The best 3D printers are the ones engineered for industrial-level precision without compromising reliability. From Stereolithography (SLA) to Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) technology, the modern day printer is capable of layer resolutions between 20-400 microns while seamlessly generating high-quality prototypes from a wide selection of materials that include PLA, ABS, PET, HIPS, HDPE, and TPU. Equipped with 3-point leveling systems and spacious heat-resistant build platforms, 3D printers can produce beautiful results whether you’re an experienced DIY maker or a hobbyist. Whether you want the challenge of working with an open source platform or feel more comfortable with the Simplify 3D software package, commercial printers of today are as close to plug and play as they can get. With prices dropping and brand new technology like Automated Resin Systems and powerful personal applications all the rage, 3D printers are no longer isolated to large-scale industrial firms. They are being accepted in the consumer marketplace by every type of DIYer. Here is iReviews’ list of the 5 Best 3D Printers for 2022.
