Besides speed, the big limitation of most cheap 3D printers is the size of the build area. Not so with the Creality CR-10, which can output massive, high quality PLA models – up to 300 x 300 x 400mm (11.8 x 11.8 x 15.75″), on the cheap. Also available on Amazon for about $100 more.

The da Vinci Color can print objects with fully colored surfaces. It can print 16 million colors, thanks to its proprietary process that uses CMYK ink along with PLA or PETG filament. While not good enough to make finished products, it’s great for creating prototypes.

$499+  Pledge Comment

DFRobot’s OverLord ProPlus by DreamMaker printer outputs detailed models from PLA or ABS thanks to a great ventilation system and a heated bed. It’s easy to use, quiet, prints items up to 10.2″ tall, and is also a steal while it’s still on Indiegogo. Full review on Technabob.

RoVa4D 3D Printer

RoVa4D 3D Printer
~$3500  Pledge Comment

No, the RoVa4D isn’t capable of printing in four dimensions, but it still does something pretty slick. It can print objects in full color by blending multiple filament colors through a single print head. It’s unclear how precise color areas can be so keep that in mind.
