.FORM File Association 2

A FORM file is a print job created by PreForm, a 3D printing program that prepares models for printing on a Formlabs printer. It contains model data from an .STL or .OBJ file imported in PreForm and includes print settings that specify how the model should be printed by a Formlabs printer.

FORM files are helpful for repeat print jobs since they allow you to save your printing settings. Instead of choosing the settings every time you print a model, you can use the FORM file to store the settings.

NOTE: If you ever encounter a problem with a Formlabs print job, it is important to have the FORM file you used in order to send it to Formlabs. They can analyze the file to determine the error(s) that occurred.
