General info

1.Uses fused deposition modeling (FDM)
Lulzbot Taz 3D
Printrbot GO v2
The Future is 3D Glacier Steel

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

Printrbot GO v2
The Future is 3D Glacier Steel

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
Lulzbot Taz 3D
Printrbot GO v2
The Future is 3D Glacier Steel

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 Future is 3D Glacier Steel

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.Has an automatic platform calibrator

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 wood
Lulzbot Taz 3D
Printrbot GO v2
The Future is 3D Glacier Steel

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.

2.Prints in HIPS
Lulzbot Taz 3D
Printrbot GO v2
The Future is 3D Glacier Steel

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.

3.Prints in PVA

Printrbot GO v2
The Future is 3D Glacier Steel

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.

4.Prints in PLA

Printrbot GO v2
The Future is 3D Glacier Steel

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.

5.Prints in ABS plastic
Lulzbot Taz 3D
Printrbot GO v2
The Future is 3D Glacier Steel

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.
