You only need to decide if filament or resin 3D printer is best for your needs before you can get into our hand-picked deals.
FDM filament printing is the easiest for beginners. However, resin can be used to print miniature figurines with fine details and a smoother finish. If you have patience and a well-ventilated area, SLA/DLP printing is possible for those who are willing to take on a few more steps.

Cyber Monday FDM 3D printer deals
Fused deposition modelling (FDM) refers to melting colored filament one layer at time and creating objects with a 3D Printer. You can move up to make almost anything if your plan is well thought out. Some models may have edges that are too high above the baseplate. They will not be able to float and will require support. Most software that is compatible with these printers can cut your models quickly and create detachable scaffolding which you can then remove.
The maximum size for each model is limited by the printer’s print limit. However, you can divide your creations into smaller pieces to make larger objects like armor and helmets. FDM 3D printers, such as the Creality Ender 3 V2, are ideal if this is what your goal is. It retains strength even in large models and can print different patterns. A deal on Overture 1.75mm PLA filament is a great way to get started in the hobby.
Cyber Monday SLA/DLP 3D printer deals
Stereolithography/digital light processing (SLA/DLP) is an equally wordy name for creating 3D models with liquid resin that cures over light. This is a great way to print miniatures or models for board games and achieve more detail. Resin printing has a downside. It is toxic and requires a well-ventilated place to place a printer.
For a resin finish, washing your printed models is necessary. However, it should be done with care even at this stage. It is not as difficult as it sounds, and anyone can learn how to do it. As long as they have adequate space, the process is safe. The build plates for resin 3D printers are often smaller than FDM printers. This means that you won’t make larger models and the curing process can cause prints to take longer than filament. Siraya Tech Easy resin can be purchased at a discount to get your chosen SLA/DLP Printer started.
