Makemendel RapidBot 3.0 Kit: 17 facts and highlights

1. 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.

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. 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.

4. maximum creation size

This is the biggest size of object that you can print.
220 x 220 x 165
Bits from Bytes RapMan Education: 490 x 500 x 850

5. 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).
100µm
Printrbot JR v2: 0.4µm

6. 3D print speed

The speed at which 3d objects are printed, measured in millimeters per second.
60mm/s
Fabbster Kit: 600mm/s

7. weight

12kg
Printrbot JR v2: 9.1g

8. thickness

350mm
UP! Plus: 150mm

9. power consumption operation

How much power the device consumes when it's switched on.
450W
Bits from Bytes RapMan Education: 60W

10. height

370mm
Robox: 240mm

11. higher z-axis resolution

The highest possible z-axis (vertical) resolution as measured in microns.
270µm
Robox: 0.5µm

12. 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.

14. nozzle size

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.
0.4mm
Robox: 0.3mm

15. number of extruder heads

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.
