3D printer costs are one of the most common considerations when selecting a printer that’s right for you. Pricing is an important metric but it can be difficult to understand considering the range and type of 3D printers available on the market.
While there are many types of 3D printers on the market, we’ll focus on FDM technology in this article.
So really, how much does a 3D printer cost? 3D printer cost can vary depending on a number of factors like the type, build, material compatibility, size, features, etc. 3D printers are available for as low as $149 and as high as $1,000,000. While this is an incredibly wide range, it can help to first look at your applications, and your wants and needs when picking the class of printer that’s best suited to you. We have simplified the classification of the 3D printers into five categories and have identified the ideal audience and applications for each category.
Let’s get down to business and understand how much a 3D printer costs.
