zmorph-logo-600Some companies will appear on our radars for a while, vanish, and then suddenly reappear months or a year later with a new release or development. Then there are the companies whose presence in the news is almost constant, as they continue to upgrade and tweak, develop and innovate at a steady clip. ZMorph is one of the latter. They’re one of the more interesting companies to follow, as they made a name for themselves with the machine that does everything well before multipurpose 3D printers began to catch on. Since they first developed their “personal fabricator” in 2012, as a modification of an open source RepRap printer, they haven’t stopped updating it, adding to it, and improving it.

ZMorph2.0SX_2When the redesigned ZMorph 2.0 S was introduced in 2014, it was pretty mind-blowing, with its ability to print with everything from standard filament to ceramics to cake – not to mention its capabilities as a CNC milling machine, a laser cutter, and engraver. After the machine was released, ZMorph continued to add to it, introducing new extruders and toolheads on a regular basis. Now the company has announced that they’ve fully remodeled and upgraded the printer again. The ZMorph 2.0 SX is now available for order, and will be shipping at the beginning of May.

The 2.0 SX retains all of the features that make the 2.0 so appealing. It can still do pretty much everything except make you dinner (although it can make dessert!) but it has several new improvements that make the printing experience easier, more streamlined, and overall more enjoyable. It now features a closed loop system for more reliable, quality prints, plus a full-color LCD touchscreen with an intuitive interface. The quality of the printer’s construction has been upgraded, as well – all structural components are now made from metal, with plastic being relegated to non-critical parts only.

The printer’s work area is now fully enclosed, ensuring better safety and cleanliness plus a more stable printing temperature. Prints are still easy to monitor and access thanks to lift-off front and rear covers, and a filament guide system can now be attached to the spool holders on either side of the printer.

ZMorph2.0SX_3While the machine itself only comes equipped with a single plastic extruder and CNC milling toolhead (additional toolheads are sold separately), there’s still plenty for multi-tool fans to be excited about:

“Already known for their interchangeable toolheads, the company is enhancing that modularity with the ZMorph 2.0 SX offering backward compatibility for existing extruders, upgrade paths for suitable modules and additional features for forward compatibility such as a new expansion slot on the X-Carriage,” the company states. “Several plug-and-use add-ons will be made available such as additional filament monitors and fans, advanced extruders and experimental toolheads. New rapid worktable change latches provide a precise location in conjunction with the interchangeable toolheads. They allow users to quickly change the function of the machine from 3D printer to CNC mill, to laser engraver without requiring extensive re-calibration.”

The ZMorph 2.0 SX is available now to order for €2390, or $2690. You can check it out in more detail here. Discuss in the Updated ZMorph 2.0 SX 3D Printer forum over at 3DPB.com.
