General info

1.Uses fused deposition modeling (FDM)
FABtotum
Lulzbot AO-101

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
FABtotum
Lulzbot AO-101

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.

2.1.75mm filament diameter
FABtotum
Lulzbot AO-101

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.

3.nozzle size

0.35mm

0.5mm

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.

4.Has an automatic platform calibrator
FABtotum
Lulzbot AO-101

This feature saves time and effort in terms of maintenance, however the build platform itself still needs to be manually levelled.

5.number of extruder heads

1

1

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
FABtotum
Lulzbot AO-101

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
FABtotum
Lulzbot AO-101

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
FABtotum
Lulzbot AO-101

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
FABtotum
Lulzbot AO-101

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.

Connectivity

1.Has WiFi
FABtotum

The device can connect to WiFi.

2.has an external memory slot
FABtotum
Lulzbot AO-101

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.

3.Has 802.11n WiFi connection
FABtotum
Lulzbot AO-101

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.
