Desktop 3D printers are generally smaller, more affordable, and designed for personal or small-scale use. Smaller scale 3D printers may have limitations in print size, material compatibility, and resolution compared to their industrial counterparts. Industrial 3D printers, on the other hand, are built for high-volume production, offer a wider range of materials, and often feature more advanced 3D printing technology.
3D printing technology covers a wide range of suitable materials, including thermoplastics like PLA and ABS, metals like brass and steel, resins, ceramics, and even some specialized materials like flexible filaments. The material choice often depends on the 3D printer type and the intended application of the printed object. Be sure to check the compatbility between your 3D printer and material before purchasing.
Regular maintenance is essential for the longevity and optimal performance of 3D printers. This includes cleaning the print bed, ensuring the nozzle is free of obstructions, calibrating the printer for accuracy, and periodically checking for firmware updates.
