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 firstname.lastname@example.org for help choosing.

Please note: Removable container holds a maximum of 8.6 L of IPA. IPA needs to be purchased separately.
The Formlabs Form Wash is a state-of-the-art automated wash station that’s been engineered to clean parts printed with the Form 2 3D printer.
New for 2017, the Form Wash is built to fit the build platform of the Form 2 perfectly. You insert your part or parts into the Form Wash on the build platform (or standalone, if you prefer) and leave it to do its thing. The automated wash system has an impeller that agitates 90% Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA) around parts, to clean them completely.
With its automated wash cycle, the Form Wash eliminates the need for manual washing and related post-processing. It saves you time and effort. The tank holds 8.6-litres of IPA, which is enough to clean the largest parts and up to 70 prints. Included in the box is a hydrometer, which is used to routinely test the IPA so you know when it needs changing.
Compared to manual washing, the Form Wash is seriously efficient. It times washes perfectly to eliminate the risk of warping which can occur if parts are submerged in IPA for too long, and there’s even a siphon which lets you quickly transfer IPA to a wash bucket.
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.
