Heat beds are used because they dramatically improve print quality by keeping the extruded plastic warm and thus preventing warping. Warping is a common condition caused by plastic on the edges of the part cooling down at an uneven rate when compared to the plastic inside of the part.

Layer resolution is the material stacking height for additive manufacturing i.e. the distance between two consecutive layers. Print accuracy is the degree to which the result of a measurement conforms to the value in the 3D design.
