Which 3D Printing Technology is Best for You ?​

The world of 3D printing can be a confusing place. There are myriad types of printer and service available and the differences between them are often complex and difficult to appreciate. When comparing different technologies, simple questions such as “which is faster”, “which produces a better finish”, or “which is cheaper” often produce complex answers and a list of qualifying statements. This can make choosing a 3D printer a daunting and frustrating task. Let's take an in-depth look at six of the major 3D printing technologies available today and try to make the situation a little clearer.


In the last few years SLA (stereolithography apparatus) has had quite an impressive rise, taking a lot of market share away from FDM. Not very long ago this technology was seen as expensive and inaccessible, but since the relevant patents expired, prices have tumbled and now it provides a high level of precision at an affordable price.
