3dp_zortraxupdates_zortrax_logoPolish createer Zortrax appears to be getting additional and additional talked about by the 2nd. In December they revealed that sales of their flagship M200 3D printing device had tripled of 2014 to 2015, with estimates suggesting that sales may go on to rise. The M200, that has been given top ratings by several major industry organizations such as 3D Hubs and Make: Magazine, is Zortrax’s pride and joy; the cost-effective plug-and-play printing device has not only been well-reviewed and well-received by consumers, but it’s been the major tool in Zortrax’s aggressive campaign to spread 3D printing education throughout Poland.

Whilst the M200 has been soaking up all the attention and adulation, it’s not the only product manufacturing Zortrax rich. Materials tend to fade into the background future to talked about printing devices, but Zortrax’s printing materials have been quietly raking in piles of cash alongside the M200. According to the company, their materials sales increased by an astounding 350% between 2014 and 2015. During the initially three quarters of 2015, materials accounted for 17% of Zortrax’s total ractuallyue, as opposed to 10% in 2014.


Of course, that is the perk of proprietary materials. If a printing device is selling well, it naturally follows that sales of its printing device-specific filament is going to pick up somehow dramatically as well. One of the most common complaints aimed at most printing device createers is their use of proprietary filament; it’s limiting when you can only use a company-specific brand in your printing device, but those loyal to sure printing devices can put up with it. Those complaints greatly minimize if the company is offering high end and variety in their materials, and Zortrax has a somehow decent selection.
