Although we haven’t been able to list down each feature that Bluer offers, we can guarantee we haven’t missed out on any important ones.

Metal Extruder and Decent Print Volume

The Bluer is marketed as a printer coming with a metal extruder which is preferred for stable 3D printing.

It enables you to print with various filaments. So, you essentially get more options for materials to printing parts.

The price at which this printer is offered, the Bluer offers a decent print volume of 230 x 230 x 280 mm.

This makes it larger than the other standard 3D printers in the same price range such as Creality Ender 3 and the Anycubic Mega Zero. It just gives you lots of room to print just about anything.

Filament Sensor

Filament sensors have shown their importance because of which they are plainly as well as simply used in every new 3D printer launched in the market today.

The Bluer too has one. Using this feature you’d be able to make out if you’re using up the dregs of a spool and don’t want your print to fail by miscalculating how much filament is left.

Moreover, if you’re using an older spool and are worried the filament could snap mid-print, this feature will help you like no other.

Automatic Bed Leveling

The Bluer is had automatic bed leveling, so one is thing is guaranteed that there’d be precision in printing the first layer of your prints. And if the first layer is managed, the rest prints pretty smoothly.

So, the overall quality of part printed using this printer will be always higher in Two Trees Bluer than the one printed in others which do not have a bed lever.

Generally and logically you either need a bed leveler or an experienced hand for ensuring your first layer’s safety and precision. An automatic bed leveler decreases the effort that you need to give on 3D printers.

And this results in increasing the overall efficiency of the 3D printing process. Because the lesser the human intervention, the greater the print efficiency.

3.5-inch Color Touch Screen

Two Trees Bluer 3D printer comes with a 3.5-inch color touch screen that helps you interact in the most trending fashion with the printer.

Almost all the functions that the printer can perform, can be controlled using this interface.

It is a great feature to have on a printer especially considering the price range in which Two Trees Bluer is available.

You can control your preheating of the print bed, extrusion, movement leveling, filament loading and unloading as well as many other functions using the touch screen interface.

Resume Printing function

In case you were in the middle of the 3D printing process, if you have to experience an electricity shortage, don’t worry about the progress that you have made in your prints.

All your progress is stored in the printer’s memory because the printer manufacturer has equipped the printer with a resume printing function.

So, even if the electrical power is lost, you will be able to resume 3D printing from the last layer itself that you were 3D printing.

Meaning that printing with Two Trees Bluer, you would have to worry a lot less than printing with another printer that does not have such a feature.

Metal extruder and leveling spring

Extrusion is one of the first phenomenons of the 3D printing process. A good extrusion almost ensures a good level of 3D printing.

For those who do not know, extrusion is the process of taking the filament material to its glass transition temperature and only then allowing the melted filament material to flow continuously and systematically for the extruder of the printer to the print bed.

To make sure this happens nicely, the printer manufacturer has equipped Two Trees Bluer with a metal extruder. This allows you to print with more than one material because it is able to withstand more temperatures.

A leveling spring installed on the corner of the printer makes the complete arrangement more convenient to operate.

The print bed of the printer is based on this spring so, it even assists you while removal of final print from the print bed without any damage.

Double Turbo Fans

Installed in the complete nozzle system of the printer, these fans ensure that the extruder is not overheated.

It helps reduce the overall temperature of the extruder after reaching the glass transition temperature of the concerned filament material. So, not only you get quick heating with the printer, but also quick cooling.

Printing Type/Cost

Bluer is based on FDM 3D printing technology. And normally, the cost of 3D printing a part using this 3D printing technology is the lowest compared to other technologies.

Because unlike other 3D printing technologies this one doesn’t use various types of laser sources or UV light sources to heat, instead of its simple extruder.

Two Trees Bluer allows you to print with PLA, ABS, PETG, and even wooden consumables. Generally in FDM 3D printers, the filament needs to be held by the spool holder, the one that’s present near the print head in Bluer.

This filament spool will be heated till the glass transition temperature of the filament material is achieved. After achieving the same, the liquid filament will be allowed to pass through the nozzle to the print bed.

And then finally, layer after layer, the melted nozzle gets laid on the print bed according to the geometry of the part that’s to be printed.

The last step is cooling which in the case of the printer would be done naturally and not via artificial cooling fans.

However, for cooling of the extruder, there are some fans used by the printer manufacturer which will expedite the complete process of cooling down and make it ready for the next print.
