Recently I had to do some research on 3D Printers for work to try to get one that would print in a number of different materials but could not find a comprehensive list of 3D printers.

So I asked our team to spend a few weeks researching to find and compare every 3D printer they could find. Here is our comprehensive guide to all the 3D printers available in early 2014.

If you are launching a new 3D printer or if we missed your Printer our apologies please Tweet me @mikenicholls88 or tell us your story here and we will add it to the list, if it looks interesting we will also publish a separate article on it.

Also if there are any materials to be added, errors to be corrected or prices have changed please let us know and we will update immediately.

Unless otherwise specified all costs are in $USD
