Zortrax M200 Plus is a desktop semi-professional 3D printer made in Poland. It ships pre-built and it is really easy to install and calibrate. Its sturdy design and high-quality components make it precise, reliable, and durable. It features a stable, open print chamber, a direct drive extruder, and a perforated, heated platform. The machine can print with a range of materials, including Polylactide, ABS, Polycarbonates, and Nylon.
The effective hotbed makes it ideal for printing with ABS-type materials. No wonder that All3DP called Zortrax M200 the best 2017 3D printer workhorse geared towards ABS. Thanks to its quality hardware, efficient extrusion system and optimized software architecture, the printer is capable of delivering high print quality. It is also equipped with a wireless connection (Wi-Fi), an SD card reader and a convenient sleep mode. Find out more about the M200 Plus in our review.
For example, BOSCH has installed some Zortrax printers in its Mondeville Plant. It has started using the Zortrax technologies to speed up the prototyping process and save costs. Indeed, the company is now able to 3D print components spending less than € 1 instead of € 450 or more. By implementing the 3D printing technology in its workflow, the company saved over € 80,000.

The Zortrax M200 Plus is an FDM 3D printer that can print layers at 90 microns. This way you can produce parts with smooth exterior surfaces. Thanks to its robust structure and industrial-grade hardware, it delivers above-the-average, consistent printing results.
For example, the external body of this camera lens has been produced using a Zortrax M200 Plus. Notice how smooth and defined its surface is.
The Zortrax M200 Plus has a 0.4 mm nozzle, giving you the best balance between speed and detail. Printed in a reasonable time, this building shows high definition and accuracy, even in its tiny details.
The print head runs on rods with linear bearings, making the design more simple, lightweight and effective, all characteristics that are desirable in a 3D printer.
Zortrax M200 Plus prints with ABS, HIPS, Z-PLA, Z-SEMIFLEX and other dedicated materials. Indeed, the company provides a range of special materials engineered to achieve the best print quality. Z-PLA is a biodegradable material that provides high-quality details and smooth surfaces. It can handle complex structures with ease, being perfect for architectural models. Z-SEMIFLEX is a semi-elastic filament, hence the name. It resists to greases and high temperatures. You can also print performance support using the Z-SUPPORT Premium, a soluble filament with a fast dissolution rate and high-temperature resistance. Zortrax’s material library gives you plenty of material choices.
The extruder comes with a fan for printing with PLA-type materials. By cooling the model down, it reduces warping, stringing and, generally, makes for higher quality prints.
The Zortrax M200 Plus has a perforated, heated print bed, which makes it suitable for printing with ABS-type materials. Its performance equipment makes it one of the best 3D printers for working with ABS.
For example, this powerful Charizard has been printed with ABS. As you can see, the printing results are pretty good and detailed.

To ensure high reproducibility, we recommend installing an enclosed print chamber. This way the print quality would not be affected by temperature fluctuations as a result of drafts and other factors.
Even if Zortrax offers a wide library of proprietary filaments optimized for its devices, the Zortrax M200 Plus also prints with standard 1.75 mm filament, providing you with a wide choice of third-party materials.
The build area of 7.9 x 7.9 x 7.1 inches (200 x 200 x 180 mm) lets you print just about anything, even some cool cosplay weapons.
For example, a 3D printing lab created this Viking Axe for one of its customers.

The printer is controlled via a built-in LCD interface. Its user-friendly touchscreen lets you easily navigate the menu and select available options by touching the on-screen, large icons. Also, you can always have a look at your printing models thanks to the real-time preview displayed. The interface supports automatic updates over Wi-Fi.
3D models can be printed from the computer via an SD card or USB flash drives. You can also start your prints and monitor them wirelessly over Wi-Fi.
The printer Z-SUITE 2 slicing software is a performance program in-house developed by Zortrax. Tailored to the Zortrax 3D printers, it is also compatible with third-party printing devices. Z-SUITE 2 provides a set of thoughtful functionalities for easy printing management. It automatically converts digital projects into ready-to-print 3D models. It adds auto-generated, easily editable, supports where needed. It constantly checks the model to detect possible mesh or thin wall issues. The auto-repair function directly fixes the issues when possible. It offers a variety of infill patterns for greate durability and low material use. Splitting the model and replicating the code will be a breeze. The software is compatible with all major 3D modeling programs. It works with 3D models in .stl, .obj, .dxf, .3mf formats, and is available for Mac OS X and Windows. You might use it on your Linux OS by installing a virtual machine.
