Add the United States to ZMorph’s rapidly growing expansion list. Today, while participating in the Inside 3D Printing Show in Santa Clara, CA, ZMorph announced distribution of their 3D printers and Voxelizer software in the US. ZMorph is also adding two new toolhead options: a laser toolhead, and a 5-axis universal end-effector toolhead.
Poland-based ZMorph began shipping their 3D printers and software to European countries at the end of last year and just last month 3DPrint.com reported on their plans to expand also to Finland, France, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland, and Turkey.
“Within a very short period of time, 3D printing has become really popular and has already started to influence many industries helping people to broaden their horizons and launch new business around the world, starting from having an impact on architecture, manufacturing or production, as well as on fashion, medicine or even food production. It is almost unbelievable how quickly the opportunities of 3D printing have become limitless,” says Przemek Jaworski, CEO and founder of ZMorph.
“ZMorph’s next step for a quite rapid business expansion was almost inevitable. We have thought about launching our presence in the United States for more than six months and almost could not wait to start it to see even bigger interest and participation of creative and innovative Americans in our community of personal fabrication.”
With the interchangeable toolhead system, users are already able to 3D print with all types of plastics available, and also ceramics, rubber, nylon, chocolate and even cake with icing. These toolheads add even further versatility to the ZMorph Personal Fabricater 2.0.
“Multi-functionality is ZMorph’s main advantage” says Jaworski. “It allows your 3D printer to be something really special, it becomes your personal fabricator, a mini factory that can work in almost every workshop, office or home. With the latest advances of toolheads the 3D printer has changed from a useful device into a truly multi-functional machine, able to work with many materials and techniques, additive and subtractive.”
Jaworski points out that because of the small-power (2W) laser onboard, the Zmorph 3D printer can cut and engrave a few of the following and many more:
The five-axis toolhead allows the opportunity to perform five-axis milling, structured light scanning, and even 5D printing. According to Jaworski, “This is all possible thanks to working with special add-ons, or end-effectors, that are mounted on the toolhead, and driven by special plugins installed in the dedicated software package.”
ZMorph also features Voxelizer, their in-house developed software package. Based on voxels, which are three-dimensional pixels, their software aids the users in designing their models, and provides excellent print quality. Users see their models as 3D-pixels rather than triangular meshes generally seen in other programs. Voxelizer assists in assuring quality of printing and also helps the user in designing the model properly.
