Zortrax – a Polish manufacturer of 3D printers and filaments announced that it has introduced a new 3D Printer – the M200 Plus. The new product is an improvement to the company’s flagship – M200 3D printer, a desktop 3D printer valued by thousands of users. The launch of M200 Plus with improved functionalities only adds to the company’s existing list of state-of-the-art 3D printers.
The Zortrax’s M200 Plus is a reliable 3D printer based on the award-winning Zortrax M200. The M200 Plus comes with new features such as WiFi and Ethernet connectivity that offer users an opportunity to remotely control multiple devices – a feature that is beneficial when operating in large, automated 3D printing farms.
The M200 Plus also comes with additional improved features such as new, redesigned extruder, a touchscreen with an intuitive interface, and most importantly support for new specialised materials such as the Z-SEMIFLEX – an elastic material which combines the features of rubber and plastic, and is ideal for printing elastic elements that can range from seals or rubber elements used in automotive industry to realistic models of blood vessels and arteries to plan treatment of patients.

Speaking about how the idea of introducing the M200 Plus was born, Karolina Bołądź, Chief Product Officer at Zortrax SA, said in an official statement released by the company, “Since the Zortrax M200 premiere, we have been listening to the opinions of our users. 3D printing technology is constantly developing. There are new types of materials, and the need to automate the production process became very important so 3D printers increasingly began to become an inseparable element of production plants or design offices”.
“Our goal was to adapt the world’s best desktop 3D printer to the new reality. In addition, Zortrax M200 Plus is a perfect reflection of the IoT concept”, Bołądź added.
Explaining how the new M200 Plus can help better coordinate the production performed on several or dozen 3D printers, Marcin Olchanowski, Chief Technology Officer at Zortrax SA said, “Zortrax M200 Plus is a 3D printer based on LPD technology, which was created for professional and corporate clients. It is the reason why we introduced the possibility of combining 3D printers into farms and manage them through the wireless connectivity. Thanks to it, one trained employee can coordinate the production performed on several or dozen machines. This is an innovative solution expected by today’s industry and specialists around the world.”
The M200 Plus also comes with some additional functionalities for better performance. These include wireless file transfer, a quad core processor that guarantees high data processing speed, and a camera which allows users to monitor the printout status in the company’s Z-SUITE software.
