Fablicator vs Zeepro Zim: 23 facts in comparison

1. 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.
Zeepro Zim
27% have it

2. Has WiFi

The device can connect to WiFi.
Zeepro Zim
20% have it

3. Has plug and play feature

The device is set up and ready to be used with the included software.
Zeepro Zim
12% have it

4. 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.

5. 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.

6. 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.

7. 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.

8. number of colors per print

A single design can be made up using different colored materials simultaneously.
Da Vinci 3D Printer: 12

9. 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.

10. 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).
Printrbot JR v2: 0.4µm

11. 3D print speed

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

12. thickness

115mm thinner.
UP! Plus: 150mm

13. USB ports

With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
FABtotum: 4

14. 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.
Hyrel Professional E5: 4

15. maximum creation size

This is the biggest size of object that you can print.

16. 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.

17. 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.

18. Is pre-assembled

As the product arrives fully assembled, you do not have to build it from a kit.
Zeepro Zim
51% have it

19. 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.
Robox: 0.3mm

20. weight

10.93kg lighter.
Printrbot JR v2: 9.1g

21. Prints in PVA

Polyvinyl Acetate is another form of plastic used in 3d printing similar to ABS. It can be used to build support structures for other prints, as it can then be dissolved leaving no marks.

22. height

115mm shorter.
Robox: 240mm

23. width

178mm narrower.
