Printrbot Plus v2: 14 facts and highlights

1. 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.

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.

3. has an external memory slot

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.

4. 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).

5. USB ports

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

6. Is pre-assembled

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

7. 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.

8. 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.

9. maximum creation size

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

10. 3D print speed

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

11. weight

13. height

14. 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.
