2 years 3 weeks ago - Commented on Zortrax M200: Auto or Manual Calibration?

We have 3 Zortrax M200 which we use frequently and also move around a lot (customers, exhibitions etc), so we probably calibrate more frequently than most users.

I've tried to auto-calibrate on several occasions, but it's quite slow and laborious, so I prefer to do it manually using a business card to check the distance. Then I check the result by doing an autocalibrate just to make sure all the measuring points are within tolerance. Takes about 15mins. The longest part is waiting for the extruder to heat up.

Hi Anders

A quick response to your points.

I confirm the offer was very real.  We're a Zortrax reseller and were seriously tempted by it. The offer was only for a short time though.

The customer services is very good, quick and responsive. And there's lots of helpful information on the support pages and forums.

There was a "bad patch" recently when it took longer than usual to get responses, but that seems to be over now and I notice Zortrax have become much more active again.

And yes, the printer is really worth the money, we have 3 of them which are used all the time, and really we've got no plans to buy anything else. It's about as Plug and Play as you can get for a 3D Printer, with consistently excellent results. For alternatives look at the 3DHubs Trends and Printer guides. Just be clear on what you want to do with the thing and how much you want to tinker.

Thanks Marcin,

We'll definitely give the Z-ABS juice a try.

Hi

When printing objects with a large area, we rub a glue-stick (for sticking paper) all over the platform, except for the silver squares. Problem solved.

Haven't tried the ABS juice as suggested by Totof1965 yet. But we'll give it a try sometime.

We are a professional 3D print shop and use 3 Zortrax printers along with industrial printers. We keep checking out other desktop FDM printers and really can't see any good reason to buy another brand at the moment. They are easy to use, reliable and produce great quality models for the price. Closed environment is not an issue for us since we are not tinkerers - we just need the thing to work. Biggest downside is that filaments are more expensive than generic filaments, but again that's not an issue for us.

Hi Christian

Before the M200 starts printing, it checks the position of the build plate by raising it up until it contacts the nozzle. When the nozzle touches the build plate (on the silver coloured square) it completes an electrical circuit. But the circuit wont be made if the nozzle is completely caked with filament and the plate wont stop.

Give the nozzle a good clean and check the connectors on the build plate to make sure the pins aren't damaged and that they are firmly inserted.

Good luck

Richard

 

PS. I noticed it takes Zortrax longer to respond to tickets these days - come on Zortrax you can do better!

We had this issue a few times with large area prints. The solution that works every time for us is to rub a glue stick over the entire print area (avoiding the 5 metal contact squares). This provides just enough extra stickiness to prevent warping.
