So, you already did your homework on 3D printers and you’re ready to take it to the next step? If you have in mind the kind of 3D printer you want to own, it’s just a matter of finding the right one which fits all your requirements. But just because the most difficult part of the quest has been covered, it doesn’t mean that checking reviews one by one and comparing the products isn’t time consuming. Since time is precious and you have to use it wisely, I gave you a helpful hand with this.
I put up a comparison table that you can find below, in which I listed the main characteristics of every 3D printer I reviewed, so that you don’t have to go through the articles and figure out by yourself which has what. Everything is at a glance, but just in case, I added links to Amazon and the whole reviews as well so that you don’t miss a thing.
