General info

1.Uses fused deposition modeling (FDM)
MakerBot Replicator
Object24 Desktop 3D Printer
RepRap Prusa Mendel V2

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.Creates support structures
MakerBot Replicator
Object24 Desktop 3D Printer
RepRap Prusa Mendel V2

The printer will automatically build extra structures to support the item as it is printing. The extra support can then be easily removed.

2.1.75mm filament diameter

RepRap Prusa Mendel V2

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.

3.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 PLA
MakerBot Replicator
Object24 Desktop 3D Printer
RepRap Prusa Mendel V2

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.

2.Prints in ABS plastic
MakerBot Replicator
Object24 Desktop 3D Printer
RepRap Prusa Mendel V2

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.

3.Prints in full color
MakerBot Replicator
Object24 Desktop 3D Printer
RepRap Prusa Mendel V2

Similar to regular 2D printers, this type of 3D printer mixes different colors between cartridges. This process allows the printer to reproduce the color spectrum, therefore allowing you to print in almost any color.

2.has an external memory slot
MakerBot Replicator
Object24 Desktop 3D Printer
RepRap Prusa Mendel V2

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.Has 802.11n WiFi connection
MakerBot Replicator
