The printer will automatically build extra structures to support the item as it is printing. The extra support can then be easily removed.
The speed at which 3d objects are printed, measured in millimeters per second.
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.
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.

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.
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).
