This Graphic Guides You To The Perfect 3D Printer For Your Needs [Infographic]

3D printing has come a long way in a few short years, and if you're interested in getting started with one, you have tons of options to choose from. This graphic from 3D Hubs can help you choose one, based on thousands of hours of tests and tons of reviews.

A few simple questions to gauge how hands-on you are with fixing things, how often you think you'll need to make 3D prints, the level of detail you want (like whether you want to print jewellery, for example,) and whether you're on a budget, and you'll get a recommendation from some of the five best printers on the market right now. They're not the only options, obviously, but they're some of the best, especially for new buyers, and 3D Hubs offers some alternative models to check out below each recommendation.

The whole guide to the best 3D printers on the market is linked below, so if you want to read more about the one that the graphic thinks you might like, you hit that link to read a full review, complete with things like compatible software, material supported, pros and cons, and of course, overall price.
