Why we picked ZMorph 2.0 SX:
3D printing has come a long way in the past few years, and the number of filament options is now wider than ever — but even with so many printing material options, you’re bound to embark on a few projects where additive manufacturing just isn’t ideal. Sometimes you’ll find yourself wishing you had a CNC mill or a laser cutter — and for those situations, you’ll wish you had a ZMorph.
You know those all-in-one printer/scanner/copier machines? ZMorph is basically the 3D version of that idea. It’s a 3D printer, a CNC mill, and a laser cutter, all rolled into one. What that means is that in addition to the ability to print virtually any object in plastic, you’ll also be able to mill and laser cut things out of real wood, leather, glass, or even PCB laminate.
This versatility is made possible by ZMorph’s interchangeable tool head system, which allows you to choose between a hot end/extruder for 3D printing, a laser diode for cutting, or a CNC toolhead for milling. These heads can be swapped out in a matter of minutes, and changing modes in the software only takes a few clicks of your mouse. So if you’re looking for a more capable fabrication station, ZMorph should definitely be on your list.
