Zortrax M300

The Zortrax M300 boasts a large build volume, precise prints, and support for a variety of materials. The assisted calibration is smooth and accurate, giving feedback as you tighten screws underneath the bed.

Pluses and Minuses

One standout feature is the perforated bed, which resulted in extremely solid first layers. The mandatory rafts were easy to remove, but you can’t cancel while they’re printing. I found it lacked some features that I’d expect at this price point, with just a single extruder, a long ramp-up time for each print, and a small and sometimes hard to read display screen.

Accurate, High-Quality Prints

The Z-Suite software is great for those who don’t want to tinker: just install, load a design, set the material, and slice. The M300 could be good for producing large, low-maintenance yet extremely high-quality prints.
