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.

Please Note: The V5 formulation of Tough Resin is identical to V4. If you have an existing resin tank with V4 you can safely use a V5 cartridge with it as V4 and V5 can be safely mixed. Please see the image gallery for the image change.
This Formlabs Tough Resin Cartridge is made for the Form 2, Form 3 and Form 3L 3D printers.
Formlabs’ Tough Resin is designed for applications in engineering, manufacturing and prototyping. It’s a super-strong, super-tough and impact-resistant resin that answers all the durability challenges engineers face with 3D printing.
We have seen hammers, spanners, knives and forks and even snap-fit joints made from Tough Resin and promotional videos published by Formlabs show its ability to withstand hammer blows with ease. The material is similar to ABS, but it absorbs more energy than its plastic counterpart making it more durable.
As a result, Formlabs’ Tough Resin is best suited to high-impact and high-stress components and snap-fit joints and hinges, and it can also be machined after it’s been printed making it all the more versatile.
The downside to this insane strength and durability is a lack detail. It’s not the best resin for fine features or thin parts, or rigid or stiff prints. It also requires UV post-cure. But if you have the need for ABS-rivalling strength, then this resin is unrivalled in the Formlabs range.
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.
