    General info

    1.Uses fused deposition modeling (FDM)

    The Future is 3D Glacier Peak

    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.Has a heated build platform

    The Future is 3D Glacier Peak

    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

    The Future is 3D Glacier Peak

    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.

    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 HIPS

    The Future is 3D Glacier Peak

    The printer is able to print in High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS). HIPS is similar to ABS plastic, but uses different solvents (limonene rather than acetone). HIPS is easy to paint and glue.

    2.Prints in PVA

    The Future is 3D Glacier Peak

    Polyvinyl Acetate is another form of plastic used in 3d printing similar to ABS. It can be used to build support structures for other prints, as it can then be dissolved leaving no marks.

    3.Prints in PLA

    The Future is 3D Glacier Peak

    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.

    4.Prints in full color

    The Future is 3D Glacier Peak

    Similar to regular 2D printers, this type of 3D printer mixes different colors between cartridges. This process allows the printer to reproduce the color spectrum, therefore allowing you to print in almost any color.

    5.Prints in ABS plastic

    Robox
    The Future is 3D Glacier Peak

    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.
