Fabbster Kit: 18 facts and highlights

1. Uses fused deposition modeling (FDM)

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.

2. has an external memory slot

The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) so that you can either extend the internal storage with affordable memory modules or you can retrieve data, such as photographs, easily from a memory card.

3. height

540mm
Robox: 240mm

4. 3D print speed

The speed at which 3d objects are printed, measured in millimeters per second.
600mm/s
Fabbster Kit: 600mm/s

5. maximum creation size

This is the biggest size of object that you can print.
230 x 230 x 210
Bits from Bytes RapMan Education: 490 x 500 x 850

6. layer thickness

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).
44µm
Printrbot JR v2: 0.4µm

7. Prints in ABS plastic

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.

8. Prints in PLA

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.

9. Prints in wood

The printer is able to print in wood. This typically involves printing using a mixture of wood particles and a binding agent, which dries as solid wood.

11. number of colors per print

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

12. higher z-axis resolution

The highest possible z-axis (vertical) resolution as measured in microns.
3µm
Robox: 0.5µm

13. higher x-axis resolution

The highest possible x-axis resolution as measured in microns.
11µm
Robox: 2µm

14. higher y-axis resolution

The highest possible y-axis resolution as measured in microns.
11µm
Robox: 2µm

15. nozzle size

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.
0.4mm
Robox: 0.3mm

16. USB ports

With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.

17. width

590mm
EnvisionTEC Perfactory Micro: 230mm

18. 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.
