Why buy the ZYYX+ 3D Printer?
> It is Reliable
The build plate is probed before every print and the print plane is adjusted during the print in order to keep your models safely on the plate.
The ZYYX+ monitors the print and if something goes wrong it pauses the print automatically. You can then identify the problem and in some cases even resume printing.
ZYYX Filament Monitor
The ZYYX+ detects if you run out of filament or if the filament gets tangled. If so, it pauses the print so you can fix the problem and resume printing.
Maintenance Made Easier
The design of the print head allows for an easy access of the feeder mechanism for keeping it in top condition.
The Reliable ZYYX Extruder
Filament jams are rare with the ZYYX extruder: The hot end is thermally isolated from the feeder mechanism by a custom designed “hot end holder” in PEEK plastic. The filament is also isolated by a PTFE tube all the way down to the melt zone of the hot end.
The ZYYX Build Plate
The surface characteristics of the ZYYX build plate is designed for optimal adhesion between model and plate. Together with the closed chamber and our proABS this reduces warp when printing ABS.
It is Easy to Use
Professional Grade Print Software
The ZYYX+ comes with the Simplify3D Integrated 3D Printing Software, an all-in-one software suite with fully customized profiles for the ZYYX+ and ZYYX proFilaments.
ZYYX Build Plate System
The Auto Leveling functionality of the ZYYX+ eliminates the need for tedious adjustments of the mechanics before every print. Furthermore; to make it easy for you to remove the finished model the build plate can be lifted out of the printer. This is facilitated by the use of magnets which hold the build plate in position during the print.
The motion planner algorithm and the extrusion algorithms are optimized for removing vibrations and improving retractions. The result is smoother surfaces and a higher quality of finer details.
The moving parts around the print-head are all aluminum, which increases stability and reduces vibrations. This will improve the print quality as well as extending the lifetime of the printer.
State-of-the-art Print Fan
The powerful print fan will cool the plastic at the extrusion point to prevent curling. Furthermore; the print fan speed can be adjusted in Simplify3D to tune the cooling power to different filament types.
The enclosed printing space keeps the print environment draught free and maintains a stable temperature in the build chamber. This will keep your prints free from tensions and other print defects. Together with the ZYYX build plate and the ZYYX proABS this reduces warp when printing ABS.
It is Quiet and Fume Free
The enclosed chamber with its negative pressure will contain any odour. The outgoing air then passes through an active carbon filter to remove any fumes.
The optimzed motion algorithms, the robust design and the enclosed chamber keeps the sound to a minimum.
Daniel Norée, award-winning Swedish designer, maker, speaker and 3dprinting evangelist and creator of the OpenR/C Project. - I hit print and walk away, there´s no reason to stick around anymore. Finally a printer that just works!
Ali Berzah Can, CAD Design Engineer, Volvo Cars - a truly impressive 3d printer! The printer offers functions and reliability that should be the standard of the market.
Philipp Mittermaier, M.D. , CEO of Mittep AB - Driven by the need for good training aids, we have developed the Anestetix Endotracheal Intubation Simulator. We use the ZYYX 3D Printer in our production of the mannequin models, and the high reliability of the product has greatly improved our throughput.
