Cheap 3D Printers THAT DON’T SUCK $350 and under – 2017

Want to get into 3D Printing but don’t have much money to spend? There are a lot of low cost 3D Printers now available but not many are very good!

In this video I share with you my choices for 3D Printers $350 USD or under that actually work pretty good, and would be a great start into 3D Printing.

These machines are either those that have been tested here on Maker’s Muse – or come highly recommended by others in the 3D Printing community.

IMPORTANT! This video is purely my opinion based on my experience – you are responsible for your own decisions!

Links to the machines are listed below as well as the communities and reviews mentioned in the video – none have tracking or affiliates attached. Happy printing!

Anet brand isn’t in the list because he didn’t recived the money… that’s all.
I’m an owner of an A6 model, and with 3 or 4 printed upgrades, the Anet is printing better than some 1500 dollars printers.
Anet brand has one of the most biggest communities in the world.
But like i said before, this video is a little corrupted…

Fucking worth every penny!

It’ might take you a few afternoons to build but when it all comes together it’s worth

Kinzuko says:

not saying im not willing to save my money, but i dont think the tech is there enough yet. i think i should wait a couple more years for one that is affordable, reasonably sized (hate to get specific, but big enough to print an AR-15 lower), allows for basically whatever plastic i throw at it, and can print with 2 different filaments on the same object

Jarod Findley says:

Or get a anet a8 for 13 more

Jadon Fishman says:

Maltfalc says:

why would anyone waste their money on a kickstarter 3d printer that may never even get made when there are so many proven designs already on the market?

Samuel Adams says:

I have the Anet a8 and it makes amazing prints super great prints, I printed the Jolly Benchy boat on my printer and my friends Ultimaker and I couldn’t tell the difference.

mike nonya says:
