 3D printing software.
