Zortrax Expands Z-SUITE to Support External Materials

Stay up to date with everything that is happening in the wonderful world of AM via our LinkedIn community.

Zortrax presents the newest version of the original Z-SUITE software. From now on, Z-SUITE is supporting external printing material profiles. This feature will give users of Zortrax M200 and Zortrax M300 3D printers freedom in experimenting with materials outside of the Zortrax Ecosystem.

Thus far, users of Zortrax M200 and Zortrax M300 3D printers were limited to the original printing materials provided by the company. An integrated 3D printing environment consisting of high-end solutions (3D printers, software and printing materials) is one of the factors guaranteeing hardware reliability and the highest quality and repeatability of models. This environment is enough for most of the users, as it provides for the most common 3D printing applications. Nevertheless, creative communities have been asking for the option to experiment with materials outside of the Zortrax range.

Intuitive Software

Z-SUITE allows users to easily and intuitively change the 3D printing settings. Infill level, model splicing, size control and printing speed can all be modified using the software. Furthermore, Z-SUITE has separate settings related to the selected printing material. This is very important, because 3D printer uses provided information to adjust the operating temperature correlating it with the material properties to ensure the top printing quality.

“We have received signals from users who wanted to experiment with the external printing materials not included in our current material range. The newest software update is a response to those signals. Please keep in mind, only way to ensure the top quality and hardware reliability of our solutions is by using Zortrax materials”, says Zortrax CEO, Rafał Tomasiak.
