Zortrax M200 – Award Winning 3D Printer
The Zortrax M200 has been one of those machines that strives to be as plug & play as reasonably practical. This was done by restricting filaments to those supplied by Zotrax. Nonetheless this has proven to make the M200 one of the better machines on the market for years. As they are finally able to take 3d party filaments we are glad to include them in our range at last!

Plug & create
No complicated calibration of the printer or software necessary. Just turn the printer on, upload the model and start printing.
Properly selected heating and cooling points in the extruder solve the common problem of inability to release material by the extruder. It can be caused by a change in the physical properties of material associated with temperature.
Use of a two-part platform allows for its easy removal after the printing process is finished. Thanks to this feature, the model can be easily removed without causing any calibration issues. Perforations on the platform allow to print using materials based on ABS which have a tendency to warp. They prevent the model from peeling off during printing process. Additionally, an extra layer of raft is used as a special base for the object. This is very important for printing large models. The platform is heated to the correct temperature for each type of filament. Wide range of temperatures (from 20° C to 110° C) allow to print using many kinds of materials.
The printer is fitted with an innovative calibration system which makes sure that the platform is leveled correctly every time. There are calibrating points located on the platform itself which calculate its exact position. The system is able to determine on which level the calibrating points should be located. In the case of a slight tilt the extruder is able to adapt to the position of the platform while it’s putting on the first layers of the model.
X and Y axis system
A system of dual X and Y axises is used to lead the extruder with high precision. Stability and quality of printing is greatly improved through the use of 8 smooth rods.
Single Extruder Support
Ease of use thanks to Single Extruder Support system (SES) which allows to print support structure for complex models without the need of dual extruder and additional material. Support structure is easy to remove and efficient. The system is optimized to use only the exact amount of material needed to support the model.
