2.Uses fused deposition modeling (FDM)
3D Systems CubePro
FABtotum
Makemendel RapidBot 2.0 Kit

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
FABtotum
Makemendel RapidBot 2.0 Kit

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
FABtotum
Makemendel RapidBot 2.0 Kit

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

Makemendel RapidBot 2.0 Kit

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.number of extruder heads

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.

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
FABtotum
Makemendel RapidBot 2.0 Kit

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
FABtotum
Makemendel RapidBot 2.0 Kit

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 HIPS
3D Systems CubePro
FABtotum
Makemendel RapidBot 2.0 Kit

The printer is able to print in High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS). HIPS is similar to ABS plastic, but uses different solvents (limonene rather than acetone). HIPS is easy to paint and glue.

4.Prints in wood
3D Systems CubePro
FABtotum
Makemendel RapidBot 2.0 Kit

The printer is able to print in wood. This typically involves printing using a mixture of wood particles and a binding agent, which dries as solid wood.

Print sizes

1.maximum creation size

242 x 214 x 236

220 x 220 x 165

This is the biggest size of object that you can print.

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).
