Been looking to put up a business that requires the use of 3D printers, though anytime soon. I just want to ask your two cents or perhaps some suggestions or recommendations for 3D scanning and printing machines. I'm a complete neophyte in this field though I have some experience working with regular printers and ink cartridges.
My priority areas for choosing a 3D printer would be as follows:
- Affordability - Is there a printer between the $200 and $500 price range? How much do their ink/toner cartridges cost?
- Longevity - How long is such printer likely to last?
- Troubleshooting - Compared to other 3D printers/scanners, how frequently does this printer malfunction? What sort of issues does this printer usually encounter?
- Environment-Friendly - Were there past complaints about the printer's effects on user health? Does it have toxic ingredients within its cartridge(s)?
If you can refer at least 3 models/brands that match the criteria I listed above, I'd be greatly indebted.
Thanks a lot!
