Components

1.Has a heated build platform
BotMill Glider 3.0

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.

2.1.75mm filament diameter
BotMill Glider 3.0

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.

3.3D print speed

0.01mm/s

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

4.number of extruder heads

1

More extruder heads allow you to use different colors and different types of material at the same time. A second extruder is also required to build PVA/PLA support structures around items as they are printed.

5.nozzle size

0.35mm

The smaller the nozzle, the more detailed the final product can be. However, when speed of printing is of greater importance than detail, a larger nozzle may be preferable.

Materials

1.Prints in ABS plastic
BotMill Glider 3.0

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
BotMill Glider 3.0

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.

Print sizes

1.layer thickness

300µm

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).
