New Z adjust feature

At Morgan 3D Printers we always keep innovating, and the latest Z adjust feature firmware update is no exception.

Anyone that use 3D printers will attest to the fact that different materials will need different optimal first layer heights.

We have added an in print Z adjustment to allow you to adjust the first layer of your print on the fly!

Also check out the new experimental PET-G profiles for Smoothieware on the software setup page.  PET-G is a great material, since it prints almost as easily as PLA, and has great mechanical properties, all without the hassle and bad smell of ABS.

Keep tuned for more exciting innovations and options coming soon…

Morgan Year end Order party!

The end of 2015 is just about on us.  The Morgan factory is quiet and we are all enjoying some time with our families.

The South African currency, South African Rand is meanwhile trying out new record lows against the major world currencies.  This is a problem if you love technology as much as I do…

South Africans! Beat inflation and pre-order your Morgan today.  If you order and pay at least 50% deposit before the workshop opens on the 11th of January, we will add 5% discount on top of our 2015 price!

Delivery will be in the order of orders received, and on full settlement of the invoice.  You can order in the web store below, or contact us for a quotation if you have specific invoicing needs.

With the rand continuing on its slippery slope we will have to increase pricing a bit, but because source locally it should be much better than some of our unfortunate 3D printer importers.

We are also working on some essential options, available soon that will be compatible to Morgan 2 systems.

  • Filament out sensor
  • Controller with removable SD
  • … and some secret ones 😉

More on that soon!

And decided that the 3D printing day exhibition  was the perfect opportunity to introduce him to Cad-house’s Robotica, also designed by Sonia

LeaderEX Images

Thanks to the fine folks at htxt.africa we had the opportunity to attend LeaderEX in the Sandton convention centre last week.  It was a lot different in focus than most of the other maker-centric shows I attended over the years, and exactly what we needed in this point in time now that the business side of Morgan started to rear its head.

Here are some images courtesy of Gainor Andrews, one of the official photographers at the event.
