M300 3D printer helped Design a Revolutionary Motorbike
Zortrax M300 is the 3D printer of choice for former Ferrari engineers who founded Vins Motors to build Duecinquanta, a devilishly fast motorbike. Its carbon fiber chassis, truly unique 2-stroke engine, and innovative aerodynamics are just a few examples of what Rapid Prototyping with Z-ABS and Z-HIPS3D printing materials can accomplish in automotive industry.
“I wanted to see, to touch, every single part coming off the drawing board. 3D printing with the Zortrax M300 made that possible”, says Vincenzo Mattia, CEO and founder of Vins Motors.

Zortrax M200 and M300 3D printers work for NASA
NASA wants to launch the Asteroid Redirect Mission(ARM) in the early 2020s. There are two variants of the ARM currently under development. The first is entirely robotic. The second, known as the Asteroid Redirect Crewed Mission (ARCM), involves sending astronauts onboard an Orion spacecraft to explore a small asteroid redirected into a stable orbit around the Moon and get the collected samples back to Earth. Engineers at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston are working on the right set of tools for astronauts to complete such missions. First functional prototypes of the Geology Sampling System for Small Bodies have been 3D printed with Z-ULTRAT filament on the Zortrax M200. The functional prototypes have been successfully tested at Aquarius underwater laboratory, 3.5 miles off Key Largo, Florida.

3D Printing in Medicine – Facial Reconstruction Surgery
Doctors at the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Ward of Clinical University Hospital in Olsztyn, Poland, work with full-scale models of patients’s skulls 3D printed on theZortrax M200 with Z-ABS filament. Based on CT scans, those models help in shaping personalized implants prior to surgery. Only in the 2015-2017 period, the ward admitted approximately 300 patients. 55% of them suffered from orbital traumas and over 80% of those cases required orbital floor reconstruction. 3D printing can make their treatment more effective and safer.
