Zortrax, 3D printer manufacturer, has announced that you can now metal 3D print on M300 Dual 3D printers right on your desktop. This industrial-grade large workspace machine is yet another product that gains this feature, joining the industrial Endureal. It operates in both single- and dual-extrusion modes.

Zortrax M300 Dual can be used with an incredibly wide range of materials, from straightforward, affordable filaments and flexible materials to engineering icons like Nylon and highly specialised, carbon- and glass-reinforced polymers for cutting-edge technical applications.

With the addition of two kits, Zortrax Full Metal Package 316L and Zortrax Full Metal Package 17-4 PH, this wide range has been further expanded. Both kits include every component needed for desktop metal 3D printing, including the metal-polymer filaments BASF Ultrafuse® 316L and BASF Ultrafuse® 17-4 from BASF Forward AM.

The Zortrax M300 Dual is a flexible desktop 3D printer that can print with a wide range of materials, from flexible filaments and standard ABS or PLA-based materials to advanced composites reinforced with glass or carbon fibre, such as BASF Ultrafuse® PPGF 30 or BASF Ultrafuse® PAHT CF15, and engineering standards like Nylon or Nylon-based materials.

Market-leading brands like BASF Forward AM, Nanovia, KIMYA, or 3DxTech are among the filaments made available in Z-SUITE software’s printing profiles for the M300 Dual. As a result, the Zortrax M300 Dual 3D printer is able to handle the vast majority of applications across the majority of industries.

“Zortrax M300 Dual is a truly universal machine, which combines a large workspace, single- and dual-extrusion modes, intuitive interface, and a very wide range of ready-to-use, calibrated material profiles. We’re now adding an option of metal 3D printing to this desktop printer with two comprehensive sets: Zortrax Full Metal Package 316L and Zortrax Full Metal Package 17-4 PH, encompassing everything that’s necessary to start metal 3D printing and to ensure fully functional metal parts, which exhibit the properties of steel.”

Aside from a premium metal-polymer filament, both the Zortrax Full Metal Package 316L and Zortrax Full Metal Package 17-4 PH come with all the other elements required for successful metal 3D printing.

Dedicated support material BASF Ultrafuse® Support Layer, Magigoo® Pro Metal adhesive to ensure reliable adhesion during printing and the simple removal of the printed part, an additional hotend module for Zortrax M300 Dual, an adapter with a PTFE tube, and a coupon for expert post-processing in Elnik company (BASF’s reputable part manufacturer) are all included in each package.

With the release of BETA version 3.2.0, the Z-SUITE slicer has undergone a number of improvements in addition to the addition of the new metal printing option for the M300 Dual. With the most recent update, our software is even better suited to the requirements of 3D printer users and the characteristics of the two-stage post-processing that converts “green” parts into steel. The new gyroid infill, the innovative way that support structures are printed using BASF Ultrafuse® Support Layer, and the fact that the update adds a tonne of new materials and performance enhancements for all Zortrax 3D printers are the most significant features in this area.

Ewa Piórkowska, R&D Software Project Manager at Zortrax commented, “The latest version of Z-SUITE BETA features a set of improvements in printing with metallic powder filaments. A new gyroid infill enables printing metal models with 60% to 90% infill. Another change enhances the way in which support structures are printed with BASF Ultrafuse® Support Layer. Here, supports are divided into smaller blocks along all axes and narrowed down towards the bottom. All this makes supports placed in the areas that are difficult to reach easier to remove and reduces their footprint on the model.”
