TOP 5 3D Printer Brands
There is no doubt that the 3D printing revolution is here to stay. The uses of 3D printers are diverse. You can now create 3D versions of CAD designs in the comfort of your home. The cost of owning a good 3D printer is not as expensive as it use to be. Now Print toys, jewelry, architectural models, shoes and more cost effectively in 3D, your imagination is the limit.
I have complied a list of 5 top 3D Printers brands.
Formlabs Form 1
It is exceptionally good. It uses a different technology, Stereolithography, and not Fused Deposition Modeling. It is fully assembled and ready to use. It works amazingly well. It has a small pint area of 4.9 x 4.9 x 6.5 inches this gives out smaller prints though of high quality.
The price is $ 3,299.00
The Makerbot Replicator 2x
It is extremely user friendly and is one of the printers with the highest print resolution available today. The printer is fully assembled, calibrated and ready for use. It has 100 microns resolution with a medium print area of 11.2 x 6.0 x 6.1 inches. It gives multi colored printing making it a great product for prototyping because objects can be printed using more than one color.
The price is $2799.00
Buccaneer 3D Printer
It gives multi colored printing though currently it is not possible to print objects with more than one colour. It is remarkably cheaper compared to other printers. It is also fully assembled, calibrated and ready to be used and works equally very well. It gives a small print area of 150 x 100 x 120 mm.
ORD Bot Hadron 3D Printer (DIY)
It is used in low cost 3D printing and has a medium print area. It is indeed one of the cheapest for a 3D Printer specifically for the DIYers. It has a medium print area of 8.5 x 8.5 x 7.9 inch. It gives a very solid building volume larger than Ord Bot Quantum which is its predecessor.
Price: $400.00 – $600.00
Leapfrog Creatr 3D printer
It aims at bridging the gap between the current state of technology of 3D printers and the future of 3D printing. It is cheaper than both the Form 1 3D printer and Makerbot Replicator 2 without sacrificing quality and accuracy. It is fully assembled and ready to use with 200 microns resolution. It gives medium print area of 9.1 x 10.6 x 8.7 inches. This is a very good size for making quite a wide range of products/objects. It gives multi-colored printing.
