Lulzbot Taz 3D vs Ultimaker 2: 19 facts in comparison

1. Has WiFi

The device can connect to WiFi.

2. Has a heated build platform

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. Uses fused deposition modeling (FDM)

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.

4. has an external memory slot

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.

5. maximum operating temperature

The maximum temperature at which the device can perform to the optimal level.
miniFactory 3D Printer: 300°C

6. Prints in PVA

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.

7. width

342mm narrower.
EnvisionTEC Perfactory Micro: 230mm

8. height

157mm shorter.
Robox: 240mm

9. 3D print speed

The speed at which 3d objects are printed, measured in millimeters per second.
Fabbster Kit: 600mm/s

10. maximum creation size

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

230 x 205 x 225

11. Prints in HIPS

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.

12. Prints in wood

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.

13. thickness

131mm thinner.

14. volume

74.15% less body volume.

16. higher y-axis resolution

The highest possible y-axis resolution as measured in microns.
Robox: 2µm

17. Prints in PLA

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.

18. Prints in ABS plastic

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.

19. 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).
