Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) – The Fablicator uses FFF Technology (sometimes also called Fused Deposited Material or Modeling) to make parts which are strong, durable, and dimensionally accurate. No messy resins or powders mean it is an ideal process for office environments.

• Designed, Manufactured, and Tested in the USA. Each Fablicator is built and tested by our staff to meet rigorous standards of function and quality before shipping.

• No Assembly Required, or Software to Install – The Fablicator arrives to you with a fully integrated Windows operating computer, all of the software has been pre-installed and settings done to begin printing right away. All you need to start making parts is to plug in a mouse, keyboard, monitor and have a 3D model of what you wish to make.

• Design System Capable – Since the Fablicator has a fully functional PC operating on Windows, most standard CAD packages are a simple install on the printer, allowing the design, editing and printing of a part to take place all on one machine.

• Complex Parts – Being able to use same material support and layer heights down to 100 microns allows the Fablicator to create intricate designs not possible with most traditional manufacturing methods.

• Rigid Extruded Aluminum Frame – You can literally stand on it, and it will not warp with changing humidity. The Fablicator is built for reliability, and is at home on the factory floor as well as in the office.

• Precise filament deposition – Carefully engineered mechanics allow the Fablicator to print parts quickly and with excellent surface finish, exceeding that of 3D printers costing much more.

• A Large 7″x7″x7″ Build Area – The Fablicator’s build area is perfectly sized to fit the needs of most users.

• Reusable Build Surface – The Fablicator uses a unique chemically treated glass build surface, which allows parts to stick firmly when printing and release with ease once the platform has cooled. Parts are printed directly on the build surface and do not have any “rafts” to be removed.

• Material Versatility – The Fablicator was designed for ABS, HIPS and PLA. PVA, Nylon, and others have also been successfully printed by some users.

• Static Dissipative Materials – When using static compliant materials, the Fablicator is ideal for making jigs and prototypes used with delicate electronics.

• Large Selection of Printable Material Available For Use – We do not force our users to purchase expensive proprietary filament. The Fablicator uses high quality 1.65-1.85mm filament, which can be purchased from a variety of additional sources.

• Tough Functional Prototypes – Using a variety of materials, the Fablicator is able to build durable 3D printed parts that can be used as visual and functional samples. In many cases, this saves large amounts of time and money wasted on incorrect molds and tooling.
