Fablicator vs Printrbot Plus v2: 16 facts in comparison

1. Has a heated build platform

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

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. 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.

5. 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).
100µm

6. 3D print speed

The speed at which 3d objects are printed, measured in millimeters per second.
80mm/s
Fabbster Kit: 600mm/s
1.6mm/s

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.

13. 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.

15. Prints in HIPS

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.
