These Cyber Monday deals make 3D printers affordable - Windows Central

Cyber Monday is a great time to hunt for 3D printers. The prices are low, and the range is always excellent. This year, the selection is broad, featuring dual extrusion printers, resin printers, and great entry-level printers. So jump in and pick one up today!

Entry level: Comgrow Creality Ender 3 Pro

Staff pick

The Ender 3 Pro is a fan favorite across the 3D printing community. It's always a reasonable price for the level of quality it provides, but saving an extra $50+ makes it all the sweeter. This is the perfect printer to get you started on your maker journey.

Connected resin printer: Nova3d Elfin

With a $70 saving, the Elfin is an excellent choice for a resin printer. The software is a little janky, but it has a Wi-Fi connection, something very few resin printers have. You also get that fantastic print quality that comes with resin printing. Any resin printer under $300 is worth looking at.

Dual wielding: Flashforge Dreamer

When looking for a printer for families, I like to recommend ones with a full enclosure like the Dreamer. It keeps prying hands from touching the hot parts and lets them watch from safety. The dreamer is an excellent printer with dual extrusion that gives you a huge variety of options to play with.

The pinnacle of FDM: Ultimaker 2 + 3D printer

Professional Choice

At a certain point in your 3D printing career, you may want to move from being a hobbyist to something more advanced. The Ultimaker 2 + is the printer you should be looking at when that moment comes. It is fantastic at just about everything you could want a printer to do, and It's $500 off today with the code BLKFRI.

Simply amazing: LulzBot Mini 2

Windows Central recommended

With a massive $370 saving, the LulzBot Mini 2 is at a bargain price this Cyber Monday. It is one of the best printers we have ever reviewed and well worth your time. This is a print that requires very little looking after; just press print and go!

Enclosed safety: Monoprice Maker Ultimate 2

Another fully enclosed printer, the Maker Ultimate, is fantastic at printing hard to print materials like ABS. It has a lot of advanced features, too, like a filament runout sensor to make sure your print doesn't get ruined before you can replace the roll. It's an excellent machine with significant savings.

CNC Engraving: Genmitsu CNC 3018-PRO

A great printer companion tool

While not technically a printer, this CNC engraver from Genmitsu will rout, carve, or engrave your plastic and wood creations. Its 3-Axis design is precise and setup is easy.

$190 at Amazon

Join the revolution

If you are starting on this maker journey, then you would do well to pick up the Creality Ender 3 Pro. It's a community favorite that keeps getting better. You will have a huge community to help you if it's your first printer, as well.

Of course, if you want to get into resin printing — and you should, it's incredible — then the Nova3d Elfin may be the way to go. It's a good printer, and the Wi-Fi is a great addition, making it easier to print than ever before.

3D printing can be an expensive hobby all year round, but on Cyber Monday, taking the plunge is cheaper than ever. If you've ever thought about getting into 3D printing, now is a perfect time.
