The ZMorph is a whirlwind of a multi-tasking 3D printer. It offers an irresistible range of potential for projects–so much so that it’s amazing anyone is able to step away from this piece of equipment at all–most especially artists and those who have that deep passion for creating. If you are one, you know what we mean.
We’ve enjoyed following ZMorph for quite some time now, watching this dynamic company expand globally–and quickly–as makers around the world discover their multi-functional machine and all of its benefits, which demonstrate all of the reasons 3D printing is so beneficial–and so transformative. The ZMorph is a 3D printer that offers infinite choices, and while it is an impressive piece of equipment, the users who have purchased them and put them to work in expressing their own passions are the true story–or shall we say Ztory?
Boasting a stylish design, which is available in multiple colors, the ZMorph 3D printer more importantly has a sturdy frame made of aluminum and a heated bed that allows designers to keep all of their most important models from warping.
The dynamic ZMorph 3D printer allows the user to launch a veritable factory straight from the desktop, enabling entrepreneurs of all ages to branch out in commerce where previously they did not have the option, with the independence to skip over the middleman in manufacturing altogether. And that’s where it’s at for this new world of innovators who value their time–and their own products.
We’ve reported on this company countless times as they have opened new 3D printing retail stores around the world, landed new investors, and added new features for their interchangeable toolheads, including an integrated 3D scanner.
Today, they have a dedicated following, and a thriving marketplace of their own as they offer one of the leading ‘personal fabrication’ devices and allow for not only additive manufacturing, but also subtractive and formative fabrication techniques–all from one piece of equipment. Their mission to supply their designers and engineers with accessibility to 3D printing, and to facilitate being able to design, create, and innovate is definitely being achieved–and the following Ztories are shining examples.
You can also check out more of these stories here, but even more importantly, ZMorph invites you to share yours in the ‘Share your Ztory with ZMorph’ competition. You can win a dedicated toolhead, $100 to spend in the ZMorph shop, and also experience great exposure for your own 3D printed product.
So what is all the fuss about? It’s regarding a machine that offers so much potential that a wide range of innovations are emerging almost faster than we can report on them all. The ZMorph 3D printer lets users prototype using multiple materials and a variety of functions–all from one device–with the company’s own Voxel software in control.
The ZMorph 3D printer allows for printing in:
The versatile machine also offers the ability to perform:
- 3D scanning
- CNC milling
- Laser cutting
As is so often the case in the 3D printing community, many of ZMorph’s users inspire others with their creations, especially in terms of making eco-friendly designs that involve recycling and upcycling.
Matt Olczyk is a talented designer who specializes in digital manufacturing using 3D printing, parametrics, and CNC fabrication. He took a piece of leather from an old purse and polished it up. Using the laser engraver and cutter from his ZMorph, Olczyk was able to make an incredibly sophisticated looking watchband with an art-deco motif.
Motivated to do more, and still entrenched in the beauty of art-deco because of his historical home, Olczyk then went on to design a 3D printed doorplate that is not only stunning but incredibly ornate, imbued with a royal gilt look due to his impressive paint job.
If you want inspiration for working with your 3D printer–and especially the ZMorph–Ztories are the place to look. The 3D printer manufacturer is continually and duly impressed by stories that come through featuring many new rising designers, including Klaudia Filipiak, who was able to use her ZMorph for 3D printing in rubber, which was, yes, used in making apparel.
We’ve also reported recently–and extensively–on Michał Szydłowski and his 3D printed drum set–one of ZMorph’s most famous stories to date–and one heard around the world. In a perfect demonstration of how doing what you love really comes through when you highlight it in an exciting project, Szydłowski created a 3D printed set of drums that blew us all away.
For his thesis, the uber creative Polish grad student spent only 16 hours making this incredible drum set that used 1kg of PLA to 3D print the several drum triggers and one cymbal. Also on an interesting note– Szydłowski is a research and development engineer for toolheads at ZMorph. Lucky them–and lucky are those who have the great privilege to own a ZMorph 3D printer.
Keep the Ztories–and the innovations–coming.
