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.
Markforged 3D printers are a new breed of printer. They print with composites, to create parts up to 20x stiffer and 5x stronger than ABS plastic parts. Engineers have already put their Markforged printers to good use and you can buy your Markforged printer and supplies right here at GoPrint3D. And if you need any help choosing the right 3D printer for your needs, give our team a call on 01765 540 115 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Using Markforged's new ADAM technology, the Metal X makes metal 3D printing more accessible than ever before.
To determine how much money your organisation could save with the Metal X, contact our team about a cost benefit analysis.
Please note: You may see the Metal X being advertised elsewhere with a laser inspection tool. This is incorrect, although originally advertised by Markforged when first announced, the Metal X doesn't include the laser inspection tool.
From the company that revolutionised carbon fibre, Kevlar and fibreglass 3D printing comes a new breakthrough in metal 3D printing. The Metal X is a metal 3D printer that utilises a process called ADAM (Atomic Diffusion Additive Manufacturing) to print parts. This process uses metal powder and bulk sintering to create true-to-design solid metal parts, that can be made from a wide range of metals including Titanium 6-4 and 17-4 stainless steel.
The Metal X - The Ultimate Metal 3D Printer
The Metal X has a build volume of 300 mm x 220 mm x 180 mm (WDH) with an enclosed build chamber. It can print down to a layer height of 50-microns, and the user can make use of honeycomb infills and other geometries which would be impossible with subtractive and traditional manufacturing processes.
Atomic Diffusion Additive Manufacturing
3D printing metal parts has never been simpler than with the Metal X. Atomic Diffusion Additive Manufacturing prints your part using a bound metal powder surrounded by plastic. The plastic is then dissolved, and the metal powder sintered. The resulting parts are solid metal, with the same strength and durability as metal parts that have been cast.
The Metal X can 3D print several metals, including: 17-4 Stainless Steel, H-13 Tool Steel, 6061 Aluminum (Beta), 7075 Aluminum (Beta), A-2 Tool Steel (Beta), D-2 Tool Steel (Beta), Copper (Beta), IN Alloy (Inconel) 625 (Beta) and Titanium Ti-6Al-4V (Beta). The metals with beta next to them are currently in the last stages of testing, and will be approved for customers soon.
What People Say
“Not only is the material used with the Metal X meant to be safe to handle, but the ADAM process offers design and production advantages that powder bed processes don’t have.”
– Michael Molitch-Hou
“If you can afford a half million to million dollar metal printer, buy one. For the rest of the world, this is for you”
–Greg Mark, Markforged CEO
Founded in 2013, Massachusetts-based Markforged are the creators of the world’s first composite printing 3D printer, capable of printing nylon, fibreglass, carbon fibre and Kevlar.
The company’s first 3D printer, the Mark One, was launched in 2015 and its successor, the Mark Two, was launched in 2016. Designed specifically for engineering and design applications, Markforged 3D printers boast industrial-strength mechatronics and the ability to 3D print parts as strong as 6061 aluminium. Owing to this, the Mark One and Mark Two are ideally suited to aerospace, aviation, automotive, biotechnology and construction.
Markforged’s 3D printers have a dual extruder setup with one extruder dedicated to printing nylon and the other dedicated to printing composite. Using unique composite reinforcement technology, nylon parts are reinforced with continuous strands of fibre to give them incredible strength. There are a few different versions of each printer however, which may confuse some. There’s the Standard, Professional and Enterprise. Enterprise adds the ability to print high-temp fibreglass in addition to the Professional’s ability to print fibreglass, carbon fibre and Kevlar. The Standard can print fibreglass and carbon fibre only.
Markforged 3D printers have already found their way into numerous industries, with an obvious application being the ability to replace CNC with 3D printing. The Mark Two was a significant upgrade over the Mark One, so the rumoured Mark Three will be incredible.
