Notes:
38
1. Dual extruders are included on 3D Systems Cube Gen3, Bukobot 8 v2 Duo, MakerBot Replicator 1, Airwolf HD2x and PowerSpec 3D Pro.
39
2. A dual extruder option is available for Vertex K8400 (+$160), Felix 3.0 (+$160), Taz 4 (+$500) and 3D Systems CubePro (+$600).
40
3. 3D Systems CubePro has the option of 3 extruders for a total price of $4400.
41
4. Printrbot Simple Metal needs a heated bed option to print ABS, which makes the total price $750.
42
5. The open filament column indicates whether the printer manufacturer says filament from other suppliers can be used.
43
6. A dash in the open software column means the printer uses third party software.
44
7. Auto leveling means the printer measures the bed tilt and compensates for it by adjusting coordinates while printing.
45
8. Guided leveling means the printer steps the user through the leveling process using a piece of paper to measure the nozzle height.
46
9. Assisted leveling means the printer measures the bed tilt and tells the user how to turn knobs to level the bed.
47
10. Replicator 1 and 2 are no longer sold by MakerBot but they can be bought on eBay, Amazon and other places.
