    hi all, I am new here... well I need help to choose the right 3dprinter for me...I need it to print small things, usually cylinders which are 5cm long and 1cm high... the only problem is that the finish should be very glossy (which I think I can achieve with sandpapering and spraying)I have downloaded Fusion 360 and I am making a small progress for now to make my design but I dont know which printer should I use, if you guys can recommend..thanks

    Lol, I'm flattered but please don't copy-paste my posts.

    On topic, the most important thing is to have a plan for your 3D printer and decide based on that.

    At this moment I would recommend going with a trusted brand that produces printers that have proved to last for years.
    I.e. not several of the Chinese brands but businesses with more reliable development processes (even if components are sourced from China)
    Reason is that my two Wanhao 5s machines have both failed last year in the electronics department.

    So..

    - The Prusa i3 is awesome, it's a true classic of the 3D printer world and so versatile.

    - Ultimaker is a great brand, but IMO they are overpricing the product

    - BCN3D Sigma, top-of-the-line choice

    - Lulzbot

    - Possibly the Creality (Chinese), Flashforge or Monoprice on recommendations of C.A.

    Most of all, don't expect it to be a plug-n-play deal, it requires developing some expertise.

    Lightbulb 3D Printer Cost and Beginners Guide

    Dear Ben2900When its come to best 3d printer. Most of them are good. Now in improved level. If you are a starting up or to find out the direction then I would suggest just do the take off mode. Early stage 3d printers. Better you can research on google, however, no one guarantee you what exactly you need to buy. So I would suggest start with Beginners level then moderated 3d printer will help you out with out spending more. There are lots of aspect need to think about before you start buying 3d printers. So I would suggest read this article and choose from it. I don't think you need to spend in one go $1000. Learn and move forward is best practice. how much 3d printer cost?

    I do not know your usage needs to be able to advise you on the machine that suits your needs as well as the price you can accept, because these devices are quite expensive.

    First of all it's important what you need. If you wanna a 3d printer under 1000, you can try rep rap printer. But it's little bit difficult to combine it. Because you're gonna try design a printer and collect parts. Some parts doesn't fit your design, gonna read tons of datasheet and documentation etc.-It all depends on your abilities,I made it one- Or you can buy from any manufacturer. But I want you to know, if you want big build plate(300mmx300mm or +), direct extruder, heated bed, etc. kind of features, they will push your budget.
