General info

1.Uses fused deposition modeling (FDM)
Robox

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.

Components

1.Has a heated build platform
Robox

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.Has an automatic platform calibrator
Robox

This feature saves time and effort in terms of maintenance, however the build platform itself still needs to be manually levelled.

3.number of extruder heads

2

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.

4.nozzle size

0.3mm

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.

Materials

1.Prints in HIPS
Robox

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.

2.Prints in PLA
Robox

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.

3.Prints in ABS plastic
Robox

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.

4.Prints in PVA
Robox

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.

5.Prints in full color
Robox

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.

Print sizes

1.layer thickness

20µm

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).
