Metal 3D printing has become a hot topic recently mostly due to the fact that the current 3D parts that are being printed are really good quality. So good in fact, some of it is actually better than what is made by normal methods.
Traditional methods tend to be wasteful when it comes to making metal […]
Out of all the 3D printers that I’ve had, the LulzBot TAZ 5 3D Printer definitely comes out on top. The 5th version is definitely better in almost all aspects, and at a high price tag of $2,283 you definitely get what you pay for. It’s definitely one of if not the fastest printers around that we’ve tested that […]
The Printrbot Play 3D Printer is Printrbot’s cheapest printer. They consider it entry-level, meaning they only sell it at $399. While I don’t usually start my reviews stating the price of the printer, it is relevant as to why the Play is one of the best printers so far and possibly the best printer on the […]
In this review we’re going to refer to the Makerbot 5th Generation Replicator. We’ll also talk about some of the basics about how 3D printing works and some of the things that you want to take into account when purchasing a 3D printer.
An Overall Summary Of 3D Printing
So how does a 3D printer work exactly? […]
My Orion Delta 3D Printer by SeeMeCNC came already pre-built in a nicely packaged box from UPS, and I noticed that the shape was much different from that of other printers. Most tend to be in the form of some sort of box or square, but the Orion had a taller and more slender build […]
Given my overall general experience with 3D printers, I must admit that after using the LulzBot Mini Desktop 3D Printer for a couple of months, it’s definitely been the funnest experiences that I’ve had working with 3D printers. There were a few mistakes along the way – as is the case with all printers – […]
When it first came out, the MakerGear M2 3D Printer was one of the best-value 3D printers that you could find on the market. Ironically enough, that still holds to be true to this day. Opening the box you’ll quickly notice that the printer has a black steel and sturdy frame with a vertical z-axis […]
The Printrbot Metal Simple 3D Printer was released on April 10th, 2014 as an all-metal version that was expected to be an upgrade from their previous yet popular Simple Wood 3D Printer. Eventually their old model was renamed to Simple Maker’s Edition and then the Printerbot decided to tack on Simple on its name as well. […]
The FlashForge 3D Printer Creator Pro is also a Makerbot Replicator clone that comes with all of the enhancements right out of the box. As a result, it’s somewhat better than the replicator 2X that comes at half the cost. This makes it perfect. I’ve been a long-time owner of Makerbot Replicators, and I’m definitely satisfied […]
