Blue Printer SHS vs MakerGear M2: 12 facts in comparison

1. Has a heated build platform

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

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

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. 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. higher z-axis resolution

The highest possible z-axis (vertical) resolution as measured in microns.
140µm
Robox: 0.5µm
250µm

7. higher x-axis resolution

The highest possible x-axis resolution as measured in microns.
200µm
Robox: 2µm
100µm

8. Prints in ABS plastic

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.

9. 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.

10. 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
Printrbot JR v2: 0.4µm
50µm

11. Is pre-assembled

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