Components

1.Has a heated build platform
Leapfrog Creatr
Mcor Iris

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
Leapfrog Creatr
Mcor Iris

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.

Materials

1.Prints in ABS plastic
Leapfrog Creatr
Mcor Iris

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.

2.Prints in PVA
Leapfrog Creatr
Mcor Iris

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.

3.Prints in full color
Leapfrog Creatr
Mcor Iris

Similar to regular 2D printers, this type of 3D printer mixes different colors between cartridges. This process allows the printer to reproduce the color spectrum, therefore allowing you to print in almost any color.

4.Prints in paper
Leapfrog Creatr
Mcor Iris

The printer is able to print in paper. 3D printing in paper involves an additive process whereby a laser cuts each layer of paper into the correct shape to create the final model. Paper 3D printed objects have a similar consistency to wood.

5.Prints in PLA
Leapfrog Creatr
Mcor Iris

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.

Print sizes

1.layer thickness

50µm

100µm

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).

Connectivity

1.has an external memory slot
Leapfrog Creatr
Mcor Iris

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.
