Polish 3D printer company Zortrax has just given us a first look at a slew of new products, including the Zortrax Inventure 3D printer and DSS station, Z-PLA Pro and Z-ASA Pro 3D printing materials, and version 2.0 of its Z-SUITE software. With a launch described as “the biggest event in the company’s history,” the new products were recently announced at the Zortrax Experience Conference in Olsztyn, Poland.

The event, which took place on June 6 and 7, brought together over 100 of Zortrax’s business partners and resellers from all over the world. “We used Zortrax Experience to present new products for all elements of our ecosystem,” commented Rafał Tomasiak, CEO of Zortrax. “We are very glad to have been able to present everything live, right here in Olsztyn, where it all began.”

While our excitement for Zortrax is high, and we could go on about the conference itself, we’re much more eager to take a look at the company’s new products.

First off, and most excitingly, let’s look at the new 3D printer: the Zortrax Inventure. The new 3D printer, which will be officially released on June 20, 2017, boasts a number of notable features, including dual extruders (for printing dissolvable supports), a closed print chamber, and a HEPA filter. The 3D printer also comes with a DSS station, which can be used for dissolving support materials once a print is complete.

With a build volume of 140 x 140 x 140 mm, the Zortrax Inventure is more compact than its predecessors, the M200 and M300, which have respective build volumes of 200 x 200 x 180 mm and 300 x 300 x 300 mm. Still, Zortrax says its new 3D printer—which has been in development for years—is well suited for professional applications in the fields of architecture, automotive, engineering, medicine, and more, because of its “exceptional printing precision.”

Along with the 3D printer, Zortrax is releasing a number of new 3D printing materials, including Z-PLA Pro and Z-ASA Pro. As you can guess by their names, both filaments are being geared towards the professional markets.

Z-PLA, compatible with the company’s M200 and M300 3D printers, is reportedly ideal for 3D printing such things as architectural models, because it offers a stylish matte finish and fine detail. Other possible applications for the filament include industrial design or modeling projects.

Z-ASA Pro, for its part, offers good resistance to weather, including UV rays, and has low risk of shrinkage when printed. This means it can offer ABS-level resistance and can be used to print bigger models. The Polish 3D printing company will also be releasing new materials for its Zortrax Inventure 3D printer, including Z-PLA, Z-PETG, and Z-SUPPORT filaments.

Finally, with the release of the Z-SUITE 2.0 beta version on July 18, Zortrax customers will be able to test out a number of updates and improvements to the 3D printing software. Some of the bigger updates include the ability to work in multiple tabs, editable supports, and grid repairs to automatically repair errors that appear in the model. For ease of use, the software also features a more intuitive interface.

“Until the official release of the full version of Z-SUITE 2.0, users can use Z-SUITE version 1.11, which will introduce support for the Zortrax Inventure 3D printer and profiles of the new materials (Z-ASA Pro and Z-PLA Pro),” the company says.

Overall, the new products signal some exciting growth for the Polish 3D printing company.
