Frequently asked questions F.A.Q.

How to choose a 3D printer?

The choice of a 3D printer depends on many factors like what objects would you like to print? How big do you want them to be? How detailed? What is their purpose or function? Do you have any specific material requirements? How familiar are you with the 3D printing technologies?

 

In our experience so far we have discovered these simple formulas:

 

If you would like to print small or very detailed objects or if you are working in the dental or jewellery fields, then the best 3D printer for you is Form 2.

If you would like to print medium to small objects and you are an engineer, an architect or a product designer, then the best 3D printers for you are the 2+ and 3 Ultimaker series.

If you are an anegineer and would like to create strong, functional prototypes or end-use parts, then the best 3D printers for you are the MarkForged printers.

If 3D printing is your hobby and you would not like to use your 3D printer for professional purposes, then the best 3D printer for you is CraftBot.

If you are a maker and would like to not only print, but also understand how a 3D printer is made, then the best machine for you is Ultimaker Original+.

If you would like to print big objects like furniture or similar, then the best 3D printer for you is BigRep.

 

Naturally all these formulas are only meant as general guidance in the world of 3D printing. If you are not sure which 3D printer would suit you best or would like to receive more information, please don't hesitate to contact us via the contact form on our website.

How to choose a 3D scanner?

The choice of a 3D scanner mainly depends on two factors: budget and accuracy.
