In the last few years, 3D printing has become far cheaper overall.

This is partly due to the RepRap movement as being able to print your own printer instead of purchasing it reduces costs. In addition, the rise of FDM as a cheap alternative to 3D printing has led to a number of Kickstarter projects selling 3D printers as cheap as $150.

Since most people are not big businesses or manufacturers that need large scale printers, 3Dnatives selected the following range of 3D printers for under €1,000 which are best for consumer use. You can compare them below on a range of specifications.
