2. 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.

3. 1.75mm filament diameter

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. maximum operating temperature

The maximum temperature at which the device can perform to the optimal level.

5. 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.

7. higher z-axis resolution

The highest possible z-axis (vertical) resolution as measured in microns.

8. 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.

9. thickness

11. number of colors per print

A single design can be made up using different colored materials simultaneously.

13. height

14. higher x-axis resolution

The highest possible x-axis resolution as measured in microns.

15. higher y-axis resolution

The highest possible y-axis resolution as measured in microns.

16. number of extruder heads

More extruder heads will allow you to use different colours or 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.

17. maximum creation size

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

18. lowest potential operating temperature

The minimum temperature at which the device can perform to the optimal level.

19. USB ports

With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.

20. Is pre-assembled

As the product arrives fully assembled, you do not have to build it from a kit.

21. shipping weight

The shipping weight gives you the information about the all package weight.

22. 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).

23. 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.
