How Your Wanhao Duplicator 4S Printer Works

The Wanhao Duplicator 4S printer is designed to make solid 3D objects out of ABS, PL and PVA filament. Your 3D design files are translated into instructions for the wanhao duplicator using a USB cable or SD card.

Once your files are translated into the instructions the printer can read the printer will calibrate itself, heats the filament and squeezes it through the nozzle creating a 3D solid object of the file layer by layer. Once finished you have a 3D model to display or use. This type of duplication is known as Fuse filament fabrication.
