3D printing is an impressive technology feat. Just a decade ago, it was only accessible to the likes of NASA scientists and mechanical engineers. Today, anyone can create their own models right at home. Despite common perception, this fast-growing hobby is easy to pick up, with many reliable and affordable 3D printers now available in the market. Additionally, numerous websites and forums are ready to welcome newcomers and guide you to outstanding 3D designs, all printable with your new system. So, whether you’re just starting out in this burgeoning community and hunting for your first printer or planning to elevate your existing prints, our compilation of the best 3D printer deals will surely have something you’ll like.

The immensely popular Creality Ender-3 Pro is part of a series, as indicated by the “3”. Tracing back to its predecessor provides insight into how economical a 3D printer can be in the present times. This filament-based printer lacks built-in shielding and a camera and offers a very basic interface. However, if your goal is to save a considerable amount of money and experiment with 3D printing without a huge initial cost, this could be the ideal option for you.

The Monoprice MP Cadet 3D Printer is an excellent starting point for those new to 3D printing. Despite its compact size, it provides a decent printing area of 3.9 x 4.1 x 3.9 inches. The printer’s diminutive stature at 8.5 x 7.9 x 10.6 inches makes it a perfect fit for kids. A great feature is its auto-leveling bed; the device uses PLA and PLA Pro filament, the top choice for 3D printing novices.


The Mars 4 Max is a 6K resolution 3D printer using resin to create various objects, ranging from figures to jewelry. Its print volume of 7.71 x 4.81 x 5.9 inches is sizeable for creating small tabletop armies and role-playing characters. The printer functions with the VoxelDance Tango slicing software, offering different printing modes according to your needs for speed or accuracy. The printer’s compact, boxy design, accentuated by a striking red cover, makes it not just a tool but a potential conversation starter.


The Creality Resin 3D Printer Halot-Mage is an 8K printer that uses resin as opposed to filament. When we compare FDM and SLA 3D printers (the Halot-Mage and all resin printers are SLA printers), we see that SLA printers make better resolution prints but also tend to be more expensive than their FDM counterparts. The Halot-Mage gives us a counterbalance to that price claim, and especially so while on sale. Acting as a sort of entry portal to the land of SLA printing, the Halot-Mage has a printing area of 8.97 x 5.03 x 9.05 inches, printing at an impressive planar detail level of 29.7 microns. With the kit also comes 3 months of free access to Chitubox Pro (~$48 value) for preprocessing your prints.


The Anycubic Photon M3 Max is a one of the most powerful 3D printers you can get. It has an impressive 11.7 x 6.5 x 11.8 inch printing area and does so in 8K. SLA printing, which uses lights and lasers, is dependent upon light to print. The Anycubic Photon M3 Max uses an array of LED lights to get the light not only just right but also evenly distributed. The effect? Fast printing. And, the Anycubic Photon M3 Max won’t let that fast printing get the best of you. How so? By automatically feeding more resin into your well when it gets low, kinda like those automatic plant waterers. The result is a hassle-free print that doesn’t have to be babysat to the utmost degree.
