Price comparison

General info

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
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.
We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
4.width

366mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
6.volume

49027.9cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.

Components

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.
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.
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.
This feature saves time and effort in terms of maintenance, however the build platform itself still needs to be manually levelled.
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 speed at which 3d objects are printed, measured in millimeters per second.

Materials

1.Prints in PLA
FABtotum
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.
2.Prints in HIPS
FABtotum
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.
3.Prints in wood
FABtotum
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.
A single design can be made up using different colored materials simultaneously.
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.

Print sizes

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).
2.maximum creation size

242 x 214 x 236null

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

Connectivity

1.supports Wi-Fi
FABtotum
The device can connect to Wi-Fi.
Wi-Fi 4 (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.
With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.

Features

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