Monoprice MP Select Mini
Starting from $220, the MP Select Mini is a very low cost 3D printer. Despite it’s small build volume of 12 x 12 x 12 cm, it comes packed with features more commonly found on more expensive 3D Printers such as an insulated heated build plate and WIFI connectivity. The only downsides to this printer are the noise it makes whilst printing and it’s slow print speed of 55 mm/s.
The FlashForge Finder comes fully assembled out of the box and now with its assisted leveling system, very few tweaks are needed before starting prints. Features include a touchscreen panel, filament-run-out detection, and 2nd Generation Wi-Fi connectivity.
Original Prusa i3 MK2S Kit
The Original i3 MK2S is the second version of the popular i3 MK2, upgradable 3D printer from Josef Prusa that includes updated hardware including a new probe and rods. All parts of this 3D printer are Open Source and are part of the RepRap project. This printer comes equipped with a heatbed with cold corners compensation for warpless 3D printing from a variety of materials ranging from PLA, ABS, PET, HIPS to Nylon, Bamboofill, ASA and Polycarbonates.
Formlabs Form 2
An excellent enthusiast 3D printer.The Formlabs Form 2 is an excellent 3D printer for enthusiasts who don’t mind paying extra to get the very best print quality. It’s a beautifully-designed 3D printer, and can be connected to PCs via USB, Wi-Fi and Ethernet. It doesn’t quite have the print reliability of the Ultimaker 2+, but the print quality more than makes up for a few errors.
M3D Micro 3D Printer
The best 3D printer for beginners.The M3D Micro 3D Printer is an excellent 3D printer for beginners. Its low price means you’re not investing lots of money if you’re not entirely sure 3D printing is for you, while the compact, cube, design means it can be easily placed within the home or office. It looks good, and is impressively quiet when in use. The print quality isn’t the best, however, and it is only able to make small models (not too surprising, considering the diminutive size). However, if you’re looking for your first 3D printer, this is an excellent choice.
FlashForge Creator Pro 2017
A great mid-range 3D printer.The FlashForge Creator Pro 2017 is the best 3D printer that sits between budget 3D printers and expensive professional models. It’s a lot cheaper than pro models, though it maintains the build quality and reliability that you’d come to expect from a professional 3D printer. It’s not quite as cheap as the budget and beginner models in this list, but it offers greater accuracy when printing 3D models. It is a tad noisy in use, however.
