ZMorph 3D printed drum setMichał Szydłowski is a graduate student at the Wrocław University of Technology acoustics program, and he’s also a Research and Development Engineer for Toolheads at ZMorph.

Szydłowski also has lots of experience 3D modeling and prototyping, and when he faced having to come up with a thesis project, his passion for music, 3D printing, and a tight deadline came together to inspire him to create something impressive. So Szydłowski decided he’d combine his passions and knowledge to build a unique, homemade digital drum set.  We’ve seen 3D printed drums before, but nothing like the one this Polish grad student would design.

ZMorph makes a multi-tool machine that features 3D printing capabilities. The ZMorph 2.0 S Personal Fabricator takes advantage of removable and interchangeable toolheads to allow users to print in a range of materials as well. Szydłowski designed his kit in Autodesk, sliced the files with ZMorph Voxelizer software, and then printed out all the parts with his ZMorph personal fabricator.

The drum kit is almost entirely 3D printed, and it’s fully functional.

According to Szydłowski, using Voxelizer software allowed him to drag and drop his files for printing and the slicing engine – which is based on completely new technology – can drive all the available ZMorph accessories.

ZMorph 3D printers can also, via their swappable tool heads, print with all types of plastics, ceramics, rubber, nylon, and even chocolate, and a 3D milling capability is controlled via the company’s Voxelizer dedicated software as well.

The ZMorph 2.0 S Personal Fabricator features a build envelope of 250 x 235 x 165 mm and it’s compatible with 1.75 and 3 mm filaments. There are also a range of other toolheads available which allow it to laser cut and, now, to 3D scan objects up to 30 x 30 cm.

The ZMorph 2.0 S Personal Fabricator is priced at approximately $1,800, and the 3D Scanner toolhead can be pre-ordered through the ZMorph website.
