What should you consider if you want to buy our 3D printer?

Have you decided to buy a Zortrax 3D printer? Congratulations! You’ve made a great decision! Now it’s time to decide which device is right for you. In the second half of 2016, we introduced the Zortrax M300 3D printer which is the big brother of the well-tested and widely used M200 3D printer.

Let’s briefly consider who would benefit from using the Zortrax M200 3D printer and who would be better off buying the Zortrax M300.

Size does matter: Zortrax M200 vs Zortrax M300

The main difference between the Zortrax M200 and Zortrax M300 3D printers is their size. Their external dimensions translate into the build volume i.e. the area in which we can print our 3D projects. In case of the Zortrax M200, the workspace is 200x200x180 mm, while the Zortrax M300 has a working area of 300x300x300 mm.

This is sufficient to 3D print an entire motorbike helmet as one 3D print. Zortrax M300 offers new opportunities to industrial designers. This state-of-the-art 3D printer provides new possibilities in the medical sector, industrial design, engineering, and in many other industries. It is also possible to 3D print larger objects with the use of Zortrax M200, but one has to connect parts.

However, the Zortrax M200’s smaller size makes it possible to install the 3D printer in any room. Bearing in mind its reasonable price, the Zortrax M200 is an ideal 3D printer for people who want to start their adventure with this technology.

The Zortrax M300 is a large-scale Zortrax M200

Apart from build volume, the parameters of both 3D printers do not differ significantly. Both Zortrax M200 and Zortrax M300 guarantee a high dimensional accuracy and precise repeatability. The Zortrax M200 has a print resolution of 90-400 microns, while the M300 – 140-300 microns. Both devices have a high positioning accuracy of 1.5 microns.

Both 3D printers use the same LPD 3D printing technology and some of the same materials: Z-HIPS, Z-GLASS, Z-PETG, Z-ESD, Z-PLA Pro, Z-ASA Pro. In addition, the M200 allows you to use the following materials: Z-PCABS, Z-ULTRAT, Z-ABS.

Larger 3D printer material spools are offered for the M300.

 

With Zortrax 3D printers, you don’t have to think about assembly or advanced construction. Additionally, the key to Z-SUITE, the dedicated software operating with both Windows and macOS systems, is a part of a set. The 3D printers communicate with the computer via an SD card which can also be found in the box. Reliability and modern design are characteristic to both 3D printers, so that you can boast that your R&D center or small office has a great looking 3D printer.

No matter which – it’s important that you have a Zortrax

Reliability, dimensional accuracy, precise repeatability, ease of use and high potential – both Zortrax 3D printers combine all these features. The ultimate decision which printer to choose: the Zortrax M200 or M300, depends on your needs. Both 3D printers are attractively priced in their respective categories.

#1 The Zortrax M200 is a good choice not only for professionals, but also for beginners planning to make smaller scale print-outs and create smaller objects.

#2 The Zortrax M300 is the answer to the needs of demanding professionals who require a large working area, and at the same time a 3D printer which is easy to use like M200 and ready to use the moment it’s taken out of the box.

The choice between the Zortrax M200 vs Zortrax M300 3D printers should be based on the sector’s specific features, and the users’ individual needs. If one wants to 3D print larger objects – the Zortrax M300 is a great choice. Thanks to the two sizes of Zortrax 3D printers on offer, you can make the best decision as to which solution is suitable for your work.
