The 3D Printing Phenomenon

3D printing is a methodology of making three dimensional objects from a computerized document. The formation of a 3D printed item is attained, using additive substance. Some of the reviews of affordable 3D printers are as follows:

Printrbot Simple Maker


This was made by the Printrbot Simple Maker. Pretty amazing isn’t it?

Printrbot Simple, which is accessible in various diverse forms, starting at $349 for the Do it yourself unit or $449 for pre-assembled. This printer uses PLA material to make little prints rapidly and with fair quality.

The printer is fabricated from laser-cut wood and has exposed gadgets and printing instruments to hold the expense down. It can print only in PLA plastic, which means prints are weaker than ABS ones.

The print volume is little, at 4 x 4 x 4 inches, but a $139 development unit expands this to 7.2 by 4 by 5.5 inches. There is also no stand-alone printing: it must be driven by a PC.

However, the Simple Maker gives a simple, easy prologue to the universe of 3D printing without setting out a considerable amount of money.

Ultimaker 2


These little figures were made using the Ultimaker 2.0

The unit is solid and streamlined, with straightforward controls. Ultimaker‘s Cura cutting and printing project is natural — and only one alternative on this gadget that can run any open-source choices.

Ultimaker backs up any brand of 3mm ABS or PLA fiber, and in addition tries different things with other filament types. The exceptionally dynamic client group is working with copper and metal variations from filament creators like ColorFabb, for example.

The Ultimaker 2.0 can be used in various types of aapplications — from rough models that it produces rapidly at 200-micron resolutions to greatly fine prints at only 20 microns. The print head has space for a second extruder, which Ultimaker will offer later in 2015 to allow imprinting in different colors or material types.

Resin Printer


Resin printing is another type of printing method above fusion deposition modeling which most of 3D printers use.

The objects produced by resin printers have more details in the structure than any other standard 3D printer. The price is not necessarily cheap for this printer, but it’s justified by the amazing quality it provides tech fans.

Cube 3 Printer


How adorable does this look!?

The Cube 3 is one of the most user friendly printers available in the market. The 3D printer puts the fiber (either ABS or PLA) in a fixed cartridge that is available in 20 colors, which are easily replaceable. The system also provides a step-by-step guide on how you can use the printer, so you can enjoy it easily and without headaches.

Since there is no heated print bed and most features in the printer are closed in, it is very safe for children to use. It can connect to any PC or laptop over Wi-Fi connection.

Why is 3D Printing so Popular?

In 3D printing industry, there’s a saying that goes like this: “if you can draw it, then you can make it.”

All you need is the vision in black and white, and then you can turn it into reality with 3D printing. The reason 3D printing is so popular among the masses is thanks to the freedom 3D printing provides us, with only $1000-2000 invested, people have produced some incredible things. There are absolutely no limits as to what you can creates so far. It’s amazing!

Some amazing designs and productions are:
