For those of you interested in 3D printing something yourself here is the heads up on some of the printers currently on the market.
If you’re an early adopter who is more likely to buy a drone or a smartwatch than a big screen this holiday season, you might also be thinking about a 3D printer. You’ve seen both the hype (print all the things!) and the drawbacks (you can’t print all the things if your printer doesn’t even work) and are still interested. So which 3D printer should you buy?
The answer is complicated. Different printers are better at different things, and there is no perfect all-around machine. For those who have a clear plan in mind for its use, here is a look at five different desktop options that are available right now:
Afinia H480: $1,299
|Price – $1,299|
|Technology – FDM|
|Print volume (inches) – 5 x 5 x 5|
|Print resolution (microns) – 150|
|Heated bed? – Yes|
This is the holy grail of 3D printer categories…
