General info

1.Uses fused deposition modeling (FDM)
Printrbot GO 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

1.1.75mm filament diameter
Printrbot GO 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.

2.number of extruder heads

3

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.

3.nozzle size

0.4mm

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.

4.3D print speed

50mm/s

The speed at which 3d objects are printed, measured in millimeters per second.

5.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
Printrbot GO 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.

Print sizes

1.maximum creation size

609 x 305 x 305

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

Connectivity

1.Has WiFi
Printrbot GO v2

The device can connect to WiFi.

2.has an external memory slot
Printrbot GO 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.USB ports

1

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