Choosing a 3D Printer

Thursday July 11, 2019 at 12:04pm

In our experience there are 4 key questions to ask yourself:

  • Is this your first 3D printer?
  • What is the maximum size I will need to build 90% of the time?
  • How critical is surface finish to me?
  • What mechanical properties does my part need?
 

Once you have answers to the above questions you are able to focus in on 2 or 3 printers that are market leaders in their required fields. To learn more please check out the full post here on SOLIDPRINT3D.
