Company Profile

3D Systems Asia-Pacific

On the 21st September, 2011 Formero and its subsidiary company XYZ Innovation commenced operating as 3D Systems Asia-Pacific Pty Ltd with an expanded range of products and services that include - 3D Printers, Design Productivity Tools, Prototyping and Manufacturing Services. 


 About Formero

The company was formed in the early 90’s, where it was a pioneer in the rapid prototyping industry.

In early 2000, we started to leverage international manufacturing services and new 3D printing technologies. During this time, the company distinguished itself with a reputation as a knowledge and technology leader in the Australian manufacturing industry.

In 2006 Formero’s subsidiary company, XYZ Innovation commenced trading and has been at the forefront of introducing new rapid prototyping and 3D printing technologies into Australian and New Zealand.  Our focus was to guide people and companies through the process of choosing the right technology to enhance their product development.  

In 2008 Formero established a manufacturing facility in Shenzhen, China to combat the ‘China Challenge’ experienced by many product developers outsourcing their Injection Moulding parts to China for a cheaper price. With project management teams operating in both Melbourne headquarters and Shenzhen, Formero offers high quality tooling and manufacturing services to meet customer requirements on-time and within budget. 

Apart from the name change to 3D Systems Asia-Pacific, we will continue to provide our Formero and XYZ Innovation customers and supplier relations with quality service by the same people, as we have in the past.

Moving forward 3D Systems Asia-Pacific will experience significant synergy and growth, leading to an expanded range of products and services that include - 3D Printers, Design Productivity Tools, Prototyping and Manufacturing Services.
