There are more than 1000 models of 3D printers on the market today.
Many factors such as print quality, material quality, reliability, error margin, customer service, price and software
What is the most suitable 3D printer for you
If you want to come along, let’s examine the most preferred 3D printer today
3D Printers for Small Businesses
Such printers are consumer focused. They can produce quality parts and are ideal especially for designers and small companies.
Ultimaker is one of the most experienced companies in the 3D printer industry. Ultimaker, believed to be the most reliable printer on the market, has produced the ideal printer for small businesses with its 2+ model. The Netherlands-based company has recently launched the Ultimaker 3 on the market.
This white box printer has a PT100 printer head and an advanced cartridge. This printer, which also has a sprayer head in different sizes, can fill 24 millimeters cubic feet per second with a 0.8 millimeter head.
The fan system is optimized for air flow and cooling and is constantly being improved by user comments and recommendations. So Ultimaker company places great importance on user experience.
The only disinfection of this device is that it has a single spray tip and a high price

Produced by the Polish company Zortrax, this printer is one of the notable products of the 3D printer sector. The company, funded heavily by the Kickstarter campaign in 2013, did not make the face of people who trust themselves with the M200 model.
It’s easy to set up a printer made from solid aluminum. The calibration process is very short. Utilizing polymer grades of HIPS, ULTRAT and acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), this printer is a printer that takes high marks in terms of output quality, reliability and price-performance. So Zortrax, even for this small company, did not compromise on its high quality understanding.
However, Zortrax’s ecosystem is relatively limited. So there is not enough third-party product range to modify the product. The users, though, comment that they have made improvements and improvements to the company’s user comments. There is no heat control on this model. This makes it a bit difficult to experiment with different materials. In addition, the company does not demand that the company develops in terms of wi-fi connectivity, customer service, and even double jetting.
Nevertheless, Zortrax users have not found that this device produces almost no failed output. This flagship flagship of its category is sold for 1800 dolls and all the accessories needed in the box are also available.
