What 3D experts think of the Snapmaker?
The Snapmaker is a hybrid 3D printer, laser etcher, and CNC cutter all in one machine. This isn't the first hybrid we've tested, and while hybrids are capable of doing all the tasks they advertise, they tend to do so with compromises. But with the Snapmaker, I still found it to be a great little printer.
Performing an admirable job across three distinct functions, the Snapmaker is a maker’s dream tool for small-scale work. There are better individual tools that cost less than the Snapmaker’s $799, but few, if any, that challenge it for 3D printing, laser engraving and CNC carving all in one.
The Snapmaker 3-in-1 3D printer doesn’t pretend to be anything it is not. The presentation and ease of assembly are testament to a company who is clear in their objective, to provide an entry level and affordable solution for those seeking an introduction to not only 3D printing, but the broader world of Makers.
It's the best 3D printer packaging I've seen in my life, and I've used many 3D printers over the last years. The assembly process was really easy. Even a friend found it easy, and she didn’t have any previous experience with 3D printing.
