The best 3D printers of 2022

28. 07. 2022.

This year has brought us a lot of new 3D printers and upgrades. Since we are halfway through the year, it's time to present the best 3D printers of 2022. This article will focus on 3D printers for home use and 3D printers for small businesses. We compared the performance and price of each of these printers, tested them and analyze the outcome. Years ago 3D technology was a part of a corporative world, only big industries and corporations could afford a 3D printer, so it's nice to see how the 3D world has expanded. Thanks to companies like Creality and Flashforge it's possible for us to dream of having a 3D printer in our own home.

You are probably wondering what separates more expensive/professional 3D printers from cheaper/domestic ones. Usually, the difference is in a select group of features. These include the build volume, what kind of material are they made of, the type of frames, the varieties of supported filament, the software, and precision,…

In the past, the cheaper 3D printers have had a smaller build volume, while more expensive ones had larger build volumes. With the development of the 3D industry, the companies that produce 3D printers for domestic use were able to find a way of making printers bigger while keeping an affordable price.  They have done the same with the rest of the features; Creality has found a way to bring the top features of professional printers to the domestic ones.

Here are the best printers of 2022:

1. The complete Ender 3 S1 series

3. Flashforge Creator 3 V2 Dual Extruder

Creator 3 V2 is known to be a professional printer, so it's ideal for smaller or bigger businesses. It is popular mostly due to his IDEX system, which stands for the independent dual extruder. With this type of extruder, you can create dual-color printing, and save time since you can also print simultaneously 2 separated models.

Even though it can handle industrial-grade materials, it’s also extremely user-friendly. The printer profiles are ready to work as soon as you take them out of the box. The metal frame and heavy-duty linear bars make the Creator 3 V2 reliable while producing highly detailed prints.

4. Creality CR-30 3D PrintMill

Just by looking at it, you can tell there is something different about this 3D printer. CR-30 3DPrint Mill is distinctive not only for its conveyor-belt style print bed but also for the angled gantry that the print head travels around. Due to his specific design, the 3D printer offers the ability to print unsupported overhangs and to never stop printing. Even if its not this year's model, this printer is timeless, that's why it made it to the list 😊

Belt-style printers are not a new type of technology. The belt has an important impact on the design and printing of these printers. It is important to mention that the XY gantry and motion system is canted: Instead of a flat fixed-area bed that moves perpendicularly away from the print head in the Z-axis, it has a rolling Z-axis that draws the print away. So if you think about it the printing is in a loop and the machine can theoretically print endlessly on this rolling Z-axis.

Most important features:

  • Infinite Z-axis Printing
  • Dual-gear Metal Extruder
  • Stable core XY Structure
  • Rolling conveyor-belt
  • Exclusive slice software
  • Print dimensions: 200 x 170 x infinity mm
  • Smart filament breakage detector
