        That actually seems like a really fair and balanced guide, I was surprised.

            uh "Best 3D printer for small businesses: Stratasys Mojo"

            From someone who has worked with the Mojo first hand, I can tell you that's definitely the WORST solution for a small business. First off, the printer itself is expensive on its own. 10,000 dollars is no small pocket change to drop on a printer, even if it is for a small business. Second off, that printer is restricted to using only the filament that comes from Stratasys, which will run you a couple hundred dollars per cartridge.

            The professor I knew who had the printer and often let me use it told me that he calculated the price of printing to cost $5 per cubic inch. That is utterly insane. Not to mention in the software, there are no settings for setting infill density, or layer height. It's just solid or hollow. Sure, the prints can turn out really nice for minimal maintenance, but seriously, at that cost?! Forget about it.

              Yeah, their plastic is expensive and I don't like that that model comes with the print head on the filament instead of the printer.

                Wow that's some cool clarification you got there. And $5 per cubic inch, wow. If that thing can print gold then I wouldn't mind.

                  That is an excellent and precise review from the link. I always used his site for computer information but never thought he did things like 3D printers too.

                    Hi guys! As for me, the best 3d printer for beginners is Wanhao Duplicator i3 mini.

                    https://www.wanhaousa.net/product-page/ ... or-i3-mini

                    The printer costs less than $ 200. But despite the simplicity of the design and low price, it makes high-quality models, especially if they are from PLA.

                    Here are some of the main pros and cons: Nothing needs to be further customized and invented. To start the printer and print the model you don't need any special knowledge. But this printer doesn't have any heated platform, the case is open and the print area is small but it still large enough for most projects.

                    If you want to know more about how to choose the 3d printer and make the right decision, I will recommend reading this article. It was very helpful to me.

                    Good luck with your choice!

                      Well, First 3D printer is always bought with high expectation and also for increasing your learning capacity in the 3D printer so it is always better do not expect much. Printer for small scale business is always confusing it not going to give you much returns till the time you are not having anything unique to sell. And as a suggestion, if you want to go then you should better start with ender 3 as a 3D printer beginners.
