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. 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 email@example.com for help choosing.

New for 2017, Formlabs Dental Model Resin is a high-accuracy 3D printing material that has been specifically engineered for 3D printing crown and bridge models with dies.
The mechanical properties of Dental Model Resin are ISO 20795-2:2013 compliant.
Dental professionals can use Dental Model Resin to 3D print highly-detailed, highly-accurate fixed prosthetic models. Models printed with Dental Model Resin have a shelf-worthy appearance fresh from the print bed, with a matte finish and outstanding levels of detail.
Of course, a key consideration for dental professionals when it comes to 3D printing prosthetics is accuracy. With regards to this, Formlabs’ laboratory tests found that Dental Model Resin prints accurate margins and contacts within ± 35 microns. The full accuracy test was conducted by Dr Michael Scherer, and you can view the white paper here.
Cost-effective and scalable 3D printing has the potential to revolutionise dentistry. Dental Model Resin is the ideal material for printing prosthetic models. If you are looking for a biocompatible resin, then we recommend Dental SG or Dental LT Resin. These resins are suitable for 3D printing surgical drill guides and splints, among other devices.
Please note: Dental Model Resin is compatible with the Formlabs Form 2 3D printer only.
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 one of the finest SLA desktop 3D printers on the market - the Formlabs Form 2.
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.
Although the Form 2 is Formlabs’ latest 3D printer, they still manufacture its predecessor the Form 1+ which was announced in 2014. The Form 1+ has a 40 per cent smaller build volume than the Form 2 and it is slower and less precise. For this reason, the Form 2 is the best option for any application, and we recommend this model first and foremost. The gulf in class between the 1+ and 2 offers a tantalising glimpse into the future for Formlabs, though, with future Formlabs 3D printers expected to be even faster and more accurate.
