Zortrax Inventure

Professional dual-extrusion 3D printer

Zortrax Inventure works in LPD Plus technology. Impeccable precision and an ability to work as a short series production device make it a smart desktop machine for professional applications in various fields from industrial design, through medicine, to engineering.

The industrial class 3D printer
that fits on your desk

Zortrax Inventure is an affordable desktop machine with capabilities found almost exclusively in large industrial 3D printers: a dissolvable support system, an enclosed heated chamber and a built-in HEPA filter. All of those features combined and integrated with Zortrax Ecosystem makes Zortrax Inventure a plug & play desktop 3D printer offering industrial-class performance.

Features of Zortrax Inventure

Innovative dual-extrusion system
One extruder feeds two 3D printing filaments to two nozzles: one for the model and one for water-soluble support structures. This way we could reduce size and weight of the mechanism.
Enclosed printing chamber
The build platform is practically sealed off from the surrounding environment to ensure tightly controlled 3D printing conditions.
Built-in HEPA filter
A HEPA filter catches over 99% of 3D printing emissions, including ultra-fine particles below 100 nm in diameter.
Smart cartridges
3D printing materials for Zortrax Inventure come in smart cartridges that inform you about the type of filament inside and whether it's about to run out.

Dedicated filaments

Range of 3D printing filaments dedicated for Zortrax Inventure covers various professional applications from prototyping to short-series production. Inventure filaments come in smart cartridges monitoring how much of the filament is left inside.

Available materials: Z-ULTRAT Plus , Z-PETG , Z-PLA , Z-SEMIFLEX

Z-SEMIFLEX

Tough and flexible

Z-SEMIFLEX is a flexible TPU 3D printing filament offering great interlayer adhesion and resistance to temperatures reaching 130 °C (266 °F).

Z-PETG

Resistant to chemicals

Z-PETG is a PET 3D printing filament mixed with glycol to make it more durable and less prone to shrinkage. It's highly resistant to acids, alkalis, and oils.

Z-PLA

Precise and eco-friendly

Z-PLA is a precise, biodegradable 3D printing filament. Perfect for elaborate shapes with fine details as it has almost no shrinkage.

Z-ULTRAT Plus

Durable and impact resistant

Z-ULTRAT Plus is an ABS 3D printing filament modified to reduce shrinkage and achieve better interlayer adhesion. Perfect for precise, heavy-duty parts.

Support materials

Zortrax Inventure works with two water-soluble PVA support filaments: Z-SUPPORT and Z-SUPPORT Plus. They are both biodegradable and need no additional solvents.

Z-SUPPORT Plus Z-ULTRAT Plus Build Tray Plus (Black)
Z-SUPPORT can be used with a standard Build Tray included with Zortrax Inventure. Black Build Tray Plus is recommended for a combination of Z-ULTRAT Plus and Z-SUPPORT Plus due to higher 3D printing temperatures.

Z-SUPPORT

Standard PVA

Z-SUPPORT is a PVA soluble support filament designed to work at temperatures around 180° C (356° F). Compatible with Z-PLA, Z-PETG, and Z-SEMIFLEX 3D printing materials.

Z-SUPPORT PLUS

High-temperature PVA

Z-SUPPORT Plus is a PVA-based soluble support filament made for temperatures reaching 245° C (505° F). Compatible with ABS-based Z-ULTRAT Plus 3D printing material.

Dissolving support material

Z-SUPPORT and Z-SUPPORT Plus are PVA-based materials soluble in water. Zortrax DSS Station is a soluble support removal device circulating water at optimal temperatures to maximize the dissolution rate.

Step 1 Put into water
Take the model off the build tray and submerge it in water inside the Zortrax DSS Station.
Step 2 Rinse
Take the model out of the Zortrax DSS Station. Sometimes it's necessary to remove remnants of support with a brush included in the kit.
Step 3 Dry
Carefully dry the model once the support dissolution is done. That's all. The support structures are gone.

Key features of Z-SUITE

Z-SUITE 2 slicing software is a link between your idea and product. Use the multitude of functionalities and tools to streamline the 3D model preparation process.

Intuitive model processing
Just load your 3D file and Z-SUITE 2 will automatically convert it to the model ready to print.
Thin wall detection
Z-SUITE 2 pinpoints walls that would be too thin to be printed properly, allowing you to detect problematic areas before printing the model.
Multiple infill options
Different infill patterns allow you to ensure required durability of the model and reduce the material usage.
Model stacking
Speed up the production by utilizing advantages of dissolvable support. Stack multiple models and 3D print them in one go.
