    3D Printer

    What is the Best 3D printer of your choice?

    That depends on how much are you willing to spend on a 3d printer? I think that BCN3D Sigma is really great but it is very expansive. I am using this one Original Prusa i3 MK2 and I am very pleased with it so far.

    My choice would be a leapfrog bolt. Like a bnc sigma but bigger, prettier and fully enclosed :-)

    I'm pretty sure blue king is a spammer of some kind - just haven't worked out his angle yet.

    Hi. Nowadays 3D printing technology is very much popular in every industry. Due to the high demand and precision it takes to build these intricate machines. Some 3d printers are:
    1. Peachy Printer
    2. MakiBox
    3. Printrbot
    4. Phoenix 3D Printer
    5. Romscraj
    6. The Buccaneer
    7. Solidoodle
    8. RigidBot
    9. RoBo
    10. Deezmaker Bukito Mini
    According to me I took service from Iannone 3D, which uses in-house Stratasys Fortus printers as well as our network of large-envelope printers for 3D Printing Service in the New Jersey area. Thanks.

    Ultimaker 3 has unprecedented quality, also for the dual extruder this is the best FFF machine.
    My second choice is the new BCN3D Sigma. UM2 comes in third.

    Lulzbot TAZ printers are also great but not easily available in Europe.

    I am currently researching the Wanhao Duplicator 5s mini, it seems the best value for money but the cons are:
    - Proprietary nozzles and software
    - Some machines come with slight defects and they do not accept returns
    - Bowden system filament extruder does not feed very well without modifications

    For those preferring 1.75mm filament, look at the Formbot T-Rex with an incredible build size and great quality.

    Speaking in terms of best value for money, the Duplicator 5s Mini is the best 3D printer at the moment in my experience.
    I unboxed it yesterday, getting it from the front yard to the studio took about 10 minutes, then in another 20 it was up and running.
    So far I ran tests with a low-poly model, organic sculpture, a mechanical part and a flexible set of parts, in all four it excels.

    Make sure to install stable releases of firmware, also there is software to convert gcode to the proprietary idea (.i) format Wanhao works with.
    The Wanhao maker slicer produces great results and will generally have all the settings available you need.
