|Types of Material||Software|
|FormLabs Form 2||145 x 145 x 175||FormLabs Resin||PreForm||25||Our newest printer is also our highest quality printer. It is approximately twice as expensive to print on as an FDM printer, but it is extremely reliable and the quality of the prints is incredible. The most popular of the resins is the clear resin, because of the impressive quality of the finished product and the cool factor of seeing the laser cure the resin.|

The software allows you to create tree-like supports which are really awesome. It is a reliable printer that can also do some dual-material/color because of the two hotends.|
|285.4 x 270.4 x 230||PLA, ABS||CubePro||70||This printer is basically the only one that we should print ABS on, as ABS generally requires a heated area to be printed in to avoid shrinking. The software is clunky and the pre-printing process is a pain in the rear, but it's fine.|
