Zortrax introduces a free speed mode that enables desktop 3D printers to print up to three times faster. The feature is included in the new firmware release for Zortrax M300 Dual and M Series Plus 3D printers and requires no hardware modifications. Speed mode is especially suited for mass production and companies with high lead time requirements.
Speed mode increases printing speed and is suitable for companies that rely on rapid prototyping. The feature may also be of interest to individual users* who want to complete projects faster.
“The strength of our new speed mode lies primarily in the fact that it is a completely free solution, which does not need any additional hardware modifications. It is especially beneficial for all those businesses and individual users that care about short lead times most and 3D print numerous parts, either on their own, or through Zortrax 3D printing services. The installation process is simple and convenient so that all our desktop 3D printers’ users can upgrade their machines easily”, says Michał Siemaszko, Head of Research and Development Department at Zortrax.
To use the speed mode, users* must download the installation file from the Zortrax Support Center website and save it to a USB drive. The drive should then be inserted into the 3D printer and the instructions on the display followed. The speed mode parameters are available in the “Print Speed Adjustments” section.
The new speed mode allows for more design flexibility and customizable print speed during the printing process. Faster printing leads to increased production capacity and competitiveness.
“We’re glad to present the speed mode to our whole 3D printing community. The new feature introduced for Zortrax M200 Plus, M300 Plus and M300 Dual translates into tangible benefits for multiple branches of industry. Being able to print up to 3 times faster, businesses gain great design flexibility, manufacturers can produce significantly more units during the same time, and mass production is enhanced. We truly recommend this solution in every manufacturing process, where lead time is of key importance”, summarizes Mariusz Babula, CEO at Zortrax.
