The Zortrax Perf Board, or Perfboard as it is sometime spelled, is a perforated build plate that can be mounted to the Zortrax M200’s heated bed. It exists because some users have had issues with warping, when printing with ABS. Although reports of this have been minimal, the Perfboard prevents warping because some of the molten filament enters the holes of the board and hardens, thus providing support to the part.
The product for sale here today has been designed specifically for the Zortrax M200. It has been cut to size, and when locked into place, it offers a completely flat surface for parts to adhere to; this is a particularly important feature, because cheaper boards - specifically those made at home through DIY - are not completely flat. This is an issue, because parts that aren’t printed on a flat surface will not be true to a CAD design.
Removing a part from the Zortrax Perfboard is easy; the Perfboard itself simply lifts off the bed and you then cut the part from the bottom, flush with the board, or you can twist your part providing it is stable and rigid. While this solution isn’t for everyone, many Zortrax M200 users have found that this Perfboard does improve print consistency.
Whenever we are asked by someone what 3D printer they should buy, there are always a few brands on the tip of our tongue. And Zortrax is always one of them. The reason is simple - quality. From their printers to their filaments and supplies, Zortrax create a quality product. We know fresh from the box, their printers will work, and their materials will be on point. There’s never an unwelcome surprise with Zortrax.
This consistency is why professionals use them religiously. From moving product prototyping in-house to making accurate dental models from 3D patient scans, there’s a Zortrax 3D printer to be found in nearly every application. Not on a trial basis either, but as an embedded product that solves a design or production challenge.
Zortrax was founded in 2013 and is a Polish brand. Early machines won awards, and that trend has continued ever since. They make their own filaments which offer an additive manufacturing solution to common applications. Z-NYLON, for example, is incredibly strong and can be processed with machines meant for machining metals. There are countless more materials to choose from which transcend the use cases of ABS and PLA.
