There are now more options than ever when choosing a 3D printer, but if you're new to this popular printing revolution then it can be hard to know how much you should be paying, whether you want one of the best 3D printers for beginners or intermediates. In this guide, we'll provide ur expert advice to help you make an informed choice. 

If you want to get a great deal, then there's no better time than Christmas and the January sales to shop for a 3D printer. If last year is anything to go by, we expect to see $100 or so knocked off many models. That means you can expect any price indications we give in this piece to drop even further during the sales event. During Amazon Prime Day 2023 we saw discounts of 30% and higher, so we expect to see the same during the end of the year.
