The ZYYX+ features an easy to clean print head thanks to a rotating fan mount holding a powerful cooling fan. Moving parts around the print head are all aluminum, which minimizes vibration to produce more detailed prints and also extend the life of the printer. These factors all come together to allow the ZYYX+ to create the highest quality, most accurate parts possible.
Most 3D printers are not enclosed, meaning that draft and variations in room temperature can then lead to cracks in printed parts. The fully enclosed design of the ZYYX+ maintains even temperature within the build area and removes any risk of print failure due to cracking. The front of the machine has two magnetic doors which allow for easy access to remove parts or work on the extruder if necessary.
Unlike many other 3D printers, the build plate of the ZYYX+ can easily be taken in and out of the printer. This makes it convenient to examine and remove printed models.
The ZYYX+ monitors its filament supply and pauses the print if the filament becomes jammed or runs out. Once the jam is cleared or new filament is loaded, the print can be resumed. 3D printers without this system will instead “print in the air” if there is a filament issue, ruining the print.
The ZYYX+ maintains negative pressure in it's fully enclosed build chamber and passes the air through an active carbon filter, keeping your workshop clear of any unwanted odors. The filter is easily replaceable and mounted on the rear of the printer. This setup ensures that all odors from the molten plastic are contained within the build area and filtered out of the air that returns to your workshop, classroom or office.
Maintaining the correct distance between the nozzle and the build plate is essential for a successful print. The ZYYX+ measures this distance at three points before every print and compensates automatically for the positioning of the build plate and any tilting. Many printers require the user to do this adjustment by hand, which introduces human error into the leveling system. The automatic leveling system of the ZYYX+ 3D printer ensures a perfectly calibrated print bed, every time.
The surface of the build plate is specially designed to provide excellent adhesion between the model and plate, which is essential for successful printing. Adhesion is maintained by wiping the build plate with a thin layer of acetone, from time to time.
Each ZYYX+ 3D printer includes a fully stocked toolkit with everything you need to post-process your prints and calibrate the machine.
