ANYCUBIC Photon M3 Resin
The Photon S- Upgrade or not?
The original Anycubic Photon is probably the most popular LCD SLA printer on the market, and for good reason. It is affordable, easy to use, and has a great support base online. This is the followup to that machine. There is great debate within the Photon "community" as to which is better- But unlik...

Creality Ender 5 Pro
Incredible value for any tinkerer
After a bunch of research, I settled on an Ender 5 for an entry level printer, and I couldn't be happier. I'm comparing it to a pair of Ultimaker printers at my office (10x the price). Honestly, out of the box, the only thing it really needed is leveling the bed and increasing the extruder steps per...

Ease Of Use

ANYCUBIC Photon M3 Resin
Easy set up and Amazing Prints
This product was purchased to 3d print prototypes for my job and it has been very helpful. I have had several FDM printers and they were sometimes a huge pain to use but this printer is very easy to level and start printing. Their instruction manual was pretty straight forward. I took off a star bec...

Creality Ender 5 Pro
Incredible!
I don't have a lot of experience with 3D printers. I have done a lot of research and decided to purchase a larger non-branded printer that turned out to be terrible. I couldn't keep the bed level, the z-axis kept getting misaligned, and it just lacked the overall features and quality that I expected...
