Components

1.Has a heated build platform
BotMill Glider 3.0
Robo 3D Printer

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

Robo 3D Printer

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.number of extruder heads

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.

4.nozzle size

0.35mm

0.4mm

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.

5.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.

Materials

1.Prints in PLA
BotMill Glider 3.0
Robo 3D Printer

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.

2.Prints in ABS plastic

Robo 3D Printer

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.

Print sizes

1.layer thickness

300µm

100µm

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).
