Zortrax introduces a new speed mode feature that is free and will allow for up to three times faster printing on Zortrax desktop 3D printers! It includes the latest firmware for the Zortrax M300 Dual and M Series Plus 3D printers.
It does not necessitate any hardware changes on the part of the users. The installation procedure is straightforward and consists of only a few simple steps. The speed mode is especially recommended for businesses where lead times are critical, as it ensures greater design flexibility, enhanced manufacturing capabilities, and shortened production times.
Zortrax Introduces New Speed Mode
In response to our users’ requests, we’re accelerating 3D printing with Zortrax machines by releasing a new, completely free firmware that includes the new speed mode feature. We all know how important printing speed is in additive manufacturing technologies, especially for businesses that rely heavily on rapid prototyping. Companies that are particularly concerned with reducing lead times will now benefit from the speed mode, which will allow orders to be delivered to their target customers more quickly. Individual users will also be able to complete projects on Zortrax 3D printers at a previously unheard-of rate.
“The strength of our new speed mode lies primarily in the fact that it is a completely free solution, which does not need any additional hardware modifications. It is especially beneficial for all those businesses and individual users that care about short lead times most and 3D print numerous parts, either on their own, or through Zortrax 3D printing services. The installation process is simple and convenient so that all our desktop 3D printers’ users can upgrade their machines easily.”– Michał Siemaszko, Head of Research and Development Department, Zortrax
How to start using the speed mode?
To get the new feature, users must go to the Zortrax support centre website and download the installation file to a USB drive. Then, they should insert the drive into the slot on their Zortrax 3D printer and follow the instructions on the screen. After installing the firmware, the speed mode parameters can be found in the ‘Print speed adjustments’ section (Settings -> Working options -> Print speed Adjustments). Print speed, acceleration, and hotend temperature offset are the three most important parameters. Acceleration controls how quickly the extruder accelerates after changing printing direction. Printing in high-speed mode may necessitate increasing the hotend temperature, which can also be adjusted.
Because the print speed can be adjusted at any time during the printing process, users gain more design flexibility in both simple and complex designs with the new speed mode. This means that some parts of the model can be 3D printed at a standard speed while maintaining high precision, while other components can be finished much faster. Faster printing also means increased production capacity and, as a result, market competitiveness due to shorter order delivery times.
According to Mariusz Babula, CEO at Zortrax, “We’re glad to present the speed mode to our whole 3D printing community. The new feature introduced for Zortrax M200 Plus, M300 Plus and M300 Dual translates into tangible benefits for multiple branches of industry. Being able to print up to 3 times faster, businesses gain great design flexibility, manufacturers can produce significantly more units during the same time, and mass production is enhanced. We truly recommend this solution in every manufacturing process, where lead time is of key importance.”
