  1. The most typical configuration is a heated glass platform lined with blue painter's tape or a similar floor. Objects stick to the tape reasonably properly and are simple to take away when accomplished. Heating the platform can forestall the underside corners of objects from curling upward, which is a standard glitch, especially when printing with ABS. A few 3D printers with quantity of} extruders can print objects in two or more colors. Most are dual-extruder fashions, with each extruder being Bike Lock fed a special color of filament. Each material has a special melting point, so use of some unique filaments is proscribed to printers designed for them or ones with software permits you to|that permits you to} control the extruder temperature.
