Choosing a 3D Printer Quick Tips

There are several considerations for buying a 3D printer. Only you can know what you want and the projects you do, but the XX points below apply to all new buyers.

#1 3D printer built plates

First, consider the size of the build plate. Bigger build plates cost more, but are the smaller plates fit for your projects? Make sure you answer that question before you commit. A plat that’s too small for purpose is a wasted investment.

#2 3D printing materials

Some printers can only work with PLA. That’s fine if that’s all you need. But consider a machine that lets you print in other filaments or those that are multi-material capable. There are also different finishes, colors, and textures to consider. Get to know the different thread types and what you need.

#3 Enclosures & safety

Not all 3D printers have enclosures to protect the user from the high-temperature extruder. It’s not a law to have them either. However, safety is essential and should always be a buying factor. Especially consider a 3D printer with an enclosure if you’re a raw novice, and it’s within budget.

#4 Understand printer resolutions

All 3D printers print in 3D, but they’re not all equal. The XY resolution of a machine has more influence over the print quality than anything else. This matters if your aim is to produce models that are as smooth and as detailed as possible.

Think about what you want from a 3D printer if you’re a first-time buyer. What are your current and future project plans? Also, a short list of needs and expectations is a brilliant, low-tech way to help you make better buying decisions. Lastly, make sure you have the desk space and a ventilated area where you can safely run your new machine 😉
