Plenty of 3D manufacturing companies are offering additions to their lineups this year, along with new materials and other services, but there are a rare few that already have such a great product behind them, you really do find yourself excited at the prospect of a new release. This would definitely be the case with Zortrax, the Poland-headquartered manufacturer of 3D printing hardware, software and materials. I had the immense pleasure of reviewing their M200 last year, and it was with great regret that my whole family watched it leave after several weeks of seamless, quality printing, and a beautiful machine sitting with great welcome in our family room. Despite a couple episodes involving user error, the 3D printer was turnkey and up and running within minutes, producing detailed, high-quality prints.
I’m just one of many who has enjoyed the M200, so it’s likely that users around the world right now are also very curious to find out more about the latest release from Zortrax with the aptly named M300. Obviously, this new machine has a lot to live up to, thanks to the popularity of its award-winning predecessor. Boasting a larger printing area and a 300-by-300-by-300-millimeter workspace, Zortrax feels comfortable the M300 will stand apart from the growing inventory of printers we see in the 3D printing marketplace today.
Professionals using 3D printing as a tool for everything from rapid prototyping to low-batch production will be able to print larger objects now without having to go to the trouble of splitting parts into multiple prints. The M300 also features a completely redesigned system for materials that users will find user-friendly as they go on to create large, durable, high-quality objects.
Just launched this week, the Zortrax M300 is being released on a global basis, with the manufacturer’s team stating that users will find all of the best features of the M200 in a new machine that will transport their 3D printing to an even higher level.
“We have already established Zortrax as an industry leader with our award-winning M200, and now we are pushing the boundaries even further by introducing the bigger and better M300,” said Rafal Tomasiak, CEO of Zortrax. “The new M300 offers our clients greater flexibility and opens new doors of possibility. The printer also comes with a redesigned material supply system that makes the entire printing process even more user friendly.”
Surely the question on the minds of many is why the company felt compelled to improve on the highly popular M200. According to Zortrax in a recent press release, the company and their R&D team are always working continuously to expand their product range as well as meeting the demands of their users globally, within a 3D printing market that is continually changing.
“Zortrax listens carefully to the needs of its clients and creates solutions that perfectly fit their diverse business needs maintaining rigorous quality and durability standards set by the company,” said their press release.
The company sees this as a way for their users to save further time and money thanks to the speed and cost-effectiveness of the machine, fitting their needs even better, and ‘helping pave the way for improvement and innovation.’
Over 160 resellers will be offering the Zortrax M300 in over 50 countries, with pricing information available here, as it will vary depending on currency rates.
Zortrax, as a leader in 3D printing solutions, has already created a comprehensive and integrated 3D printing environment, which they continue to expand with products such as the M300. Users can look forward to creating prototypes and models that are fully functional, whether being created from the home workshop, or a business ranging from small to large.
Zortrax and its solutions have been recently recognized with a World’s Top 10 3D Printer Award for the Zortrax M200 in the Make: Ultimate Guide to 3D Printing 2015; 3D Hubs Best Plug & Play Device of 2015, 2016; and 3D Hubs Highest Rated Desktop Device of 2015.
