How to Compare 3D Printers

If you are in the market for a new desktop 3D printer, there are some characteristics you might want to consider when buying a 3D printer.

Price

Purchase price is always a good starting point, especially when you have a budget. If you are looking for a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) 3D printer kit, price ranges between $500 to $800. Pre-assembled 3D printers can cost between $1,000 to $2,500.

Ease of Use

When it comes to 3D hardware interface and 3D software controls, you definitely want to consider buying a platform that is easy to setup and comes with a straightforward and easy to follow manual.

Printing Speed

With printing speed, you might want to consider two types of print speed. First, how fast can the hot-end lay down the 3D material? Second, how fast does the hot-end move to different print areas without laying down 3D material?

Print Quality

How close will the printed 3d object resemble my design? To answer this question, it is helpful to compare identical parts created by various 3D printers. You may see noticeable differences in print resoultion among different 3D printers.

Print Volume

Print volume is important especially if you want to print large parts without having to literally cut your print job in half. With a large print volume, you can not only build large parts but also different parts at once.

Added Value

Since not all 3D printers are built the same, you definitely want to consider additional features, such as the ability to print different 3D material types and sizes.
