3D Systems Projet 1500 vs MakerBot Replicator: 20 facts in comparison

1. Has WiFi

The device can connect to WiFi.
3D Systems Projet 1500
MakerBot Replicator
20% have it

2. Creates support structures

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

3. Uses fused deposition modeling (FDM)

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.

6. 1.75mm filament diameter

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.

12. Prints in PLA

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.

15. layer thickness

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).

100µm

16. Is pre-assembled

As the product arrives fully assembled, you do not have to build it from a kit.

19. Prints in full color

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.

20. Uses selective laser sintering (SLS)

Printers based on selective laser sintering (SLS) use a powerful laser to heat and fuse plastic, metal or ceramic powder particles together, layer-by-layer, to form a solid model. The main advantage of SLS printing is that it can produce objects with complex geometries, using a wide variety of materials.
