Polish 3D printer producer Zortrax has introduced the launch of the M300 Twin an FDM 3D printer primarily based on the corporate’s proprietary Layer Plastic Deposition Plus (LPD Plus) expertise. Utilizing a dual-extrusion system, the LPD Plus expertise within the new system permits customers to 3D print fashions with water-soluble help constructions as properly. Zortrax has additionally targeted on introducing numerous different options to the machine concentrating on specialists looking for knowledgeable however user-friendly 3D printer.
Rafał Tomasiak, CEO of Zortrax, explains “The twin-extrusion system and huge workspace enable industrial-standard detailed and complex printing, whereas sustaining the traits of a desktop printer.”
“Our aim is to switch the chances provided by an industrial printing to smaller, extra user-friendly units. The brand new M300 Twin is one other step on this course.”

Simultaneous printing for water-soluble helps
The LPD Plus system within the M300 Twin makes use of a built-in extruder with a double hot-end and two seperate nozzles, permitting customers to work with two completely different supplies, together with a variety of third-party filaments.
The advantages of the water-soluble help system permits for easily-removed help constructions, and implies that the M300 Twin can 3D print intricate inner geometries that can’t be completed on single-material machines. Soluble helps additionally allow components to be stacked upon each other, permitting the complete construct quantity of the 3D printer, measuring 265 x 265 x 300 mm, for use in a single print cycle.
Different key options of the system embrace a blackout response system, for persevering with printing within the occasion of energy outage, and one thing the corporate calls “superior filament management”, which goals to scale back print losses. With superior filament management notifications are despatched to the consumer within the occasion of an error, just like the filament depleting, or the nozzle changing into clogged, after which the system will then routinely pause the progress of its 3D print, in order that the fault will be rectified.

Constructing upon earlier success
The M300 Twin 3D printer from Zortrax expands upon its M300 vary, most notably upgrading it with the dual-extrusion LDP Plus system. Zortrax’s M300 3D printer was initially launched as a bigger counterpart to its M200 providing, which has been established as a agency favorite of the maker neighborhood through the years. In a similar way to the upgraded M300 Twin, Zortrax determined to improve the M200 with the M200 Plus final yr in 2018.
Zortrax’s M200 system has been nominated for the Desktop FFF 3D printer of the yr class within the 2019 3D Printing Trade Awards, having gained the class in earlier years as properly. The Zortrax Inkspire 3D printer, which makes use of vat polymerization expertise, has additionally been nominated as a Wildcard entry for the Desktop Non-FFF 3D Printer of the Yr in our annual awards present.
