ZEUS - The World's Smartest 3D Printer
The Easiest To Use 3D Printer
Zeus is the only true plug and play device of its kind on the market. Within 10 minutes of unboxing, you will be able to create your first print.
We pride ourselves on beauty and simplicity and Zeus' sleek and intuitive touchscreen display allows even beginner users to comfortably navigate the software that is provided onboard.
Zeus takes the guesswork out of 3D technology by providing world class support. Our first-in-class 'report' feature allows you to communicate any issues directly to our engineers with a turnaround time of 24 hours, all available onboard.
Zeus is one of the leading choice among schools, universities, and libraries due to its ease of use and numerous capabilities. With the addition of the apps currently in progress, Zeus is a powerhouse for educational needs.
Whether you need to prototype a new part or recreate an obsolete object, Zeus is here to help. The ability to both scan and print makes Zeus extremely useful for industry professionals.
Find fun objects to print using the 'search' function directly onboard Zeus. No need to use your computer here, simply type in what you want and print it out. Design your own models and watch Zeus bring them to life!
Plug and Play
A truly standalone device, no external software or hardware is necessary. All you need is right at your fingertips. From editing files to slicing, to searching the web for designs and much more, everything can be accomplished onboard Zeus.
Wifi and Software Updates
Zeus' software constantly is being improved and upgraded. As long as your Zeus is connected to the internet, you will be able to reap all the benefits of these biweekly updates. Updates include new features, such as apps, improvements and much more.
Sit back and let Zeus do the dirty work. With fully automated calibration and bed-leveling, you will never have to lift a finger to adjust any knobs or whistles.
Zeus' extruder and turntable are easily removable for quick troubleshooting so there is minimal downtime when you need to get projects finished quickly and efficiently. In addition, a number of parts inside Zeus are 3D-printable so if any should break, files for the parts can be found on our website and you can have a new part created within hours.

Top customer reviews
First is the good:
1) The form factor is fantastic. While it takes up a lot of desk space, the concept is good, and their industrial design is one of the best I've seen in the 3d printer space.
2)There are frequent updates to the software, and it has improved materially since it first arrived.
3) It has plenty of built in ways to connect to the printer, including wireless, wired, or traditionally USB.
4) Really like the stand-alone nature. Can keep models in memory (both in STL, as well as gcode form so you don't have to re-slice models you want to reprint), you can upload via a built in web browser, you can use a USB stick.
5) The extruder as a "cartridge" is a really good idea, and makes it simple to upgrade (or fix in my case)
Unfortunately, the bad is enough for me to not recommend this printer, even for the most technically minded, and adventurous out there
1) The filament path to the fundamentally flawed. The extruder is very high in the device, so there is not much clearance from the top of the machine to where the filament enters the extruder. This creates an unnatural bend in the filament, which combined with the natural tension of a filament roll unrolling latitudinally makes the filament break mid-print in about 80% of the time. a 20% success rate on printing is very, very frustrating. I've tried to compensate for this by creating an almost friction free path (keep the lid open, create a filament holder that sits above the printer), but this negates all of the form factor advantages the product has, and has created a mockery of my desktop.
2) My build plate is not level. You would think that an "auto-leveling" printer would compensate for this, but that's just not the case. The auto-level only seems to effect the raft it creates, not the model itself. If you want to build onto the buildplate, you are out of luck. Worse, there doesn't appear to be any way to manually level the build plate! Since my build plate has only increased in it's tilt since my purchase, the product itself has been reduced to scanning only.
3) The manufacturer communication is severely lacking. They have forum's on their website, and I would recommend any potential purchaser visit those forums before making a decision. All of my problems have been discussed on the forums, without a peep from the manufacturer. Other owners have had other problems, with no attempt to resolve any issues at all. From a PR perspective, they should take down their own forums because it only looks like they don't care about their product.
4) No spare parts at all. I thought about maybe trying to buy a new platform - you can't. At one point earlier in the year, the filament gear just popped off in the middle of a print. I found the gear, but not the tiny little M3 headless not that is supposed to keep it one. I had to buy one someplace else.
October 2 update: The machine is still running non-stop and the prints are consistently good. I had exactly one failed print that slipped from the plate. I have given up trying to print spheres for now. UHU glue is the ONLY way to go. Any other failed prints have been from human error, mostly from poor layouts. The scanner gets occasional use. It's just not producing "copies" of items, but "blobs" that somewhat resemble the original. I have figured out how to clean up the scans in CAD, but it's time consuming.
November 20 update: Scanning is working MUCH better now. It's actually useful. Printer is still going strong. My most reliable printer ever. When I compare it to the industrial printers at work, it stands up pretty well. Where it lacks in precision to the $100k and up units, it excels in speed and versatility. It's also insanely cheap to operate. Lastly, customer service is very good. Given the heartache I've had with other printers in this class, I'm changing my rating to 5 stars based on it's durability and overall usefulness to me.
I picked the Zeus because I wanted to be able to begin to use and enjoy 3D printing without having to learn a ton of software and tools first. I have been in IS/IT for 20+ years now, and don't have the time as I used to to invest in learning something new. The promise of Zeus was to bring to market a 3D printer that worked like your trusty and easy to use Inkket all-in-one printers. I think the Zeus does this even better than those!
I setup my Zeus on my ethernet LAN ( could use wireless, but I have network drops so I used that), I set it up in a location where it won't disturb anyone. Why is this important? Because this unit does not need a computer and I have actually never even used a computer to print or scan anything (more than I can say for most standard all-in-one desktop printers).
I send files to it directly through the web interface and with a couple of presses on the intuitive touch screen I am printing! It's great. My son loves it, he can even run it (8 years old!) that's how easy to use this platform is.
They update the software frequently and while I was very nervous with it in the beginning, being so careful and gentle in every interaction I made, I have found and learned that it is very forgiving and easy to access. I have had to remove the extruder to take out filament when I change spools, no problem. I have used it for 4+ months and printed about 50+ projects without a problem.
The only downside is that it is limited to PLA only. Perhaps an upgrade or swap of the extruder is something they might offer in the future for other filaments. There are plenty of features in the web interface I have not yet accessed and knowing it is all running on an open source Linux makes it ultimately that much more accessible and serviceable. (for example the interface did not have a means to change the time zone or setup a static IP), but there is a way to get into the actual Linux and do this very easily, simply plug in a USB mouse/keyboard and it's like having a computer with a 7" screen!
I have had filament break if I leave it in for a while due to the bend it stays at in the "park" position, but you can turn it off with the head in a lower position to reduce this.
Overall I am very happy, I have had several questions to the team and they have been friendly, courteous, professional and knowledgable in responding to my questions. I am very happy and I believe most first timers to 3D printing will enjoy this platform more than any other, I expect AIO to continually improve on this and am looking forward to that!
