Making a list of best 3D printer is a hard task. This is mostly because technology changes lightning fast so do consumer demands.
There is a large amount of cheap 3D printers which appeared in 2017/18 and that makes this task even harder.
While our team invest plenty of effort and tries to test as much cheap 3D printers out there, we can’t test every single printer under the Sun. That’s why we can’t call this an ultimate list.
On the other hand, this list includes only the best 3D printers out of a dozen we tested.
One more thing wort mentioning is that we are all different. What might be the best for us, might not suit your needs.
Do not just click buy it now button based on our list. Do your own research. Each of our recommended printer has a more in-depth article which will open once you click “full review” button.
That being said, here is our list of best 3D printers we had a chance to test so far. Printers here are listed in no particular order.
