3D printer suggestions?

I'm looking into buying a 3D printer at home. Any suggestions for top of the line printers? 


  • I'm a big fan of the Ultimaker printers.  I have the Ultimaker 2 Extended+ and have been very happy with it.  I've used a number of different models from different manufacturers and by far the Ultimaker has been a better experience with better quality prints.  I did a lot of research before settling on the Ultimaker.  I was down to that or the Lulzbot Taz 6, but that model was not available yet and I was tired of waiting.  And while that's a solid printer, I'm very happy I went with the Ultimaker.

    I would also suggest using Simplify 3D as your slicing tool (though it costs around $150) as is arguably the best tool on the market for preparing parts for home printing.

    This is all just based on my own experience, so your milage may vary.

  • This is great information Chris, thanks a lot. I'm going to take a look at those and see what I come up with. Sure to have more questions down the road, but for now, thanks!
