2.Uses fused deposition modeling (FDM)
Leapfrog Creatr Dual Extruder
Stratasys uPrint SE Plus

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
Leapfrog Creatr Dual Extruder
Stratasys uPrint SE Plus

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.Creates support structures
Leapfrog Creatr Dual Extruder
Stratasys uPrint SE Plus

The printer will automatically build extra structures to support the item as it is printing. The extra support can then be easily removed.

3.1.75mm 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.

4.number of extruder heads

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 PVA
Leapfrog Creatr Dual Extruder
Stratasys uPrint SE Plus

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.

2.Prints in PLA
Leapfrog Creatr Dual Extruder
Stratasys uPrint SE Plus

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.

3.number of colors per print

10

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

4.Prints in ABS plastic
Leapfrog Creatr Dual Extruder
Stratasys uPrint SE Plus

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

1.layer thickness

50µm
