While you may not have actually seen the new ZMorph 2.0 SX Multitool 3D Printer yet, if you’ve been following along over the past months, you are well aware that it is here—and more than just your ordinary upgrade. But ‘ordinary’ is hardly something we ever associate with this Polish company that seems to corner the market on versatile. Lately, they’ve seen major milestones with the introduction in April, the release and shipping of the 2.0 SX in May along with new additions to the company, and inking global distribution deals. ZMorph has also been releasing some preliminary hints of what this new machine can actually do with case studies showing off projects like classy new Star Wars-themed 3D printed sample packs and molds for making silver jewelry.
Users can still look forward to experimenting with over 30 materials from the most traditional to the more alternative like ceramics or food, as well as exploring all that can be fabricated with the desktop machine’s exchangeable toolheads, which allow for laser cutting, engraving, CNC milling, and more. But along with that now comes updated and improved metal construction, an intuitive interface, a closed loop system, and more. And according to ZMorph—continuing to spread the fever of their company’s most successful product launch ever—this is all being shared around the world, with a seven-day lead time for retailers and industry buyers.
Reporting that large orders have already exceeded their expectations for sales of the ZMorph 2.0 SX Multitool 3D Printer, the company has signed distribution deals with numerous distribution partners and resellers, to include:
- Machines-3D (France)
- Image Transforms (Singapore)
- The 3D Printer (Australia)
- The3DBee (Middle East)
- 3D Ninja (Netherlands)
With nearly 70 partners offering the new printer in over 50 countries, ZMorph states they are continuing to provide constant shipments, offering the desktop multitool machine as ‘off-the-shelf’ with their one-week lead time. They confirm that DesignBox3D store will continue to offer new ZMorph products throughout the US. Also, they have just announced another distribution deal with SIU System, offering ZMorph products to the Russian market, as demand grows there.
Working to set a new standard in digital fabrication, ZMorph has become a trendsetter in combining 3D printing with more traditional subtractive process. They state that that with this latest release, they are offering their most advanced yet accessible product yet. The improved construction offers:
- User friendly color LED touchscreen
- Precisely machined and cut metal parts
- Lift-off front and rear covers
- Filament guide system
- Filament spool holders
“We gave the 2.0 SX a color LCD touchscreen and a completely new interface to make desktop fabrication even more accessible,” states ZMorph on their website. “Basically, using a 3D printer feels now like using a smartphone or a tablet. Also, the new touchscreen allows you to control the printer without the need to connect a PC.”
The new encoder-based closed loop system offers further quality for making objects, whether using the additive or subtractive process.
“The system works like a guard—it monitors the printer and maintains precision at all times, especially when printing at high speeds, or CNC milling with high torque. It’s reliability reimagined.”
The interchangeable toolheads are also being enhanced with interchangeable worktables featuring:
- Magnetic latches
- Backward compatibility for existing extruders,
- Upgrade paths for suitable modules
- Forward compatibility (due to a new expansion slot on the X-carriage)
The 2.0 SX begins at $2690 USD, and offers a great deal for users with multi-tool needs as they only need one machine to perform so many different tasks, saving money and space at the desktop.
