3DPB aims to provide an easy way to compare printers feature by feature. The easiest way to do this is to play with the huge interactive 3D printer table


We could use some help! Anyone can add a printer page to this site or edit information. For this you need a Silk account (it's free). After you created an account, you will be taken to the 3D printer table and see a button for adding a printer. You can also edit other pages. Please use with care :) 


Silk is a tool to make smart websites out of collections of information. You can use Silk to make interactive visualizations with your data. If you're interested, you can learn more about Silk here.

3DPB: Compare 3D printers

This site provides a birds-eye view on the quickly expanding landscape of commercially available 3D printers. We let you do this in three ways:

  1.  Compare multiple printers and their features with the huge interactive 3D printer table.
  2. Create a Silk account and hit the 'follow' button on the top of the page to get a weekly or daily summary of newly added printers.
  3. Look at (and play with!) the statistics about the printer data below.

Some statistics

Because we made this site with Silk, we can easily generate some visualizations of the printer data. Don't forget to hit 'explore' to play around with the data yourself!

Here we can see that most manufacturers only have one printer in the database. Notable exceptions are Bits from Bytes, Hyrel 3D, Makemendel and Printrbot. They have 5 or more printers in the database.

There's a great difference in prices in 3D printers. However, almost a third of our database consists off sub $1,000 printers, which is good news as far as we're concerned! Below we'll dig into the price categories a little deeper.
