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 email@example.com.

The X3 allows for custom tooling without the limitations found with traditional machining. Including a full sensor suite, motor encoders, ultra flat gantry system and a calibration laser accurate to 1 micron, the X3 prints parts exactly as you design them.
Launched in August 2017, the Markforged X3 introduces affordable industrial-grade 3D printing to smaller manufacturers. With it, you can 3D print parts that are 20 per cent stronger and 40 per cent stiffer than those printed with ABS, and you’ll enjoy unmatched precision courtesy of Markforged’s latest-generation motor encoders.
A True Manufacturing Solution
The X3 is one of the most advanced 3D printers on the market. It has a durable all-aluminium enclosure built around a flat gantry system.
You won’t be left wanting for space either. The X3 offers a 330-mm x 270 mm x 200 mm build volume for manufacturing both small and large parts, and it prints at a layer height of 50um. The printer has been setup to work straight from the box with minimal fuss, making it the perfect choice for demanding manufacturing environments.
High-Strength 3D Printing with Onyx
Traditional thermoplastics, such as ABS, have mechanical limitations. Whilst durable, they lack the strength and stiffness for truly harsh end-use applications. The Markforged X3 prints with Onyx, a fusion of engineering nylon and chopped carbon fibre. Onyx is 20 per cent stronger and 40 per cent stiffer than ABS, and it is 3.5 times stronger than nylon.
Because it contains nylon, Onyx is highly resistant to wear (abrasion) and has a high heat deflection temperature. Thanks to the X3’s 50um print resolution, layer lines are virtually invisible so parts have a smooth, good looking surface fresh from the print bed. This all but eliminates the need for post-processing, leading to greater efficiency.

What People Say
“High-temperature-capable carbon fiber-filled nylon ‘Onyx’ gives it [the X3] the ability to print unbelievably durable parts.”
– Rawal Ahmed, 3D Printing
“ MARTAC can create a complex, custom geometry that doesn’t need to conform to subtractive machining constraints”
– MARTAC Case Study
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.
