We are the 3D printing arm of a larger company called Express Group Ltd. Fixing printers since 1988, today we are a Specialist Parts Distributor and Experts in 3D Printing.
We take quality control very seriously, which is why we are audited for ISO9001:2015 certification, this helps ensure we provide great customer service.
Formlabs created the world’s first affordable, high resolution stereolithography 3D printer in the Form 1+ and they improved upon their award-winning machine with the Form 2 and now the Form 3. With an intuitive, stylish and robust design, all Formlabs printers are perfect for rapid prototyping and end-use parts. Discover our full range of Formlabs products below, or give our team a call on 01765 540 115 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for help choosing.

The build platform plays a key role in the performance of the Form 2 and Form 3 3D printer. Without it, the printer simply wouldn’t be much use at all. That’s because the build platform pulls your model upwards, out and clear of the resin tank so that the wiper system can operate and the automated heated resin tank can do its work, refilling the tank with new resin.
To work effectively, the build platform needs to get good adhesion to prints. If there’s a lack of adhesion then it won’t be able to lift the print from the resin tank. As a result, it’s essential to take good care of your build platform – and to also have a spare lying around, should the worst happen.
So what should you do if your build platform becomes damaged? Quite simply, it’s time to buy a new one. These parts are not serviceable at the customer level and any tinkering or fettling with them can seriously compromise the printer’s performance.
The good news is that build platforms are hardy components and so buying a new one is a cost-effective investment. Buy yours with us today for a fantastic price, and don’t forget to check out our other Form 2 and Form 3 accessories, including resin tanks and 1L cartridges.
Founded in 2011, Massachusetts-based 3D printer manufacturer Formlabs are one of the leaders in the desktop-class stereolithography (SLA) 3D printer market.
Since being founded, Formlabs has invested considerably in research and development to create and manufacture what is without doubt an industry leader for desktop 3D printing - the Formlabs Form 3.
Utilising stereolithography as opposed to the better-known fused filament fabrication 3D printing process, you can print high-resolution models that you wouldn’t necessarily be able to with an FFF 3D printer. This reality has put the Formlabs Form series of 3D printers in engineering, design, research, medical, dentistry, art and many other industries that require consistent, high resolution parts and models.
