Anycubic Photon S
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 3 Max
Just what I needed!
I purchased this printer as an extra so that I can create bigger items. It's like the best of both worlds between the Ender 3 Pro and CR 10.

I have extensive experience with FDM (aka rigid filament) printers and the major limitation of FDM technology is its inability to print smaller delicate parts.

Creality Ender 3 Max
Purchase Advice Megathread: What To Buy, Who To Buy It From, And More, In April 2021
Cr 20 pro: This printer my mom currently uses, I love that they added the bltouch and the design looks quite nice, Problem that i found with the design is that its a bit harder to place upgrade on the frame,. Ender 3 v2, Nice upgrade of the ender 3, Looks quite nice visually aswell and i like the fact of the colour screen and the the power supply is at the bottem. Ender 3 max: Bigger build volume, pretty nice updates with the added yellow springs and metal extruder/filament sensor. screen is ok but i dont really like that the power supply is in on the printer and not out of side, But i should be able to change that right?.
