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

The printer is able to print in paper. 3D printing in paper involves an additive process whereby a laser cuts each layer of paper into the correct shape to create the final model. Paper 3D printed objects have a similar consistency to wood.
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).
