Built to complete the stereolithography (SLA) engine, Form Wash and Form Cure streamline your 3D printing process to produce better results with less time and effort.
MAXIMUM MECHANICAL PROPERTIES WITH FORM CURE
Advanced Heating: Precise heat control is the key to successful post-curing. Form Cure’s chamber is able to achieve temperatures of up to 80°C
Balanced UV Light: 13 LEDs use 405 nm Light to trigger the post-curing reaction, working with the heater to post-cure parts.
Uniform Exposure: A rotating turntable, heat flow, and dispersed lights provide uniform exposure during post-curing.
An Intuitive Interface: It’s easy to set Form Cure’s temperature and post-cure time. For Standard Resins, simply use the default. For all other materials, use recommended settings for optimum performance.

Features of Form Cure
ADVANCED HEATING: Precise temperature control provides successful post-curing. The Form Cure chamber heats up to 80 °C
BALANCED LIGHT: 13 LEDs emit 405nm light to trigger the post-curing reaction, working with the heater to post-cure parts
UNIFORM EXPOSURE: A rotating turntable, forced-air heating, and multi-directional LEDs uniformly post-cure parts
Why post-curing is required.
Post curing by exposing the Form 2 printed part to 405nm light, triggers the formation of additional chemical bonds, increasing material performance. The heat accelerates this curing process and enables a more complete bond formation, resulting in optimal material properties, increasing strength, peak performance, and cleaner burn-outs for castable resins.
