This universal cartridge enables you to print with any 3rd party resin in closed mode on your Form 2 & Form 3 printer. The cartridge enables all functions like the heater, wiper and auto refill. These functions increase part accuracy and quality. No more 100ml weld lines and print defects! The cartridge can be reprogrammed to any resin type and is easily reset when one liter of resin is used(normally, cartridges are disabled after 1 liter).
Why? Resins offered by Formlabs are expensive($180 per liter and up). Third party companies like ApplylabWork, Druckwege and Harzlabs offer high quality and specialty resins for much less(as low as $60 per liter). However one can only print in "open mode", which disables the wiper, heater and auto refill of the tank. There is no open mode in the Form 3 so you cannot use 3rd party resins without the universal cartridge.
Printing quality and accuracy is significantly better when printing in closed mode and some resins can only be printed in this mode and will otherwise fail when printing. This cartridge allows you to use the full functionality of the machine again.
Option 1 (Ready to run):
Option 2 (DIY module):
The universal cartridge is configured using a small tool which needs to run on a Windows PC. A small power supply (eg. 5v phone charger) is needed to power the cartridge while printing.
No cartridge is supplied with option 2(DIY). You need an empty and cleaned cartridge to install the module yourself. If you choose option 1, you do not have to do any modifications and the cartridge is ready to be used.
