The Zim project’s unique features include:

Dual printing head

Zim is built with one or two extruders. Now users can choose to either print a 3D
object in multiple colors, or use one extruder to print in color while using the other
extruder to print a support structure in PVA plastic (which dissolves in water).

Connected, plug & play and user friendly

Zim can be controlled remotely via smartphone, tablet, or PC using the printer’s
built-in Ethernet and WiFi. Zim is also equipped with a state of the art micro-camera, so
users can check in on their 3D printing projects even when they are on the go.

Exclusive refillable filament cartridge

Zim’s cartridge system loads the filaments automatically and safely into the
extruders. Cartridges protect PVA from moisture and are convenient to store. Best of all,
Zim’s cartridges are available in a rainbow of colors, and Zeepro offers a refillable
cartridge for those who want to use their own filament.

Professional printability

Zim features a fine resolution (as low as 80 microns per layer) with a print volume of
205 cubic inches (5.9″x5.9″x5.9″). Zim prints 3D objects at a fast speed (up to 110 mm/s)
in ABS or PLA, and provides more than 20 printing modes, ranging from standard to expert.

Sleek design

Zim’s elegant design features a monobloc aluminum C frame. Zim fits in any home or
office, and is easily portable.

“We dreamt about making the best personal 3D printer in the world. We wanted it to be
plug and play, as well as really easy to use. We also wanted it to be connected, precise
and fast… all that enclosed in a beautiful design and affordable. We assembled a great
team of highly motivated and talented designers and engineers. Together, we imagined Zim.
We are very proud to present Zim on Kickstarter starting September 13th.” Philippe
Guglielmetti, Zeepro’s CEO.

The Zim project will go live on Kickstarter September 13th, 2013.
