Which 3D printer is right for you? The world of desktop 3D printing is rapidly expanding and new companies and printer models are emerging daily. With so many options to choose from, how do you decide which machine is right for you?


The second annual MAKE Ultimate Guide to 3D Printing is here to help, with reviews of 23 printers currently on the market. In this year's testing, we assembled a diverse team of expert reviewers and put these machines through a battery of tests to determine the standouts. We focused on the printer's end users and made recommendations based on goals, budget, and usage setting.


This issue delves into:

  • Reviews of 23 3D printers
  • 3D scanners and filament extruders
  • Cool, useful, and specialized 3D printed applications
