There is little doubt that the future of manufacturing (and perhaps robotics, too) will be centered in one’s own home, whether it be additive, subtractive, or a combination of both . One company trying to bring this future to reality sooner, rather than later, is Poland-based Zmorph.
The company, which is known for its multi-tooled machines, with the primary selling point being its 3D printing capabilities, announced today the brand new ZMorph 2.0 S Personal Fabricator. This latest machine is completely redesigned with a full metal frame, a new Z-axis with enhanced accuracy down to as intricate as 0.001mm, and much faster print speeds. Additionally the Zmorph has updated its firmware to what it claims to be a much more intuitive and efficient user interface.
“It’s not just a 3D printer, it’s a great ultimate object making machine offering personal fabrication for creative people to the highest standard, a kind of a tool to trigger the next printing revolution,” says Przemek Jaworski, ZMorph’s CEO & Founder. “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 is changed from a useful device into a truly multi-functional machine, able to work with many materials and techniques, additive and subtractive.”
- Printer Weight: 25 kg
- Printer Size: 530 x 555 x 480 mm
- Build Envelope: 250 x 235 x 165 mm
- Recommended Print Speed: 60 – 150mm/s
- Printer Colors Available: Black, red, blue, green white and yellow

As for the compatible toolheads for this ‘personal fabricator’, you will be amazed. The Zmorph 2.0 S is able to 3D print, mill, laser cut and more. The following lists just some of the interchangeable toolheads available for this machine:
- Single Head Extruder 1.75 or 3mm
- Dual Head Extruder
- Chocolate and Cake Extruder
- Milling and Engraving Toolhead
- Ceramics Extruder
- Laser Cutter
- 5-axis Toolhead
Priced at 1,499 euros (Approximately $1,871) this machine will not break the budget either. There is no doubt that personal fabrication will be how a large portion of the manufacturing is done on this planet over the next several decades. Zmorph’s machine is certainly a start.
