Top Five 3D Printers that are Ruling the Market

3D Printers are being developed by several innovative enterprises who are keen to make it big in the sector. With the 3D printers, these companies are making products that can ease the manufacturing process for 3D designers, inventors and manufacturers. Here are the top 5 3D printers that you should know about:

Da Vinci Jr.

Da Vinci Jr

Don’t let slim and light look of the new 3D printer, the da Vinci Jr. fool you. It has a robust build size and easily the most affordable 3D printer in the market. This 3D printer is simple and easy-to-use and requires no calibration at all. It has an auto-loading filament system that delivers a seamless 3D printing experience.

The da Vinci Jr. also includes a press-and-release extruder which is fluid enough to work. You just have to open it up, press the release button, and the cleaning process will be done in a trice. Also you can replace the filament spool to make refilling easier than ever before. These are non-toxic and biodegradable plastic that can be recycled. The product consumes only 75 W of power and is priced at a reasonable $349 only.


Ultimaker 3D Printers

Whatever your 3D printing needs are, Ultimaker can deliver it. The product is available in a plethora of eye-catching colors and compounds. The filaments are tested to ensure that they can perform the job efficiently.

As users, one can assuredly get a print sample and only the best results make the grade. The device is also tested with filaments in the 3D printers up to the limit and hence one can print 3D masterpieces, and one can actually visualize the end result too.

The company also launched several other 3D printing products with Ultimaker 2 Go, Ultimaker 2, Ultimaker app and the like. The price for Ultimaker ranges from € 31.50 and beyond.

Cube 3D Printers

Cube 3

Cube 3D Printer is a personal printer and the third generation of printers, featuring a new, compact design along with dual colour printing feature. The user has a choice of 23 print colours in ABS and PLA plastics while the printer has also incorporated touch-screen controls, with direct printing possible right from your mobile device. The 3D printing speed is twice as faster as other printers.It has easy -to-use software that can be used on both Windows and Mac platforms.

This easy-to-use 3D printer is also certified safe and is recommended for children aged 8+ and adults alike. It has insta-load material cartridges, filament jets and the like that makes for an effortless 3D printing experience always.

Form 2

Form 2

Form 2 3D printer is known to create amazingly detailed models with the help of lasers and resin. Formlabs has smoothened out the bumps from the traditional printer, thus creating an efficient prosumer 3D printer. It is a stereolithographic printer that makes use of resin that becomes hard when exposed to laser light. Varied objects are drawn with multiple layers which are then pulled out of the resin bath when finished. These objects are solid. For the curing process, they need to be put in a rubbing alcohol bath.

The new printer has a 25-200 micron layer height along with a new resin system along with a unique “wiper” arm for preparing each printed layer. The wiper removes fragments of the previous print and pray method. The quality of the results are amazing but the curing process needs lots of patience and room, suitable for a professional setting.



Makerarm is a robotic 3D printer, an efficient laser cutter, ink printer, fabricator and also an effective assembly machine all rolled into one that can even create an entire laptop!

The machine can also create high-quality objects that only the most expensive models can create. It includes precision joints and high-powered lasers for high-quality etching and carving and even boasts of the largest work area among 3D printers. Super early birds can avail the product at $999, but the price is expected to increase to $2199 for a comprehensive MakerSpace bundle soon.
