As someone who is passionate for 3D printing, I would want to know what the best 3D printer are out on the market that are affordable but worth what you want them for. I did some research after going through the different types of 3D printers that I would want for business purposes. I currently just purchase an Ender 5 Pro 3D printer made by Creatily. I am happy with my purchase as it works for what I need to do for commissions. Let’s get into it!
Up first on my list that I decide to review after doing some research on what type of 3D printer it is. The Original Prusa i3 MK3S. I have seen an extensive amount of reviews on Prusa 3D printers, as they are quite popular in the community of 3D printing. If you want a 3D printer that can use PETG, ABS, and PLA filament this is the printer for you; if you’d like to be a bit pricier with your 3D printer. The cost of this printer is 999.000 dollars on the Prusa Research website. I would only pay this much for a printer if I am using it for more than fun.
The next 3D printer that I did some research on because I was curious is the Monoprice Mini Delta V2. This printer is quite the printer for how small it is. You can print more types of filament on this printer than the first printer I mentioned. This printer can use PETG, TPU, ABS, and PLA.; I personally think using TPU is fun because it is more of a different type of filament than the rest. This printer can only print 1 color at a time which is alright if you are not using this for creative 3D printing. The frame design on this printer is an open frame which gives it more room to print on. I personally prefer printers that have open frames instead of closed. This printer ranges from 160.00 to 180.00 dollars depending on where you decide to purchase this machine.
The last printer I am going to review is an Original Prusa Mini. This 3D printer is just like the Original Prusa i3 MK3S but, can do a bit more even if it’s a mini. This printer has an open bed which I do prefer for my 3D printers that I use. The printer uses ABS, PLA, Flex, PETG, and ASA; this offers a variety of different types of filament. I would choose this printer if you wanted to use more than PLA and ABS. This is a printer that is a bit on the heavier side so if you wanted to easily move a 3D printer, I would get one that is a bit lighter. This printer runs for about 349.00 dollars if you decided to purchase it on the Prusa Research website.
