release
for MAC
for WINDOWS
  • Added support for Z-ESD v2 for M Series Plus printers (0.09; 0.14; 0.19; 0.29 mm); M300 Dual and Inventure (0.15; 0.20 mm for dual-extrusion mode).
    Added support for new External Resins for Inkspire:

  • AmeraLabs AMD-3 Black Model
  • AmeraLabs DMD-21 Dental Model
  • Power Resins PowerCast Burn
  • Power Resins PowerCast Opaque
  • Siraya Tech Blu Clear V1
  • Siraya Tech Blu Clear V2
  • Added support for Z-ABS v2 (M200, M200 Plus and M300 Plus).

M Series Plus, M300 Dual, Inventure:

  • Introduced the new Contour-infill gap option – you can now change the space that is between outer contours of a model and outer contours of infill,

Inkspire:

  • Improved default support settings – adhesion between models and support has been increased,

All devices:

  • minor bug fixes.
  • New types of editable support are available for FDM printers: Automatic, Point, Surface, Single Surface and Area type. The way of detecting areas that require support has been changed:
    Point type is for a single, small point of a model,
    Surface type is for the whole slope or flat surface in a model,
    Single Surface type is for single overhanging layers,
    Area type is for the selected range of overhanging layers in a model. This type can also be enlarged to surrounding layers,
  • Editable support is now available for the dual-extrusion mode for the M300 Dual and Inventure,
  • The program can now repair files when loading projects for the Inkspire,
  • The new Variable Layer Thickness option for Inkspire allows users to divide models into one or more areas, each of which can be printed with different layer thickness settings. Within one model, one area can be printed with thicker layers (for parts with less details) and other areas can be printed with finer layers (for parts which require high quality of details),
  • You can now select the Material Group before you select a specific resin type for Inkspire models,
  • Retraction speed has been increased to 100mm/s in the External Materials menu,
  • Bug fixes:
    • improved communication with printers: failsafe responses should be properly displayed,
    • a printer’s current state should be properly displayed in the My Devices panel,
    • if a print job fails to start from Z-SUITE, printers should display proper message relating to the cause of failure,
    • Z-ABS should be properly recognized when sending files to printers’ storage,
    • printers now display the number of replicated .zcodex copies next to the miniature during a print job,
    • models should now be properly arranged in the workspace after using the Split option,
    • opening .zprojx files for Custom Printers should no longer cause problems,
    • opening large .zprojx files should no longer cause problems with the workspace view.

Z-SUITE 2 for macOS is stable only for versions up to 10.14 (Mojave). When using newer versions, Z-SUITE 2 may not run as efficient.

  • Introduces new features and modes for Inventure – the device can now print in both single- and dual-extrusion modes; you can edit supports in the single extrusion mode; new materials are now supported; it is possible to load materials both from the cartridge and from the spool, it is now possible to adjust raft and first layer settings (.stl files for special spool holders are available at: Zortrax Library).
  • Improves the optimal rotation angle in the Rotation Optimization tool for resin printers,
  • Adds new profiles for the 0.6 mm nozzle in the single extrusion mode with Z-ULTRAT (M300 Dual),
  • It is now possible to start a print even when the .zcodex settings do not match the loaded material or the installed nozzle,
  • Adds the Antialiasing option in the External LCD Printer menu for the .photon file format,
  • The preview of .zcodex now runs more smoothly in the Preview step,
  • Bug fixes:
    • empty infill should no longer occur with ABS-based materials with 0.39 layer thickness on the M300,
    • loaded external materials should no longer be displayed as unknown in the My Devices panel with M Series Plus printers,
    • saving projects for Inkspire in the Print Settings step should no longer cause problems,
    • Wi-Fi connection should no longer cause the program to freeze when switching tabs, performing actions, or using the Auto-arrange option,
    • slicing time for models with a lot of details has been shortened (FDM printers),
    • keyboard shortcuts Shift + 3 and Shift + 4 should no longer cause problems.

Z-SUITE 2 for macOS is stable only for versions up to 10.14 (Mojave). When using newer versions, Z-SUITE 2 may not run as efficient.
