General info

1.weight

33.56kg

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
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.
3.width

914mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.

Components

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.
2.1.75mm 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.
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.
The speed at which 3d objects are printed, measured in millimeters per second.
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 305null

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

Connectivity

1.supports Wi-Fi
Printrbot GO v2
The device can connect to Wi-Fi.
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.
With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
