How to choose a 3D printer during Black Friday

There are so many 3D printers on sale for Black Friday that you’ll think they’ve started printing copies of themselves. With so many discounts, the question becomes: Which one to choose? To simplify your decision, we’ve included our guide to the best 3D printers for 2020. Our top pick for this year is the Formlabs Form 3, which is a little pricey and slightly larger than other, but prints with incredible smoothness and accuracy. It uses a laser projection to “grow” objects instead of heating a plastic filament and pressing it through a nozzle to build them layer by layer. It’s also got ease of use features, like an auto-filling resin tray, and an app that lets you review your object’s status from anywhere.

Now, even at a discount, the Formlabs Form 3 (a step up from the Formlabs Form 2) is going to be in the thousands of dollars, which is simply out of many of our price ranges. But not to fear, there are great options down the shelf as well, like the Lulzbot Mini 2, which gives you a custom and supremely involved level of control over the development process, not to mention much faster printing speeds than its predecessors. Meanwhile, the Anycubic Photon allows you to fabricate insanely detailed projects at a fraction of the price of other 3D printers. And let’s not forget the Monoprice Mini Delta, which comes fully assembled and ready to print out of the box, and comes with a heated bed, as well — just a fantastic printer for beginners.
