Here we will be looking at the average 3d printer price in 2017. We will also be looking at the two different printing formats which are FDM (Fused deposition modeling ) & SLA (Stereolithography). These two types of printer are explained in greater detail on our page “Things To Consider When Looking For A 3D Printer For Sale”
Having said the above there is no real average price for 3d printers, as there are an array of machines on the market today. These printers come in a variety of build qualities and conditions. Some come fully assembled with great software packages and many extras. Whilst other 3d printers are sent out in kit form and it is left up to the customer to build the machine up themselves.
Some of the big names in todays 3d printer market are for FDM models MakerBot LulzBot, Sindoh (See our Top pick for mid range 3d Printer Here….)
The other main type of 3d printer in today’s market place is the SLA (Stereolithography) (See out review of the Formlabs Form 1+ SLA 3d printer HERE….)
The above are all fully assembled when sent out to the end user. As for the self assembly models the ALUNAR 3D Desktop Printer Prusa i3 DIY High Accuracy CNC Self Assembly is one example available at amazon.
As a general rule of thumb we have divided the 3d printers at finest3dprinters.com into 3 main price categories as follows. Cheap 3d Printers Under $700, Mid Range 3d Printers $700 to $2000 & High end 3d Printers over $2000 .
There are of course more expensive 3d printers than the categories we have outlined above. Large Industrial 3d printers can run into six figures and many are able to print with more mediums such as certain metals .
