Best 3d printer model to start printing with plastics?

Best 3d printer model to start printing with plastics?

(OP)
Could somebody recommend a good 3d printer model to print with plastics in multiple colors?
Not for mass production, just for using as a hobby.
Do any of these come with a 3d scanner?

RE: Best 3d printer model to start printing with plastics?

Is this entry level? Budget $2k scanner extra . Look at : https://ultimaker.com/ for range of materials and options. Colours limited.

This field is in its infancy and there are plenty of low cost FDM machines pretty much the same. I have a Replicator and cant recommend it.


Much more money gets you better quality of machine and build.



RE: Best 3d printer model to start printing with plastics?

If you want to print with multiple colors in the same part, then look for printers with multiple extruders ... That's a feature I wish I had in my printrbot+ (3 year old machine)

(OP)
Does that Divinci 3d printer use a proprietary material for printing or can you use any standard 3d printing plastics with it?

The field has been in it's infancy for over twenty-five years. winky smile
