Buying a 3D printer, but which one?
December 01, 2017 08:30PM
I have been researching 3D printers on and off for some time and every time I come back to my search the market has expended some more. The Ultimaker 2 keeps coming out top of the online reviews so should it be an easy decision and this is the 'best' one to buy?

My original plan was to limit the spend to £1000 and the printers that have shown most promise in this range are the lulzbot mini and the UP plus 2. The application for parts is model helicopter scale components, prototyping RC components such as rotor heads and multicopter parts. Then, another spanner has been thrown in with the opportunity to have a go at making patterns for castings for RC engines.

So, Which 3D printers are people using with the most success?

Are you looking for a ready-built printer, as opposed to a kit? What is your budget, what print size do you need, and what materials do you want to print?
