The Next Generation of Industrial 3D Printing

A new wave of independent manufacturing and prototyping starts now with the Fuse 1. Bring production-ready nylon 3D printing onto your benchtop with an affordable, compact selective laser sintering (SLS) platform.

Intuitive:
The Fuse 1 is designed for minimal upkeep. A full color touchscreen interface guides you through every step of printing and maintenance.

Affordable:
With reduced equipment cost, affordable material, and efficient powder recycling, the Fuse 1 is the smart choice for industrial quality SLS 3D printing.

Efficient:
From print setup to powder recovery, our easy-to-use hardware and software are designed to maximize your efficiency at every step of the process.

MEET THE FUSE 1

A Convenient, Intuitive Workflow

FROM FUSE 1 TO FUSE SIFT

Fuse 1 and Fuse Sift

Fast, simple print setup.

Use Formlabs PreForm print preparation software (free to download and try) to import STL or OBJ part files, orient and arrange models, estimate print times, monitor your printers, and upload job files. PreForm’s part packing algorithms can automatically arrange many models in a build.

SLS made manageable.

During setup and printing, an intuitive Touch UI walks you through every step. The touchscreen displays a live stream of the print bed so you can watch each new layer take shape. This camera view is also available from your computer in PreForm so you can monitor your print without leaving your desk. Track printers, teams, and supplies via the cloud-based Dashboard.

Reliable, consistent printing

SLS 3D printing fuses nylon powder layer by layer. The unused powder supports the parts during printing so you can create complex, interconnecting designs with no need for support structures. With patent pending Surface Armor technology, a semi-sintered shell prints around the surface of the part. The Fuse 1 provides competitive mechanical properties and surface finish without the prohibitive cost or hassle of competitor systems.

Safe, efficient powder recovery.

Our all-in-one powder recovery station, Fuse Sift, combines part extraction, powder recovery, storage, and mixing in a single device.

Produce fully-functional parts at a 30% powder refresh rate—with unlimited cycles. This means you can print with up to 70% recycled powder. Fuse Sift will dispense and mix used and new powder automatically so you can reduce waste and control your powder supply.

Designed for nonstop throughput.

Add a second removable build chamber, compatible with the Fuse 1 and Fuse Sift, to enable continuous printing and reduce downtime. Industry leading cooldown times allow you to start a print 1–2 hours after your previous print has finished.

Nylon 12 Powder – A Material That Does It All

Balancing strength and detail, Nylon 12 Powder is a highly capable material for both functional prototyping and end-use production of complex assemblies and durable parts with high environmental stability. Our Nylon 12 Powder is specifically developed for use on the Fuse 1.

Powder-Nylon-Fuse1

Bring production-ready nylon 3D printing onto your benchtop with an affordable, compact selective laser sintering (SLS) platform.

The Fuse 1 delivers industrial power in a small footprint with effective powder containment and easy setup. From print setup to powder recovery, Formlabs easy-to-use hardware and software are designed to maximize your efficiency at every step of the process.
With final parts that combine strength, flexibility, and detail, Fuse 1 prints are ready for rigorous functional testing, or to ship ready-to-use products to customers.

COVID-19 Pandemic

Formlabs is dedicated to helping the medical community address the COVID-19 epidemic and associated supply chain shortages with 3D printing technology. We have many customers in the healthcare space already using Formlabs’ products to test applications for COVID-19 related projects, and recently launched the Formlabs Support Network for COVID-19 Response. This is an initiative to match healthcare organizations and providers with Formlabs customers who are willing to use their printers and volunteer their time to help address critical supply chain shortages and other healthcare needs. We are working closely with health systems, government agencies, and our network of over 1,500 volunteers to help design, prototype, and produce parts to be tested and potentially adopted by clinicians.
