    I have looked at several. For the cost, you can't beat Kingroon at $139, but for me, you are gonna spend $139, I would spend a few extra bucks and for $169 get the Tronxy XY-2.

    Then again, for $206, you can buy the Creality Ender-3. It has a much more widespread user base to help.

    If you want easy to use and supportive user-base, go with a Prusa MK3S and Prusa Mini. The mini is only $349 and is well worth the price.

    Before choosing a 3D printer, maybe it might be useful knowing something more about the functioning of 3D printing technology and FDM printers.

    Indeed, picking a cheap 3D printer without knowing what are the minimum requirements to get decent printing results might be a waste of time and money. You will pass more time fixing issues instead of printing. There are a lot of guides comparing 3D printer brands and models. However, I'd like to suggest having a look at this 3D printing buying guide, which provides an in-depth analysis of the main specs you should look after to.

    Choose wisely and happy printing.

    Think about it; rather than creating two-dimensional pictures on a piece of paper, you can now transform your imagination into reality. Also, the act of using a 3D pen sure is fun! https://10hightech.com/best-3d-pens/
    Buying a quality 3D Printing pen is hard, especially if you are a beginner, can be tricky. This is why we have reviewed a list of the ten best 3D pens.

    I'm surprised not to see the TronXY X1 here. Mine cost £155 shipped, in kit form. The kit is fraught with problems, but if you're at all handy, the printer you end up with is highly competent. Here's my build video in case anyone's interested.

    My friend has a website they have information about 3d cheap printers
    Check out below to find cheap 3d printers for under $1,000 USD. If you want to engage in 3D printing but your budget holds you back, it is time that you develop a new perspective about 3D printers. A decade ago, 3D printers cost over $100,000 when it is not as popular as it is

    The cheapest i think is 101Hero http://www.101hero.com/. $79.00 for the normal one and $89.00 for the developer version. It started as $49.00 on kickstarter but if you look at the comments, some of the backers did not get any of the printer yet or they have defective stepper motors. Im one of the lucky ones that order on their website and received the printer after 2 months after their release dates. I have a problem on working the right configuration as some of the test prints turns out fine and some is just a blob of plastic.

    one thing I would Advice to the readers is that 3D printers and 3D pens are two different things, people often get confused in this thing. If you are thinking to buy the easy-to-use pens, here is the detailed guide to it http://mobilesiri.com/best-3d-pens/

    Comparing cheap 3d printers is going to help do what? If all you want is a $250 printer, buy a glue gun.

    Maybe I'm misunderstanding the 'cheapest 3D printers' qualification... But there are just tons and tons of prusa style Chinese printer kits in the $200 to $300 USD range. I bought one, and have been chronicling my adventures - and misadventures - in the 'Results from $300 Chinese 3D printer' thread.

    If what we're looking for is cheap 3D printers, we should give these kits a shout out. There's a lot of value there.

    Hi Dman,

    Yes Hobbyking sell a range of 3D printers that seem to work very well for the money you pay. We have experienced their Mini Fabrikator and we think it gives great results for only £120. Furthermore, all of our filament is compatible with Hobbyking Printers.

    Adding a headed bed and updating the hot end shouldn't be too difficult for you. Most 3D printers come apart quite easily allowing you to reach all of the internals. However, there is no set way, or a kit you can buy, that can achieve the results you want which means you're going to have to do all of the thinking and "engineering" yourself.

    However, don't let this put you off. Certainly go with a Hobbyking Printer to learn the ropes of 3D printing and then, once you are more knowledgable, you'll find buying your next printer so much easier.

    I hope this helps,

    Cheers,

    Hi I am new Here after looking on the wed lately. I saw A printer being sold by HOBBY KING. After a bit of poking around I found the main site for the printer http://www.colido.com. The printer i was looking at is called CoLiDo DIY. They say you can put it together in about 20 MIN.

    After looking for more info they say it is all common parts.After reading all the info i can find. It looks like the control boards and the like are clones.

    So my next 2 Questions would be how easy would it be to add a heated bed. And how hard to update the print Head and hot end.

    Thanks Dman
