Price comparison

General info

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.width

342mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
5.volume

47372.47cm³

Volume is the quantity of three-dimensional space enclosed by the product's chassis or, in simpler terms, the space the product occupies.
The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.

Components

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

Materials

1.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.
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.
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 210 x 205null

This is the biggest size of object that you can print.
The highest possible y-axis resolution as measured in microns.
The highest possible x-axis resolution, measured in microns.

Connectivity

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

Features

1.Is pre-assembled
Ultimaker
As the product arrives fully assembled, you do not have to build it from a kit.
