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.
2.Uses fused deposition modeling (FDM)
Hyrel Hobbyist E2
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.


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.
5.warranty period


When covered under the manufacturer’s warranty it is possible to get a replacement in the case of a malfunction.


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.


1.Creates support structures
Hyrel Hobbyist E2
The printer will automatically build extra structures to support the item as it is printing. The extra support can then be easily removed.
2.Has a heated build platform
Hyrel Hobbyist E2
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.
3.1.75mm filament diameter
Hyrel Hobbyist E2
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.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.
5.3D print speed


The speed at which 3d objects are printed, measured in millimeters per second.
6.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.


1.Prints in PLA
Hyrel Hobbyist E2
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 ABS plastic
Hyrel Hobbyist E2
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.number of colors per print


A single design can be made up using different colored materials simultaneously.

Print sizes

1.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).
2.maximum creation size

200 x 200 x 200

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


1.USB ports


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


1.Is pre-assembled
Hyrel Hobbyist E2
As the product arrives fully assembled, you do not have to build it from a kit.
