Snapmaker Original Review
On 3DWithUs you can find a detailed review of the Orignal Snapmaker. Even if the certain machine’s build volume looks like a disadvantage compared to its bigger brother Snapmaker 2.0, Snapmaker Original’s unique and a very strong point is its size. It is hard to find a quality 3D printer that can blend into the bookshelves.
Recently, we noticed that the company promotes Original Snapmaker on
official website specifically for Students and Educators with a significant -20% discount. With a compact and sturdy build, this 3-in-1 combination is a good choice as an entry 3D printer for small and big.
Snapmaker delivers eye-catching, upmarket products. From the packaging and products to the website and campaigns, we feel that quality is the target they aim for. Stay tuned as we have both machines for testing, and there will be more content featuring the machines on 3DWithUs in the near future.
