ZMorph is always a fun company to write about. Not only are their multi-functional 3D printer/CNC miller/laser cutter/3D scanner machines really neat in themselves, but the company seems to be continually coming up with ways to keep their customers interested, entertained and happy – whether through the regular introduction of new toolheads, or through special promotions like the materials bundle they’ve just introduced. Until the end of March, every machine purchased through ZMorph’s online shop will come with a free CNC Bits & Materials Bundle and/or a Filament Fun Pack!
It’s a pretty excellent deal, actually. The bits and materials included in the CNC bundle include extra milling drills, wood, plywood, plexiglass and PCB boards, while the Filament Fun Pack contains 8kg of 1.75mm filament.
“If we’d try to unwind the whole 8 kg/17,6 lb of filaments from the spools, we could get over 3 km/1,8 mi long cord of material, equal to the length of 12 railroad cars,” ZMorph proclaims. “This amount of filament can be used to print an astounding number of 2006 chess pieces!”
- ABS in black, white, blue and red
- PLA in silver, fluorescent yellow, fluorescent orange, pink, bronze gold, and glow in the dark
- HIPS in iron gray and natural
- Flex 65, a semi-flexible filament in black
- Glassbend, a crystal clear semi-flexible filament with the appearance of glass
- Wood filament with the appearance, texture and smell of real wood
- Thermo-PLA, a dark gray filament that changes color above 29˚C
- PVA-M, a cold water soluble support material for dual extruder 3D printing
Obviously, there’s a lot you can do with a bundle like this, which, if purchased separately, would cost you €250; the CNC bundle would run you about €74. The Filament Fun Pack and CNC Bits & Materials Bundle both come with purchases of the ZMorph 2.0 S Full Set or 2.0 S Essential Set. If you’re looking to go a bit cheaper and want to 3D print or CNC mill only, you can buy the 2.0 S Precise Printing Set, which includes fun filaments, or the 2.0 S CNC Set, with comes with CNC bits.
The offer is only good until March 31, so jump on it now. Again, it’s only available if you purchase through ZMorph’s website, but some of the company’s retailers are offering bargains of their own. DesignBox 3D, ZMorph’s US reseller, is offering a discount of 15% off all ZMorph machines until March 20 – just enter the code SPRING15 at checkout. Sadly, no extras are included, but it’s still a pretty decent deal. If you’ve been thinking about investing in a ZMorph but have been hesitating because of the cost, it seems like now’s the time to take that step. Are you interested in this latest promotion?
