ZMorph Multifunctional Toolhead

Hardware and software manufacturer ZMorph is about to offer, in November of this year, three new innovative global solutions to the company's line of personal fabrication devices – a laser cutter, 3D scanner and a 5-axis universal toolhead adapter.

The interchangeable toolhead system allows makers to print with all types of available plastics, ceramics, rubber, nylon, chocolate and even cake.

The toolhead also functions as a 3D milling machine, and it's unique design allows for multiple techniques and materials to be used for personal fabrication.

There are currently some nine different subtractive and additive fabrication techniques available via the company's array of solutions, and they're all compatible with ZMorph's specialized Voxelizer software.

"Multifunctionality is ZMorph's main advantage," says Przemek Jaworski, CEO and Founder of ZMorph "It allows your 3D printer to be so much more. It becomes your personal fabricator – a mini factory that can work in almost every workshop, office or home. We focus primarily on enabling production of objects in a variety of technologies."

Later this year ZMorph plans to offer additional toolheads for cutting and engraving, 3D scanning and printing elastic materials.

The keystone of the ZMorph system is an innovative and technologically advanced, in-house developed, software package based on voxels – three-dimensional pixels. They call it Voxelizer, and it provides excellent 3D print quality in addition to offering support for users in the proper preparation of their 3D models.

"We managed to present our vision for creating to a vast public – together with our latest software release. We also acquired several new distributors, so that our products will now be on sale in additional European markets such as France, Switzerland, Finland, Sweden, Turkey and Russia, as well as in Israel," said Bartosz Weryho, the COO of ZMorph.

Created in 2012 as a modification of the RepRap open source printer project, the team at ZMorph say their main objective was to make 3D printing technology available to users unfamiliar with programming, electronics or mechanics and to give them a tool for prototyping for their own products.

ZMorph's devices can already be purchased in the United Kingdom, United States, the Netherlands and Scandinavia, and there are plans in the works to launch the company's first specialty retail store in the Dutch city of Haarlem, NL, this autumn.
