Mbot Cube PVC Colour vs Robox: 21 facts in comparison

1. Has WiFi

The device can connect to WiFi.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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.

5. 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.

7. maximum creation size

This is the biggest size of object that you can print.
200 x 200 x 200
Bits from Bytes RapMan Education: 490 x 500 x 850
210 x 100 x 150

8. width

40mm narrower.
EnvisionTEC Perfactory Micro: 230mm

9. height

160mm shorter.
Robox: 240mm

10. thickness

75mm thinner.
UP! Plus: 150mm

11. USB ports

With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
FABtotum: 4

12. 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.
Robox: 0.3mm

13. 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.
Hyrel Professional E5: 4

14. 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.

15. 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.

16. 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.

17. 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.

18. Is pre-assembled

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

19. 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.

20. 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).
Printrbot JR v2: 0.4µm

21. Prints in full color

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.
