Laying their specific towards the sticking of printing material over the heat bed, the manufacturers of this company has used a build surface made of epoxy and glass which you are surely not going to find in any other printer than this one. 

What this material would allow you to do is, better adhesion when laying the initial line of thermoplastic that you decide to 3D print your parts and functional prototypes with. Apart from that the frame of the body is open, which allows the air to cool down the temperature of the parts and functional prototypes you have just made using this 3D printer.

If you are someone who wishes to learn 3D printing from scratch without the use of any touch screen interface and the technology that is available today, this printer is surely for you. The whole look of the printer is classic, it comes assembled, has a manageable software that you can use to upload your files on to the printer. Beginners who are sure of their longterm future with the technology, this printer is for them specially.
