The Advantages And Disadvantages Of Home 3D Printers


Cheap: Most of the home 3D printers on the market are less than US$1,000, and there are also cost-effective printers, such as the Creality Ender 3 3D printer, the price is less than $200, its price is a quarter of the price of an Apple phone. Anyone who needs it can afford it.

Small and light: 3D Printers on the market are really light and small, and the size is about the same as a laptop. I personally think that putting it at home does not take up much space.

Easy to assemble or no need to assemble: Under normal circumstances, we only need to assemble the simple part, and the complicated part has been made into the main body by the manufacturer. This not only exercises our hands-on ability but also makes these 3D printers suffer more users’ love.


High printing quality: Although it can’t be compared with the factory-specific powder printers that cost thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars, as a household, it is completely enough to not need to pursue such high precision!

There are many choices of printing materials: 3D Printers on the market are not only printing hot-melt plastic materials such as ABS, PLA, but also printing wood filling materials, and various metal filling materials, such as copper, steel and so on. That means you can print bronze sculptures! Such as Creality ender 3 pro 3d printer.


Small printing space: Compared with other 3D printers with tens of thousands of dollars, the printing space is indeed limited, but there are also solutions: cut the model to print and then stick it together.


Printing speed is slower: compared with other high-priced 3D printers ≧150mm/s. However, I think it is unfair to compare low-priced products with high-priced products. As long as the model is suspended where there are pillars, the slow speed will not affect the effectiveness of the model at all, but the waiting time will be longer.

In general, a 3D printer cost less than 200 dollars is still very cost-effective.
