Formlabs Fuse 1+ 30W Benefits

Formlabs Fuse 1+ Operation

SLS, made manageable from wherever you are

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.

Take control of your production across multiple locations and machines. Track print jobs and material flow all in one cloud-based Dashboard to ensure minimum downtime and maximum output.

Formlabs preform software

Simple, fast print set up

With Formlabs Preform print preparation software to import STL or OBJ part files, estimate print times, orient and arrange models, monitor your printers and upload job files.

PreForm’s part packing algorithms can automatically arrange many models in a build to maximize the packing density, reduce print time, and limit waste.

SLS 3D Printing

Reliable Printing

SLS 3D Printing works by fusing nylon powder layer by layer.

You can create interconnecting, complex designs with no need for support structures as the unused powder supports the parts during printing.

The Fuse 1+ offers competitive mechanical properties and surface finish without the prohibitive cost or hassle.

SLS recycling

All-in-one powder recycling and recovery

The Fuse Sift, combines part extraction, powder recovery, storage, and mixing in a single device.

Produce fully-functional parts with competitively high powder recyclability to enable less waste and lower cost per part.

Fuse Sift will dispense and mix used and new powder automatically so you can reduce waste and control your powder supply.

Formlabs SLS 3D Printing Process

SLS Process Step 1


Use the free print preparation software, PreForm, to import STL, OBJ, or 3MF files, orient models, estimate print times, and pack parts for optimized density, reducing print time and limiting waste.

SLS Process Step 2


Easily set up your Fuse 1+ 3D printer and achieve fast printing thanks to the 30W laser. Print same-day prototypes and enable small series manufacturing of durable end-use parts in under 24 hours.

SLS Process Step 3


All-in-one powder management station combines part extraction, powder recovery, storage, and mixing in a single device. Fuse Sift will dispense and mix used and new powder automatically so you can reduce waste and control your powder supply.


SLS Process Step 4


Fuse Blast is an advanced automated finishing solution for SLS parts that quickly removes powder and consistently delivers professional parts that are clean to the touch. Deliver a smooth, semi-gloss, and dye-ready surface finish with the polishing option.
