What is the biggest size object that I can print?
The Root and Root Plus have a maximum print size of 6” x 6” x 5.5”
What type of materials can I print with?
Root: PLA and flexible.
Root Plus: flexible, PLA, ABS, PA, PC, HIPS, PVA, and wood
Can I print directly on the glass?
We recommend using the sheets of masking tape (which are included with your purchase) to cover the glass. Once covering the glass, make sure that all four clips are on tightly to hold the glass in place on the bed. For better adhesion, we recommend applying a thin layer of glue stick to make raftless printing much easier.
How many microns will the layers on my 3D printed model be?
The GP3D Root and Root Plus have the ability to print at 200-300 microns. We will also have the ability to print at 100 microns in the near future.
When will we have the ability to print at 100 microns?
Currently, our printers have the ability to print at 200 to 300 microns (0.2 to 0.3mm.) We are working on a software update that will allow us to print at 100 microns (0.1mm).
What operating systems do GP3D printers run on?
Germinate software works on Windows OS (Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1, and Windows 10.)
What software do GP3D printers come with?
GP3D printers come with Germinate 1.0 (root) and Germinate 1.1 (root plus).
Can I fully design projects with it too?
No – The Germinate software is designed to accept stl files. It slices it into layers and creates a gcode file to allow you to print the item.
The print job did not come out correctly what do I do?
In order to make sure your print job comes out perfectly, make sure that you calibrate your printer and level the bed. Once calibrated, make sure that the temperature of the extruder head is set to 220-230 for PLA.
