General info

1.Uses fused deposition modeling (FDM)
Fablicator
FABtotum
Makemendel RapidBot 2.0 Kit

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
Fablicator
FABtotum
Makemendel RapidBot 2.0 Kit

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
Fablicator
FABtotum
Makemendel RapidBot 2.0 Kit

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
Fablicator
FABtotum
Makemendel RapidBot 2.0 Kit

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.

4.3D print speed

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.

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.

Materials

1.Prints in HIPS
Fablicator
FABtotum
Makemendel RapidBot 2.0 Kit

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 ABS plastic
Fablicator
FABtotum
Makemendel RapidBot 2.0 Kit

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.

3.Prints in PLA
Fablicator
FABtotum
Makemendel RapidBot 2.0 Kit

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 wood
Fablicator
FABtotum
Makemendel RapidBot 2.0 Kit

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.

802.11n is a wireless standard released in 2009. It has faster transfer rates and improved security compared to its predecessors - a, b and g.

3.has an external memory slot
Fablicator
FABtotum
Makemendel RapidBot 2.0 Kit

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.
