Choosing the best one for your printer is mostly a matter of taste. For comparisons, see List of electronics, Comparison of Electronics and Alternative Electronics.

Extruder

Extruder The Omega3D uses a bowden extruder, adding flexibility and speed to the extruder nozzle.

Heated Bed

Heated Bed The basic model of the Omega3D does not include a heated bed, thus making PLA a recommended filament.
