Should you buy a 3D printer on day one?

This story is part Amazon Prime DayCNET’s guide to everything you need to know and how to find the best deals.

Short answer: Yes, Prime Day is one of the few times of the year when many brands of 3D printers are available at a substantial discount. This is potentially a good time to choose your first printer or start adding additional printers to create a print farm.

While there are always budget options for 3D printers on Amazon, you might want to wait until Prime Day on July 12 and 13 before jumping into the hobby. Big name brands like Elegoo, Anycubic and FlashForge often offer deep savings on the most popular printers as well as deep discounts on the stock they try to clear.

While there are Prime Day discounts, make sure the savings you get are real. More than one company raises prices on or just before Prime Day just to cut it down and call it “savings.”

In addition to making recommendations, we also track the prices of these products to offer the best advice for Prime Day. Our 3D printer offers The page will contain the latest deals, so keep an eye out as we get closer to Prime Day.

Which 3D printer should you buy?

Many top brands will likely cut prices this Prime Day, and the model you buy will depend on the type of 3D printer you need. Most sales will focus on the more common FDM printers – these create 3D prints from rolls of plastic filament, rather than liquid resin – so you’ll see the biggest discounts there.

Anycubic recently announced a whole new range, so we can expect its older models like the Anycubic Vyper to have a good sale price this year, as well as its older Mega series. The Vyper is one of CNET’s favorite printers and is currently on top for the best 3d printer of 2022so any discount on it will be worth your time.
