EnvisionTEC Perfactory Micro
The speed at which 3d objects are printed, measured in millimeters per second.
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.
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.
A single design can be made up using different colored materials simultaneously.
XYZprinting da Vinci 1.0
The highest possible x-axis resolution as measured in microns.
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).
Printrbot JR v2
The highest possible y-axis resolution as measured in microns.
The highest possible z-axis (vertical) resolution as measured in microns.
This is the biggest size of object that you can print.
