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.

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).
0.4µm
Printrbot JR v2: 0.4µm

7. 3D print speed

The speed at which 3d objects are printed, measured in millimeters per second.
1.6mm/s
Fabbster Kit: 600mm/s

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.
100µm
Robox: 0.5µm

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.
100µm
Robox: 2µm

12. maximum creation size

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

13. weight

9.1g
Printrbot JR v2: 9.1g

14. thickness

UP! Plus: 150mm

15. width

267mm
EnvisionTEC Perfactory Micro: 230mm

16. height

356mm
Robox: 240mm

17. volume

28990.86cm³
Da Vinci 3D Printer: cm³

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.

Robox: 0.3mm

19. higher x-axis resolution

The highest possible x-axis resolution as measured in microns.
100µm
Robox: 2µm
