General info

1.Uses fused deposition modeling (FDM)
Cubify CubeX Trio
The Future is 3D Glacier Steel

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.Creates support structures
Cubify CubeX Trio
The Future is 3D Glacier Steel

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

2.Has a heated build platform
Cubify CubeX Trio
The Future is 3D Glacier Steel

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.

3.1.75mm filament diameter
Cubify CubeX Trio
The Future is 3D Glacier Steel

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.number of extruder heads

3

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.

Materials

1.Prints in ABS plastic
Cubify CubeX Trio
The Future is 3D Glacier Steel

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.number of colors per print

3

1

A single design can be made up using different colored materials simultaneously.

3.Prints in PLA
Cubify CubeX Trio
The Future is 3D Glacier Steel

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.
