    General info

    1.Uses fused deposition modeling (FDM)
    3D Systems CubePro
    CubePro
    RepRap Prusa Mendel V2

    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
    CubePro
    RepRap Prusa Mendel V2

    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

    RepRap Prusa Mendel V2

    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

    RepRap Prusa Mendel V2

    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

    Materials

    1.Prints in ABS plastic
    3D Systems CubePro
    CubePro
    RepRap Prusa Mendel V2

    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.

    2.Prints in PLA

    CubePro
    RepRap Prusa Mendel V2

    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.

    100µm

    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).
