The CoLiDo Range of 3D printers, pens and filament is one of the most easy to use, reliable and cost effective 3D Printer Ranges currently available on the market. Now you have the power to create your own embellishments, shapes, figures, models, gifts and more, all from the comfort of your own home. There are so many creative possibilities that await you!
All the answers found here about your printer.
Support offline printing by using an SD card.
The required time depends on the object size and resolution level. The higher the resolution level, the slower printing speed. The printer is configured with different print setting options: Best, Standard & Draft. After you select the printing setting to slice, the repetier software will show the needed time.
CoLiDo 3D printers use FDM print technology (Fused Deposition Modeling). The printer will heat up and melt the plastic filament and push it out from nozzle to make a solid object layer by layer. This is a rapid prototyping technology with low costs, and is the most suitable moulding technology for wide use currently.
It depends on if the printer uses an extrusion process. Like Printrite’s CoLiDo Desktop 3D printer, they melt the filament and extrude it out.
Not all 3D printer are FDM based. There are different technologies (EB,DMLS,EBM etc.). FDM technology is the common use in many fields, such as industrial, domestic and hobbyist, clothing, medical, education, house hold use, etc.
100 MICRONS (±0.1mm).
Nozzle diameter is 0.4mm.
Not at all, the repetier software can adjust the printing precision.
Yes this is correct. Also, the filament quality is very important in order to have a good and reliable print output.
The outlook is similar since both CoLiDo and some other 3D printers use the industry reliable frame/chassis.
Currently CoLiDo printer just prints one colour in one nozzle. But it can print more colour in different layers by using the “Pause” and “Resume” functions to replace filament.
Yes, CoLiDo 3D printer has CE & FCC certification which can be exported.
Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10.
The printer can read STL and GCO files.
Running speed means the flow of extruded filament.
Yes, we can rank the printer by printing speed.
No, two nozzles will not print at the same time.
Repetier-Host. It's located inside the SD card (or can be download from http://www.colido.com/download/software/CoLiDo-RepetierHost-2_0_1-Windows.zip). Customers can upload their test files on the software. This software can edit the size and direction of the model, and can also add the support design, etc. The main function of Repetier is to convert STL files to the identifiable code of the printer (G-code/CGO file).
The required time depends on the object size and infill level. The higher the infill level, the slower printing speed. The printer is configured with different print setting options: Best, Standard & Draft. After you select the printing setting to slice, the repetier software will show the needed time.
The printer nozzle can print ~1500h. (You can check the print time from LCD Display “Control” menu – “Printer RunPrama”.) CoLiDo Printer Nozzle is already available to buy. Users can purchase and replace it themselves with our replacement video.
3D printing has many applications in schools, universities, engineering/manufacturing, medical, architecture, and even for people who are hobbyists.
.STL or .OBJ
Yes. You can make the objects firmer by increasing the infill percentage in Slic3r’s configuration.
You can use any CAD or CAM software which can save the object as a .STL file. Some common pieces of software to use are TinkerCAD and AutoDesk Fusion 360
Use PLA and ABS filaments which have a diameter of 1.75mm and high accuracy (±0.03). Using the PR printer together with PR’s PLA/ABS filaments, you can reach the best print. It is compatible with other brand of 3D printers, such as Makerbot R2/R2X, FlashForge Creator/ CreatorX, etc. Compact only prints PLA.
PLA: 1.75+/-0.03mm, ABS 1.75+/-0.05mm.
It is difficult to distinguish ABS and PLA if only judge is on the appearance. ABS is matt and PLA is very glossy. Once PLA is heated up ~200°C, it can be extruded easily but ABS cannot. ABS need heat up to 220°C to be extruded. If the temperature is higher, there bubbles will appear on PLA, or PLA will be easily carbonised. If the nozzle is being blocked, ABS will have a bad smell but PLA will not.
Apply for the 3D printer with FDM based technology, such as Reprap, MakerBot, Afinia and UP! Printers, etc. Also, the filament diameter should be 1.75mm and the extruder temperature should be 190-250°C.
They are all widely used in the mechanical, automobile, electrical , electronic instruments, meters textile and construction industries. For example:
It depends on the object's shape and printing settings, such as layer height and infill density. After converting the STL file to a GCO file in the Repetier-Host software, customers can see the needed filament usage (Length) of printing the object at the end of the g-code command or “Show in Log”. For example, 1kg of filament can print roughtly 9 figures; a 7*5*5cm 3D model. Customers can evaluate whether the actual fliament length is enough to meet the needed filament length.
Up to 200C
Yes, you can use the regular mediums you use as a crafter.
For new users, we do not suggest adjusting the parameter during printing. For advanced users, you can push the knob to select “Control” to adjust the Nozzle or Bed temperature and printing speed during printing.
Refer to chapters 6.2~6.4 in user manual. Print one of the test files on SD Card supplied with printer.
The Repetier-Host software of the printer has standard settings for selecting to use directly.
After converting the STL file to a GCO file in the Repetier-Host software, customers can see the needed filament usage (Length) of printing the object at the end of the g-code command or “Show in Log”. Customers can evaluate whether the actual filament length is enough to meet the needed filament length.
You can refer to chapter 6.5.1 in user manual. Once the nozzle has reached the setting temperature, please press the printer head arm and at the same time pull on the filament to extract it from the nozzle.
Refer to the label on the printer. Clean the nozzle using the long allen key in the accessory pack.
Remove the filament from the printer head (refer to chapter 6.5.1 in user manual), cut the filament tip flat, and re-load it into the printer head. Make sure that the filament is properly inserted into the nozzle receiving port (for guidance on how to do this, please refer to chapter 5.8 in the user manual).
This issue may be because the filament is not properly inserted into the nozzle. Please unload the filament, cut the end of the filament flat, and re-load it into the printer head (for guidance on how to do this, please refer to chapter 5.8 in the user manual).
If the issue is not resolved after completing the above, it may be caused by a short length of the filament blocked in the nozzle from the last time the printer was used. Please refer to chapter 6.5.1 in the user manual. Allow the nozzle to heat up and load new filament into the machine – this should push the blocked filament out.
Please wait a few minutes for the platform and your 3D creation to cool down, then remove the 3D print. If the 3D print is still stuck to the platform, carefully remove by sliding a thin sheet of metal between the 3D print and the platform.
Please check if the files saved on the SD card are in .GCO format. If the file is not .GCO format, please convert it to .GCO format through Repetier-Host software. (For guidance on how to do this, please refer to chapter 7.3 in the user manual.)
Refer to chapter 5.10 in the user manual. Ensure the printer is connected to a computer with the cable and turn on. Refer to chapter 7.2 in user manual; ensure the selections of the COM port in the printer settings are right.
When loading an STL file to Repetier software, the object will be shown all in red in the 3D view window; this means that the file can be sliced. If the object shows some red and some green, it means the object has an unclosed line or surface and cannot be sliced. If the object is shown in blue, it means the object is not in the printing area correctly or is exceeding the printing area.
If you do not use the the filament for a long time, keep your filament spool or cartridge in a closed plastic bag to avoid the filament absorbing the moisture in the air.
Yes, much like a standard printer, you can set the printer to print a draft copy so you can see the size and scale. You use much less filament this way.
Yes you can if you have created the file. If you haven’t created the file, please check the licence.
