Printrbot JR v2: 19 facts and highlights

1. 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.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. USB ports

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

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. 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).

7. 3D print speed

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

8. Is pre-assembled

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

9. higher z-axis resolution

The highest possible z-axis (vertical) resolution as measured in microns.

10. 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.

11. higher y-axis resolution

The highest possible y-axis resolution as measured in microns.

12. maximum creation size

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

13. weight

14. thickness

16. height

18. 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.

19. higher x-axis resolution

The highest possible x-axis resolution as measured in microns.
