Best 3D Printer: MINGDA 3D Printer Buyer’s Guide

Best 3D Printer: MINGDA 3D Printer Buyer’s Guide


As we know all-too-well from reporting on the dozens of new 3d printers that hit the market every few months, selecting and buying the best 3D printer is never a one-size-fits-all process. That’s because there is no ‘best 3D printer’—no matter how highly reviewed or how many awards a particular model has picked up, every 3D printer comes with its own pros and cons depending on how it will be used.


If you want to buy a 3D printer but don’t know where to start, or maybe you’ve been eyeing a few models online but can’t bring yourself to hit ‘checkout’, we’ve assembled a 3D Printer Buyer’s Guide to help clear through some of different 3D printer models in MINGDA and help you decide which model is best for you.


Before starting, it’s important to know what features and properties are most important for your making needs. A schoolteacher wanting to introduce their classroom to the principles of STEM will probably prioritize safety, plug’n’play, and low-cost, whereas a mechanical engineer needing custom 3D printed prototypes will look for higher resolution, speed, and even multi-material capabilities.


For this reason, we’ve given you the list into a few broad categories, and included key technical specs. Below are some of the most important things to consider when deciding to buy mingda 3d printer:


3D Printer Technology: The majority of consumer 3D printers can be divided into two main categories: FDM (fused deposition modeling, also known as FFF) technology, and SLA (sterelithography). With FDM, plastic filament is heated and passed through an extruder, which deposits it layer by layer into a 3D shape that hardens as it cools. MINGDA Technology Co., Ltd is focusing on FDM technology, which is generally quite affordable, and allows for a range of materials.


Build Volume: Most desktop 3d printers are quite limited in their size, but for household projects, this usually isn’t a problem. Here MINGDA has provided many models of our MD series 3D printers in different build volumes for you to make a choice. Also, MINGDA has R&D ability which means that we can make a custom 3d printer machine for you.


3D Printing Materials: FDM 3d printers most commonly use PLA or ABS filaments. PLA is biodegradable and generally quite affordable, but it can be brittle and break easily. On the contract, ABS is more hard, yet requires a heated bed to print. Other FDM-friendly materials include nylon, bronze and copper composites, wood-based filaments etc. Glad to tell you that most essential filaments are available to our MD series 3D printer and if needed, we can also provide you a machine adapted to other filaments.


Speed and Precision: MINGDA MD series 3D printers: 1. Speed: 0-200mm/s (Adjustable, 50-150mm/s recommended) 2. Precision: 0.05-0.3mm. Many people regard that the speed of a consumer 3D printer is slow. The majority range from around 50-100mm/s, but as the technology advances, so too will the speed. At the same time, many 3D printers are capable of achieving quite high precision, from 0.01mm to 0.5mm (keep in mind that the lower the actual number, the higher and better the resolution will be).

Some 3D printer models give users the option of increasing the speed by producing thicker layers, thereby reducing the resolution. The acceptable trade-off between speed and resolution will entirely depend on your needs as a maker, so keep that in mind when choosing your 3D printer.


Others: Multiple extruders, heated beds, closed frames, USB or WiFi, DIY Kits…There is so much more to take into consideration before you buy a 3D printer. Do you want to print in multiple colors or materials? Then you’ll need a dual-extruder model but machine itself would be not very stable. 3D printing with ABS or other specialty materials often requires a heated and/or enclosed print bed, both for consistency and safety.
