Phrozen Transform 3D Printer

Phrozen Transform 3D Printer

This resin-based 3D printer builds up layers of liquid polymer for super smooth models. What makes it truly special is its 13.3″ LCD panel, which allows for builds as large as 29.2 x 16.5 x 40 cm (11.5 x 6.5 x 15.75″). It’s also available with dual 5.5″ panels for printing two models at once.

Da Vinci Color Mini 3D Printer

Da Vinci Color Mini 3D Printer

XYZ Printing has developed a smaller and more affordable version of its da Vinci full color 3D printer. Similar to its predecessor, the da Vinci Color Mini coats its special absorbent PLA filament with ink from its CMY cartridges as it prints each layer.

Creality CR-10 3D Printer

Creality CR-10 3D Printer

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.

Da Vinci Color Inkjet 3D Printer

Da Vinci Color Inkjet 3D Printer

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.

How SLA 3D Printers Work

How SLA 3D Printers Work

Stereolithography or SLA 3D printers are great for making small, smooth and highly detailed objects. Bill the Engineer Guy breaks down the components of an SLA DLP 3D printer to explain how it works in his typically engaging and accessible approach.

SparkMaker SLA 3D Printer

SparkMaker SLA 3D Printer

Possibly the most affordable stereolithography 3D printer you can get. The SparkMaker can print objects up to 4″ x 2.2″ x 5″ with an incredibly smooth finish. It works with five types of resins that you can color with its CMYK+W color pastes.

ClayXYZ 3D Printer

ClayXYZ 3D Printer

While the majority of 3D printers melt plastic filament, this unique printer uses modeling clay as its medium, resulting in ceramic creations which would be difficult to sculpt by hand. If you already have an FDM 3D printer, you can purchase the extruder only for $399.

Overlord ProPlus 3D Printer

Overlord ProPlus 3D Printer

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

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.

da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3-in-1 3D Printer

da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3-in-1 3D Printer

da Vinci’s versatile 3D printer not only outputs ABS & PLA objects on a heated bed, but it can do 3D scans, and can be upgraded with an $199 laser engraver for cutting designs into leather, cardboard, wood and plastic. A junior model for beginners is also in the works.
