2.Uses fused deposition modeling (FDM)
Da Vinci 3D Printer
MakerBot Replicator

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
Da Vinci 3D Printer
MakerBot Replicator

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

2.1.75mm filament diameter
Da Vinci 3D Printer
MakerBot Replicator

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.nozzle size

0.4mm

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.

4.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.

5.number of extruder heads

1

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.

2.Prints in PLA
Da Vinci 3D Printer
MakerBot Replicator

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.

3.Prints in ABS plastic
Da Vinci 3D Printer
MakerBot Replicator

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.

4.Prints in full color
Da Vinci 3D Printer
MakerBot Replicator

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.
