2014 BEST 3D PRINTERS UNDER $1000 REVIEWS AND COMPARISON

| XYZPrinting | 3D Systems | Solidoodle | Romscraj | Pirate3D;

3D printing is becoming one of the most fascinating developments of this decade so far. Until recently, this technology was only available to companies that could afford to pay tens of thousands of dollars for industrial sized applications. These companies quickly realized the benefits of using 3D printing for prototyping and limited types of production, as it proved to be a quick and cost effective solution that has vastly improved the quality of product development. Small businesses and startup companies that are on a budget have reaped the savings and convenience of 3D printing more than anyone else.

As this technology has emerged and steadily improved, like all other great ideas, we began to wonder if it would be possible to have a low-cost, home-based solution. Is it possible to get the amenities that are available with industrial quality 3D printers, but at an affordable price? Can we purchase a 3D printer for under $1000 and use it to produce professional quality results from the comfort and convenience of our own home or home office?

iReviews has found that there are several companies out there who offer 3D printers for under $1000, some better than others. So we researched what is available today and what is coming soon, evaluating features such as price, design, speed, precision, costs and types of materials supported, look, feel and overall user experience. Although the field was broad and there were hundreds of selections, most of them were DIY kits that you have to build yourself, which were deliberately excluded from this list. Others were built on cheap frames with little to no aesthetic qualities. We chose to stick with printers that can be pulled from the box, plugged in, calibrated, and then up and running. We chose the options that were just as pleasing to the eye as they were innovative.

Our top 5 selections for the 2014 best 3D printers for under $1000 are listed above and we are sure that you will find them just as impressive as we have, whether you would like one for business or for pleasure, without breaking your bank.
