General info

1.weight

11.5kg

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
2.width

590mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
The gross weight of the product when packaged, including all wrapping, and boxing.

Components

1.1.75mm filament diameter
MakerBot Replicator 2
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.
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.
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 PLA
MakerBot Replicator 2
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.
A single design can be made up using different colored materials simultaneously.

Print sizes

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).
2.maximum creation size

153 x 285 x 155null

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

Connectivity

1.has an external memory slot
MakerBot Replicator 2
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.
With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
