HomeBuyer's guide 3D printers

3D printers - Product roundups, rankings and curated lists of the best products

We offer useful 3D printers selections, lists and rankings to help our users find the best 3D printer. Our goal is to offer reliable product roundups so our readers can easily get an overview of the best products on a given category. We filter through hundreds of products to select only the best ones.

We prepare those lists of top 3D printers using our metascore rating system, combined with our 3D printing expertise and industry knowledge and whenever possible our in-house tests. We also comb through hundreds of user reviews on websites such as Amazon and community feedback on active 3D printing forums (Reddit, specialized forums, Facebook groups...). We summarize those reviews into actionable insights to make our product listicles as relevant as possible.

There are cases when a metascore isn’t available– for example, professional or industrial products that are difficult to rate fairly. In those cases, our product round-ups cover the top products on the market, ranked in no particular order.
