    General info

    1.Uses fused deposition modeling (FDM)
    Fablicator

    Stratasys Mojo

    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

    Stratasys Mojo

    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.Creates support structures

    Stratasys Mojo

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

    3.1.75mm filament diameter

    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

    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 HIPS
    Fablicator

    Stratasys Mojo

    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

    Stratasys Mojo

    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

    Stratasys Mojo

    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

    Stratasys Mojo

    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.

    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).
