    3D Printing on a Budget

    Hey everyone,

    If you're looking for 3D printers for your classroom and are on a budget, there is a slew of 3D printers currently on sale from XYZprinting:

    The da Vinci miniMaker: $179
    The da Vinci Jr. Pro: $299
    The da Vinci 1.0 Pro: $499
    The da Vinci Pro 3-in-1: $599
    The Nobel 1.0: $899

    All the ones labeled "Pro" are compatible with 3rd party resins and the Nobel 1.0 is an SLA printer that is now compatible with 3rd party resins.

    Hope this helps!

    We have a da Vinci xyz that takes a proprietary cartridge -- ripped that off and flashed it; install RepetierHost. Works fine.

    All are good choices, just make sure its enclosed, and stick to PLA for simplicity. The da Vinci Jr. Pro would be a good choice that falls in the middle. I'm not sure a SLA printer would be best for a school, at least not lower grades. With the FDM printers, just be careful because the hot-end can burn you so keep the door closed.
