Desktop/Personal 3D Printer Manufacturers
These companies sell 3D printers and kits intended for personal, DIY use with some potential for commercial application
Bits from Bytes is part of 3D Systems, and sells a range of low-cost 3D printers and 3D printer kits including the 3D Touch and RapMan 3.2.
Cost: Discontinued see Cubify
Boots Industries produce a low-cost thermoplastic extrusion 3D printer called the Rostock, and also make nice 1.75mm PLA filament.
This kickstarter project completely blew its funding goal of $100,000 and has funded $1.5 million. This project is hoping to have the buccaneer compete directly with Makerbot's Replicator 2, but for a much cheaper price.
Cubify is part of 3D Systems, and sells several thermoplastic extrusion, consumer-grade 3D printers. These range from the single-material Cube, to the larger, multimaterial Cube X Duo and Cube X Trio.
CB-Printer is the first domestic 3D printer to be produced in Poland. Its '3D Printer CB-printer' is available either fully assembled or as a kit.
Delta Micro Factory Corporation
The Delta Micro Factory Corporation is a Chinese 3D printer manufacturer. Under their PP3DP brand, the company sells the UP! range of low-cost, desktop 3D printers which use thermoplastic extrusion to build plastic objects. The same printers are also imported into the United States and resold by a company called Afinia.
[email protected] is a research project involved with 3D printers. They produced two machines, an iteration I and an iteration II. They did not directly sell their designs, but there was for a time a company which sold [email protected] kits.
Formlabs produces a low-cost desktop stereolithographic printer called the Form 1
MakerBot produces a range of desktop 3D printers targeted at professionals. The company claims around a 20 per cent share of all 3D printers sold. They have recently been acquired by Stratasys
Cost: $2199 (mid-range product)
MakerGear develop products and services for the maker community, and sells its own M Series thermoplastic extrusion 3D printers in both kit and fully-assembled formats, as well as some RepRap open source models.
Mixshop sells kits of various RepRap variations and their own Mix G1 printer.
The Portabee is a small, low-cost and foldable thermoplastic extrusion 3D printer available either fully assembled or as a kit.
