General info

1.Uses fused deposition modeling (FDM)
Bits from Bytes RapMan 3.2 3D Printer Kit Universal
Hyrel Journeyman E4

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.Has a heated build platform
Bits from Bytes RapMan 3.2 3D Printer Kit Universal
Hyrel Journeyman E4

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.

2.Creates support structures
Bits from Bytes RapMan 3.2 3D Printer Kit Universal
Hyrel Journeyman E4

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

3.1.75mm filament diameter

Hyrel Journeyman E4

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.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.

5.3D print speed

40mm/s

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

Materials

1.Prints in ABS plastic
Bits from Bytes RapMan 3.2 3D Printer Kit Universal
Hyrel Journeyman E4

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
Bits from Bytes RapMan 3.2 3D Printer Kit Universal
Hyrel Journeyman E4

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.
