The 10 best all-in-one (AIO) 3D printers in 2019


What’s an all-in-one 3D printer? Find out here which functionalities are available on all-in-one 3D printers. We also scoured the market to find the best all-in-one 3D printers available for you today.

What are the best all-in-one 3D printers in 2019?

Like a modern Swiss Army knife, all-in-one 3D printers (a.k.a. AIO 3D printers, multifunctional 3D printers, or multitool 3D printers) feature 3D scanning, laser engraving and cutting, vinyl cutting, drawing, and more. Today, AIO 3D printers can be multi-purpose fabrication tools for makers, professionals, businesses and hobbyists alike.

However, since AIO 3D printers are still relatively recent, only a few of them are available for consumers. That is why we decided to take a closer look at the multitool 3D printer market and list the best all-in-one 3D printers currently available.

We only included multifunctional 3D printers that cost less than $7,000 (though most are under $2,000) and are available for consumers, as there are many industrial all-in-one 3D printers that can cost several hundred thousands of dollars.

If you’re looking for something cheaper, check out the best FFF 3D printers under $300 or our list of budget resin 3D printers.

All-in-one 3D printer functionalities

A range of functionalities can be included in all-in-one 3D printers: CNC milling, laser cutting and engraving, paste extrusion, and more.

Main functionalities for AIO 3D printers

CNC milling

Computer numerical control (CNC) milling is the removal of material through a specific process that uses rotary cutters, performed by computer-controlled machines that are also known as machining centers or stations. CNC milling, a process similar to drilling and/or cutting, is considered subtractive manufacturing (which is the opposite of the 3D printing additive manufacturing method).

Paste extrusion (syringe extruder)

Paste extrusion is the process of simply pushing any paste-type filament such as PVC foil, EVA foam, machining wax and even chocolate (food 3D printing!) through a specialized tube and nozzle.

Laser cutting and laser engraving

Laser cutting, a technology usually used in industrial manufacturing applications, is the process of using a laser to cut materials. Laser cutting technology is quite simple; a computer-controlled machine directs either the laser beam or the material that needs to be cut. Laser cutting, as a feature in AIO 3D printers, is usually capable of cutting different kinds of plastics as well as soft metals.

Laser engraving is the process of using laser technology to engrave an object. When it comes to all in one 3D printers, the materials that can be laser engraved are usually plastics, wood and soft metals such as aluminum.

Most of the time laser engraving and laser cutting are considered as one functionality, because the laser toolhead is often the same one used for both tasks.

Other functionalities

Some of the all-in-one 3D printers included in this article feature other functionalities besides the ones mentioned above. Some of these functionalities include:

  • Drawing: a writing instrument such as a pen or marker can be attached to a 3D printer’s toolhead in order to create automated (or CNC) drawings.
  • Hot-wire cutting: the 3D printer is equipped with a wire made of stainless steel, ideal for cutting foam and similar materials.
  • Vinyl cutting: a technique where a drag knife, also known as a “craft cutter”, is used to cut out shapes or letters from thin, adhesive plastic (ie. for stickers) through adjustable-depth cutting.

Discontinued multitool 3D printers

Various all-in-one 3D printer manufacturers have closed down or stopped manufacturing their products. Other were Kickstarter projects that didn’t make it on the market. We listed them here (below) for users that may be wondering why a certain printer or brand isn’t in our main list.

AIO Robotics Zeus 3D printer and scanner combo

Zeus, a 3D printer and 3D scanner combo made by the US manufacturer AIO Robotics, was one of the most popular AIO 3D printers on the market. However, AIO Robotics no longer manufactures any 3D printers.

ATOM Atom 2.5 EX 3D Printer Kit

The Atom 2.5 EX was a professional delta 3D printer with a laser engraver. ATOM had announced an Atom 3 in 2018, but it isn’t possible to purchase 3D printers on their website anymore.

FABtotum Core PRO

The FABtotum Core PRO was capable of CNC milling, laser cutting cardboard and paper and laser engraving. This 3D printer is no longer available, as the brand is in liquidation.

MAG iCreatum

This multifunctional 3D printer was supposed to feature 3D printing, ink plotting, and other functionalities for only $300. Kickstarter suspended their campaign in 2017 as the project violated their rules.

MakerArm, the ultimate 4-in-1 3D printer for fablabs?

The MakerArm started as a Kickstarter project and managed to gather over $430,000 from 340 backers in November 2015. After unexpected rises in component costs, the MakerArm team decided to refund their backers. It’s unclear if a new product will still emerge in the future.
