Duo 3D Printer with dual extruder

Dual extruder increase the print quality enabling water-soluble support material or two color prints at the same time.

UK 3D Printer with dual extruders

For any­one seri­ous­ly con­sid­er­ing a 3D print­er the3D Sys­tems Cube 3 in Whitedoes not cost much and is from a known man­u­fac­tur­er. The 3D print­er also looks great from a design stand­point. How­ev­er, the man­u­fac­tur­er has with­drawn from the mar­ket for pri­vate users and 3D Sys­tem does not pro­duce the Cube any­more.
One of our favourite 3D Print­ers with dual extrud­ers is the Flash­forge Dream­er. It is a device for advanced and moti­vat­ed home mak­ers or edu­ca­tion­al insti­tu­tions. The 3D Print­er is chal­leng­ing for new­com­ers, at least when using two mate­ri­als. How­ev­er, the same is true for the oth­er 3D Print­ers. As the only com­pe­ti­tion in this price range is the Wan­hao Dupli­ca­tor 4S This unit is amaz­ing­ly ver­sa­tile with a closed pres­sure cham­ber and a heat­ed plate. The form is reminds us of the Maker­Bot Repli­ca­tor+ or the Flash­forge® Cre­ator Pro Still, our win­ner is the Wan­hao 4S Dupli­ca­tor suc­ceed­ing both alter­na­tives in cost and scope of deliv­ery. The machine is not suit­able for begin­ners due to the heat­ed print bed. It is an opti­mal device for curi­ous or advanced users, as well as uni­ver­si­ties or busi­ness­es.
The Leapfrog Cre­atr HS has a lot of neg­a­tive cus­tomer reviews on the Inter­net and also our part­ners report bad expe­ri­ences. When print­ing with a print head, dimen­sions of 280 x 270 x 180 mm are pos­si­ble and with 2 print heads 28 x 24 x 18 cm as the max­i­mum build vol­ume. This is a lot of space, but no build size helps if the 3D print­er does not work due to errors. There­fore we rec­om­mend on of the 3D Print­ers from the the price range of £500 — £1000.

3D Printer with integrated scanners

The all-in-one solutions combine 3D Printe with 3D Scanner technologies in one device.

Below 1000£

The XYZprint­ing da Vin­ci AiO com­bines dif­fer­ent tech­nolo­gies in one device. The biggest advan­tage are the pos­si­ble appli­ca­tions of the 3D print­er and scan­ner. This allows mak­ers to dig­i­tize objects with the device to after­wards repli­cate it 3 dimen­sion­al­ly as often as nec­es­sary. Nev­er­the­less, there are restric­tions and the tech­nol­o­gy is still not com­plete­ly mature. There­fore, the use of the all-in-one solu­tion is rel­a­tive­ly com­pli­cat­ed and untar­nished. How­ev­er, you receive an all-in-one solu­tion for a rel­a­tive­ly low price enabling var­i­ous exper­i­ments and projects.

More than 2000£

In com­par­i­son to the XYZprint­ing da Vin­ci AiO, the AIO Robot­ics Zeus is a more pro­fes­sion­al device. Still, the mod­el has sim­i­lar errors and dif­fi­cul­ties due to the imma­ture tech­nol­o­gy. For the more expen­sive price you receive bet­ter tech­nol­o­gy with the touch screen and high­er qual­i­ty results.
