For all the 3D guys on here, what is the best 3D printer right now?
I have been through Formlab 3D printers for the past 6-7 years. Bought 3 Form2, and 1 Form3……., they are decent but not great, pricey and customer service SUCKS!!! Looking to try something new very soon, want to hear opinion and experience from everyone please. Brand, cost, and why?
Looking for printer under $5000
- High resolution 25 micron
- easy to maintain (formlab is a pain in the rear)
- solid customer service (Formlab customer service suck donkey ass
- supply friendly (Formlab product is expensive and hard to get to hold of
Printers everyone is talking about
Kevin Gough reply Tony Mei
I am about to get an Elegoo Saturn as I have had good experiences with the Pro 2.
Tony Mei reply Kevin Gough
let me know how that one turned out. I’m waiting for a few days to make my final decisions
Lucky Tjandra reply Tony Mei
Prhozen 4k or 8k. Definitely avoid anycubic mono x. Anti alias isnt working Tony Mei
Tony Mei reply Lucky Tjandra
Lucky Tjandra I’ll go with PHROZEN this time
Josh Roop reply Tony Mei
Phrozen Sonic Mini 4k or 8k. I don't do particularly large things. Only head sculpts and accessories for 1/6, so those two are perfect for my purposes. Don't have the 8k yet to give a testimonial but the 4k is doing great for me.
Tony Mei reply Josh Roop
Josh Roop sounds great!! Everyone is saying Phrozen mini is the winner. Thank you so much
Angel Morales reply Tony Mei
I use a Phrozen Sonic mini and an Anycubic Photon Mono X. Both are mono screen which greatly enhance the longevity of the printers ability to print before replacement parts are needed. I've never had any issues with Phrozen resin either. It's just great. The mono X gives me greater volume to print with. I've never had issues with it and talking with their customer service was very pleasant. They helped me get it dialed in when I first got it going. I also have their Wash and Cure Plus unit which has made my print process way easier.
Tony Mei reply Angel Morales
Angel Morales sounds good, lots of great feedback on Phrozen. Let me look into 8k

Elegoo printers are decent… printed this statue on my Mars. Could have been improved with some post work… but was lazy and just slapped on paint.
Chris Wooten reply Tony Mei
I would avoid Anycubic as AA does not work well on their machines. I have two Mono X's and they work, just not as well as they should. I also have an epax E10 5k. I hated the molded build platform so bought the metal one. I really like it so far and they have an 8k version releasing later this month. Good customer service too.
Di Jinn reply Tony Mei
Currently, I have a Phrozen Mega8k and the Mini4k (with a Mini8k on its way next month). If you are printing miniatures or parts for 1/6 or smaller figures, the Mini4k would do well. You could opt for the Mini8k for higher resolution but it comes at a higher cost and longer wait/delivery times as they aren’t able to meet early pre-order demand.
Phrozen’s customer service is below average, they can be hard to get ahold of but in my experience they do eventually reply. I think the benefit of getting a Phrozen machine is the community and user support out there. But you have to be willing to tinker with settings and spend time calibrating.
