General info

1.Uses fused deposition modeling (FDM)
Ultimaker

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

1.3D print speed

300mm/s

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

Best

Fabbster Kit

600mm/s

2.nozzle size

0.4mm

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.

3.number of extruder heads

1

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.

Materials

1.Prints in ABS plastic
Ultimaker

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.

2.Prints in PLA
Ultimaker

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.number of colors per print

1

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

4.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).

Connectivity

1.has an external memory slot
Ultimaker

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.

2.USB ports

1

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