Hi guys! It's a time to choose 3d printer for your home. It's a best way to create something new, original and helpful. We learn about type of materials for 3d printing, printer models/brands, software for creating 3d models.
3d printer is universal device in engineering, modelling and design. You don't need expensive CNC machines or other diy equipment.
If you want a good device for 3D printing welcome on Gearbest. I’ll tell you how to find ideal variant for you easy and cheap (under 200 USD). All printers which you will see below have the method FDM (fused deposition modeling).
First that you need to know - what sizes will your models have. The standard maximum sizes of the printing area are 220x220h240-250mm
Second, what are you going to print - for correct choosing materials for printing in line with your models. The most wide using materials are PLA (for design models) and ABS (for engineer models). The thickness of the material (diameter) 1,75 mm. You can also buy it on Gearbest.
Third, supported file formats. It depends on software that you want to use. I recommend the next simple and free apps: SketchUp, Blender or eMachineShop CAD (for engineer models). Or if you are profi - 3ds Max and PTC Creo. All these programs can save models with extension *.stl, which supported by all 3D printers.
The fourth, print accuracy - depend on printing nozzle, which can be used in printer and positioning accuracy of axiss xyz based on parameters of stepper motors. Usually it used 0,4 mm nozzle but you can find also 0,1, 0,2, 0,3 mm. The smaller nozzle the slower printing speed and preciser quality.
I collected the most popular models and compare them for more easy understanding in the table:
As you can see the optimal model is Creality Ender 3 Pro. Also you can find the similar model with some additional features and a good price - pay attencion on Alfawise U30 Pro.
Please, like my post, and thanks!
