2.Uses fused deposition modeling (FDM)
3D Systems CubePro
botObjects ProDesk3D

Printers based on fused deposition modeling (FDM) use a thermoplastic filament, which is heated to its melting point and then extruded through a nozzle, layer by layer, to create the object. One of the main advantages of printers based on FDM is that they work with a wide range of materials.

Components

1.Creates support structures
3D Systems CubePro
botObjects ProDesk3D

The printer will automatically build extra structures to support the item as it is printing. The extra support can then be easily removed.

2.Has a heated build platform
3D Systems CubePro
botObjects ProDesk3D

A heated build platform helps keep the lowest levels of a print warm as the higher layers are printed. This allows the overall print to cool more evenly.

3.1.75mm filament diameter
3D Systems CubePro
botObjects ProDesk3D

The 1.75mm filament diameter is gradually overtaking the previous 3mm standard. The 1.75mm filament feeds into the printer with greater ease and allows for more detail in the printing process.

4.3D print speed

15mm/s

175mm/s

The speed at which 3d objects are printed, measured in millimeters per second.

5.number of extruder heads

3

2

More extruder heads allow you to use different colors and different types of material at the same time. A second extruder is also required to build PVA/PLA support structures around items as they are printed.

6.Has an automatic platform calibrator

This feature saves time and effort in terms of maintenance, however the build platform itself still needs to be manually levelled.

Materials

1.Prints in PLA
3D Systems CubePro
botObjects ProDesk3D

Polylactic acid (PLA) is popular in 3D printing as it cools and sets quickly. Unlike ABS plastic, it is biodegradable and therefore better for the environment. It can be used to build support structures for other printouts, as it can then be dissolved leaving no marks.

2.Prints in ABS plastic
3D Systems CubePro
botObjects ProDesk3D

The printer prints in ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene). This is up to 30 times stronger than regular plastic and is commonly used in 3D printing.

3.Prints in PVA
3D Systems CubePro
botObjects ProDesk3D

Polyvinyl Acetate is another form of plastic used in 3d printing similar to ABS. It can be used to build support structures for other prints, as it can then be dissolved leaving no marks.

4.Prints in full color
3D Systems CubePro
botObjects ProDesk3D

Similar to regular 2D printers, this type of 3D printer mixes different colors between cartridges. This process allows the printer to reproduce the color spectrum, therefore allowing you to print in almost any color.

Print sizes

1.maximum creation size

2.layer thickness

75µm

25µm

The thinner each print layer is, the more detailed you can make your designs. Layer thickness is often also referred to as resolution and is measured in microns (µm).

Best

0.4µm

3. higher z-axis resolution

100µm

25µm

The highest possible z-axis (vertical) resolution as measured in microns.

Connectivity

1.Has WiFi
3D Systems CubePro
botObjects ProDesk3D

The device can connect to WiFi.

2.has an external memory slot
3D Systems CubePro
botObjects ProDesk3D

The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) so that you can either extend the internal storage with affordable memory modules or you can retrieve data, such as photographs, easily from a memory card.

Features

1.Has plug and play feature
3D Systems CubePro
botObjects ProDesk3D

The device is set up and ready to be used with the included software.

2.Is pre-assembled
3D Systems CubePro
