Maximum size1: PLA, PP – 200 x 200 x 180 mm
ABS, HIPS, Z-ULTRAT, PETG – 200 x 200 x 185 mm
Minimal wall thickness: 0,8 mm
Minimum detail size2: 0,4 mm
Layer height: 0,1 – 0,3 mm
1 largest model size printed as one piece, larger models are required to be printed as separate parts but they can easily be connected
2 details and structures of models smaller than the minimum details size can be wrongly portrayed or get lost entirely
The final model can be edited further to achieve smooth surface. All kinds of modeling or acrylic sealant sprays are effective in sealing.
Colouring is suitable when the base is basic paint for plastic surfaces and afterwards acrylic spray paint.
For bonding, epoxy glue or cyanocrylate (superglue) is used. ABS can be also glued by acetone, in which it can be dissolved.
FDM (Fused deposition modeling) technology prints models by layering thin layers of material made from melted plastic fibres. This creates a firm structure with laminated surface.
