MendelMax 1.5 + Hardware Kit: 14 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.

4. 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.

5. 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.

6. 3D print speed

The speed at which 3d objects are printed, measured in millimeters per second.
150mm/s
Fabbster Kit: 600mm/s

7. higher x-axis resolution

The highest possible x-axis resolution as measured in microns.
12.50µm
Robox: 2µm

8. maximum creation size

This is the biggest size of object that you can print.
230 x 310 x 225
Bits from Bytes RapMan Education: 609 x 500 x 850

9. 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.
