Snapmaker 2 is more than a 3D printer. It’s also a 3-in-1 machine that allows you to 3D print, laser-etch, and carve wood using a CNC machine. All it takes is a module change. It’s large too. In one day, I was able to print a Mandalorian helmet full-size that fit my large head. It’s perfect for the cosplayer in all of your lives.
The Mars 3 resin printer is small and powerful. The Mars 3’s 4K LCD displays stunning detail on all models printed, and does so at a very high speed. I love this printer, and use it almost every single day. To get the best deal, make sure to clip the coupon.

While the Ender brand has been well-known for being affordable and delivering excellent performance, its beginner-friendly nature has been criticized. The new Ender-3 S1 model is far easier to assemble and use than the V2 version. It’s one of the most popular starter printers, and it’s a great choice for beginners. Creality’s combo includes an upgraded nozzle kit and a glass plate, as well as extra filament. Check out our Creality Ender-3S1 review.
Peopoly is known for making large-scale resin 3D printing machines. The Phenom Forge continues that tradition. Its build volume of 11.3″ x 64.8″ x 13.8 inches is ideal for creating large models with many details or mass-producing high-detail parts quickly. There is no better deal than the one available at Matterhackers for a large-format printer. This is a remarkable deal at $999
I have recently used the Finder 3 and was impressed by the product’s quality right out of the box. It’s simple to set up and includes a flexible build plate you can use to replace your glass bed. It makes it easier to remove built-ups.
This printer is ideal for teachers, since it has an enclosure that makes it stable. The slicer also allows you to control multiple printers via Wi-Fi.

The CR-30 is a conveyor belt 3D printer that was commercially released in the early 1990s. It is fascinating to use. Although it is not for beginners, you can print large models such as swords on a single production line.
This printer is great if you want to make the same model for every Etsy shop.
Creality CR-30 Price Alerts: $879
The Saturn S is a fantastic upgrade to Elegoo’s OG medium-sized resin printer. For a larger resin printer, the 4K screen is fantastic and the print quality is outstanding. The Saturn S printer is twice as large as the Mono 4K because its build area almost doubles. It is ideal for creating intricate pieces of cosplay and models for your home.
Although the Photon 4K will be replaced by the M3 series, it may still be worthwhile. This printer has a 4K monochrome display, which allows for fast printing without losing any detail. This machine is very detailed, even on miniatures.
The Photon 4K, priced at $190, is an excellent entry to resin 3D printing.

Although this is not the best deal, the Mintion Beagle Cam is so fun that it deserves to be mentioned. It is easy to use, simply plug it into an FDM printer’s micro USB slot and you will get amazing timelapse videos which can be shared via the app. You can also use it as a monitor to check the status of your 3D printer anywhere in the world.
Without the right tools and equipment, 3D printing resin can be messy and difficult. This bundle includes everything you need to wash and cure your resin prints. The Mercury is my favorite wash/cure station because it has separate stations that allow you to wash one model and cure the other, which saves you time.
