    Mini 3D printed cities

    Hello, very new to 3D printing here. Looking for my first 3D printer. Did a lot of research and I think I want to get the Prusa MK3S or the Dremel 3D45. What I need it for is to print miniature cities, like Manhattan. Will these printers be the best bet for this required detail or do I need to go with something else?

    Much appreciated.

    depends how small and how much detail.
    You'd probably be better off with a resin printer. Just bear in kind the resin is quite toxic and you do need to take safety precautions when using the machines.
    And there is a fair amount of post processing involved. suppoort removal (if used) washing in isopropyl alcohol and then hardening under a uv light.

    BUT the results are most likely exactly what you are looking for.

    Thanks for your feedback. I don't think I want to go with resin due to the extra cost for material.

    I had this in mind. https://microscape.co/

    I think they're using filament. They won't reply to me though.
