This page describes Zmorph 3d printer (pronounced zee-morph), its construction, parts list and related 'how to' tutorials. Zmorph is a unique 3d printer based on RepRap Prusa Mendel machine, with major differences in frame design and extruder. It can be easily equipped with chamber that keeps the prints warm enough to prevent any warping. Working area is larger than in traditional RepRap, and is currently 210x230x160mm.

Key features : - acrylic perspex laser cut frame, assuring rigidity of construction (policarbonate might be used as well) - clip-on extruder design, easy attachment/detachment, simple access to nozzle and heating block - chamber (optional) increasing the temperature by 30-35 degrees, which assures warp-free printing (when printing large objects, heated bed is not enough)
