In an era where 3D printing is poised to revolutionize industries, Functionalize emphasizes the availability of quality 3D printers across a range of price points. As such, the report serves as a valuable resource for readers seeking to explore cost-effective 3D printing solutions.

Each printer featured has undergone rigorous evaluation, considering key factors such as material compatibility, noise levels, extra features, and affordability. This ensures that there are various options for different use cases, especially since no two individuals have the same needs.


As industry data reveals, there are now one million 3D printers around the world. Further proving the device’s popularity, prices have fallen by over 50% in just the last five years. Hence, more and more individuals - be they hobbyists or companies - have access to 3D printing.

Through its new guide, Functionalize seeks to foster the growth of this nascent but fast-growing industry. In all, the volume covers six different products from reputable manufacturers.


The report names the FlashForge Adventurer 3 3D as the “Best Small Printer,” given its petite form factor. The space-saving design, cloud printing capability, and user-friendly interface cater to those who value efficiency and convenience.

Another standout in the guide is the QIDI Tech X-Pro, which was named "Best Machine" in the budget 3D printer category. Its cutting-edge features, including breakpoint printing and dual extruder assembly, make it suitable for those interested in more advanced projects.

Functionalize spotlights the QIDI Tech X-Maker as well, which it recognized as the "Best Value - All-Purpose" 3D printer in the report. As reviewers note, this affordable entry point into 3D printing does not compromise on quality, making it an ideal choice for both novices and intermediate users.
