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:
- Compare multiple printers and their features with the huge interactive 3D printer table.
- 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.
- Look at (and play with!) the statistics about the printer data below.
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.
Printer prices breakdown
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.
