3D Printer Models
Maximum Build Size & Resolution
Each 3D printer has a different maximum size 3D model that it can print. They also have different resolutions, which determine the level of details of the 3D model.
Software & File Type Compatible
Each 3D printer takes in a 3D model file (.STL). The proprietary driver application for each 3D printer slices the 3D model and creates g-codes, which tell the 3D printer which printer settings to use and where to position its printer heads for printing. For example, 3D model files in .X3G contains only those g-codes in the binary format.
