Price comparison

General info

1.weight

8kg

9kg

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 Professional E5
Ultimaker
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.
3.thickness

300mm

357mm

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.height

350mm

388mm

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

300mm

342mm

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

31500cm³

47372.47cm³

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

Components

1.Creates support structures
Hyrel Professional E5
Ultimaker
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 Professional E5
Ultimaker
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 Professional E5
Ultimaker
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

0.4mm

0.4mm

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

40mm/s

300mm/s

The speed at which 3d objects are printed, measured in millimeters per second.
6.Has an automatic platform calibrator

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

Materials

1.Prints in PLA
Hyrel Professional E5
Ultimaker
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 Professional E5
Ultimaker
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

4

1

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

Print sizes

1.layer thickness

100µm

20µm

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

210 x 210 x 205

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

Connectivity

1.has an external memory slot
Hyrel Professional E5
Ultimaker
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.
2.USB ports

1

1

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

Features

1.Is pre-assembled
Hyrel Professional E5
Ultimaker
As the product arrives fully assembled, you do not have to build it from a kit.
