Best 3D Printer Deals
Creality Ender 3, $319.20 (Was $429)
When it comes to 3D printing, the possibilities are endless; but without a decent printer, your creativity can be severely limited. With the Creality Ender 3, you can be sure that every piece you make will be better than the last. This printer comes partially assembled, making the most boring part (putting it together) relatively quick and easy. For its smaller size, this machine truly packs a punch and leaves enough space on your desk to display all of your creations.
Sometimes the unexpected can happen, which is why the Ender 3 has a resume printing function, allowing you to finish the job despite a power outage or other unforeseen halts. The Creality Ender 3 printer is also incredibly user-friendly and offers after-purchase, lifetime technical support, making it the ideal choice for beginners, kids (with adult supervision, as the hot bed may pose a hazard) and well-versed users alike. Its intuitive V-shaped design prevents clogs, bad extrusion, and allows for quietened usage. At nearly 25 percent off the original price, its impressive functionality and high print quality will have you wondering how you didn’t pay more.
WEEDO Mini 3D Printer for Kids and Beginners, $149 (Was $199)
You might have some pretty great ideas to try out and can’t wait to get your hands on a 3D printer, but if you have little ones who want to take a crack at it — or just aren’t ready to invest in a bigger, more expensive piece until you understand the basics — the WEEDO Mini 3D Printer may be your best choice. The printer’s compact design (under 11 inches tall) makes it an easily portable tool that’s ready right out of the box; just plug it in and print.
The Mini printer’s proximity sensor allows for auto bed aligning, which is a win for those who are new to 3D printing as you won’t have to adjust the printing bed, and can simply sit back while the printer does its magic. This is another intuitive printer that incorporates a resume printing function, so if there are any disruptions, you can pick up right where you left off. Finally, the low voltage, unheated print bed makes this a safer, preferred choice for kids (or clumsy adults).
Anycubic Photon Mono X 6K Resin 3D Printer, $499.99 (Was $799.99)
If you’re considering digging a little deeper into your pockets, the Anycubic Photon Mono X 6K has to be your top choice for a 3D printer. Though more expensive than previous mentions, this piece of technology is built to last, so you won’t be making this a regular purchase. As a larger investment piece, this printer may be a better option for those with some printing experience, but the ease of use doesn’t completely exclude budding 3D printers either.
For the tech wizards who have a pretty good grasp of the ins and outs of 3D printing, you’ll be utterly impressed with the 6K resolution, ability to print at a larger volume, and the incredibly reduced print time: one layer per second at top speed. The difference in the quality of prints is mountains beyond what a $200 printer can do, allowing for awe-inspiring detail. The Anycubic printer also boasts of its wide compatibility with most resins, so you can branch out in your choice of materials. Whatever you’re printing, this 3D printer is by far one of the best on sale this Prime Day.
Voxelab Aquila 3D Printer, $159.99 (Was $219)
Don’t let the irritating whir from a 3D printer stop you from creating your masterpiece. Voxelab’s Aquila 3D Printer prides itself on its quiet printing capabilities, maxing out at 50 decibels (which is quieter than your average electric toothbrush). This printer is slightly more upscale than some of the others offered this Prime Day, weighing in at just under 22 pounds. The extra weight is put to good use though, with an all-metal body, V-profile, and a user-friendly colored screen with a rotary knob, its sleekness will make you feel like a seasoned printer.
This is a great option for those who have had some practice and are a little more confident in their 3D printing abilities; the Aquila 3D features an open design, allowing you to modify and upgrade your equipment for a more personalized experience. It also features resume printing functions, fast heating, and its carbon-crystal silicon glass platform prevents your prints from warping. It’s a top-of-the-line model, so the discounted price is quite a pleasant surprise.
