The M200 is a state-of-the-art, precision-engineered, revolutionary piece of equipment capable of perfect prints right out of the box. That plus its competitive price point makes it a very attractive option for beginners, a segment where Zortrax has done remarkably well. There have been many, many requests for Zortrax to open up more advanced settings like temperature, feed rates, rafts, etc., and Zortrax have always disagreed on the grounds that the key to the M200's quality is its thoroughly-tested and perfectly-tuned print profiles and materials that save users the hassle and waste associated with trial-and-error.
It's an understandable position, and one that I can agree with on some levels. But here's the thing: yes, many of us bought the M200 because it's beginner-friendly; but even though we were beginners when we received our M200's, we now have a fair amount of experience under our belts and we're ready to start tinkering and experimenting ourselves. Zortrax has taught us the importance of a high-quality, consistent spool of filament and we're ready to start using high-quality, consistent filaments that cover applications not yet met by the Z-Filament line. We want our state-of-the-art printers to print with state-of-the-art materials like metal-infused and flexible filaments, we want our precision-engineered printers to print with ultra-precise materials like nylon; and we want our revolutionary printers to revolutionize our workflows for other things like investment casting with wax filaments, pottery with ceramic filaments, and electronics with conductive filaments.
Zortrax, there is a whole world of possibilities out there for anyone with a 3D printer and we have faith that the M200 is capable of handling them all. We just want you to show some faith and give us the freedom to explore these possibilities. I'd say something like, "you gave us wings, now let us fly," but the truth is you gave us a rocket engine and now we want to blast off to Jupiter.
