General info

1.weight

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

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.maximum operating temperature

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The maximum temperature at which the device can perform to the optimal level.
Printers based on stereolithography (SLA) use a tank of liquid photopolymer resin and a high-powered light source, which is used to harden the material in the tank, one cross section at a time, until the object is created. Printers based on SLA usually have high printing speeds and can produce objects with a smooth finish.
Printers based on selective laser sintering (SLS) use a powerful laser to heat and fuse plastic, metal or ceramic powder particles together, layer-by-layer, to form a solid model. The main advantage of SLS printing is that it can produce objects with complex geometries, using a wide variety of materials.
The height represents the vertical dimension of the product.
7.width

370mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product.
The thickness (or depth) of the product.
9.volume

30192cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.

Components

The printer will automatically build extra structures to support the item as it is printing. The extra support can then be easily removed.
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.
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.
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.
5.3D print speed

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The speed at which 3d objects are printed, measured in millimeters per second.
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.
This feature saves time and effort in terms of maintenance, however the build platform itself still needs to be manually levelled.
Hollow mode will build the item quickly and using less material. This will allow you to print quick prototypes of your designs before printing a solid model i.e for presentational designs rather than functional solid ones.

Materials

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.
Similar to regular 2D printers, this type of 3D printer mixes different colors between cartridges. This process allows the printer to reproduce the color spectrum, therefore allowing you to print in almost any color.
The printer is able to print in High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS). HIPS is similar to ABS plastic, but uses different solvents (limonene rather than acetone). HIPS is easy to paint and glue.
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.
Polyvinyl Acetate is another form of plastic used in 3d printing similar to ABS. It can be used to build support structures for other prints, as it can then be dissolved leaving no marks.
The printer is able to print in paper. 3D printing in paper involves an additive process whereby a laser cuts each layer of paper into the correct shape to create the final model. Paper 3D printed objects have a similar consistency to wood.
The printer is able to print in wood. This typically involves printing using a mixture of wood particles and a binding agent, which dries as solid wood.
8.number of colors per print

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

A single design can be made up using different colored materials simultaneously.

Print sizes

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).
2.maximum creation size

210 x 100 x 150null

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

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

This is the smallest size of object you could print with the printer, in terms of volume (cm³).
The highest possible x-axis resolution, measured in microns.
The highest possible y-axis resolution as measured in microns.
The highest possible z-axis resolution as measured in microns.

Connectivity

The device can connect to Wi-Fi.
Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n) is a wireless standard released in 2009. It has faster transfer rates and improved security compared to its predecessors – a, b, and g.
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.
802.11ac wireless works on the 5GHz frequency range. It offers higher transfer rates, improved reliability, and improved power consumption. It provides advantages for gaming and HD video streaming.
With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.

Features

The device is set up and ready to be used with the included software.
You can operate the device easily, by pressing the screen with your fingers.
3.audible noise

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

Audible noise is the noise that a device produces while in operation. Reduced audible noise improves quality.
4.idle noise level

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The level of noise when it is not in use.
5.included designs

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

With 3D designs already installed on the printer, you can start printing straight away.
Cloud compatibility allows you to control the operation of the device remotely using your smartphone, tablet or other mobile internet devices.
As the product arrives fully assembled, you do not have to build it from a kit.
8.operating power consumption

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

How much power the device consumes when it's switched on.
