Best 3D Printer Under $300

If you’re just getting started with 3D printing or you don’t have a very big budget, you probably don’t want to spend $1000 on a new 3D Printer.  The good news is you don’t have to, as it turns out there quite a few good options for 3D printers under $300.

In this article we’re going to list several great 3D printers that will fit within your 300 dollar budget, and some will even leave you enough money for a few rolls of filament.

At the time of writing this article, the Monoprice Delta Mini is the lowest priced 3D printer on this list but that doesn’t mean it’s no good.

With up to 50 micron layer resolution, your prints should look very detailed but the build area is only 110mm x 120mm so you won’t be able to print anything too big.

It’s quite beginner friendly with no assembly required so it’s ready to print out of the box and auto calibration so you won’t have to struggle with bed leveling.

The heat bed and extrusion nozzle can heat to a wide range of temperatures so you can use a wide range of filament with it.

A possible downside with it is that it doesn’t have an on/off button or any other way to turn it off, so when you’re done printing you have to unplug it from the power.  Not a huge deal but it’s just something to keep in mind.

To print from your computer, you can use a wifi or USB connection, or simply use an SD card.
So overall, for the price it is a pretty nice little printer.

The GEEETECH A10 is a bit more expensive than the Monoprice Delta Mini but at the time of writing this article, it’s certainly still within the $300 price range.

With a print resolution of 100-400 microns, your prints should look nice and detailed and with a build area of 220 × 220 × 260 mm, you will be able to print things significantly bigger that with the Monoprice Delta Mini.

This one does have some assembly required, but it is quite a simple 5 step process so it should be nothing to worry about.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t come with auto leveling built in, you can buy an auto leveling sensor if you want auto leveling but it doesn’t have one out of the box.

To print from your computer, it’s compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux but it doesn’t have wifi functionality built in. You can buy this Geeetech 3D WiFi Module if you really want wifi, or you can just use a USB cable or SD card.

So overall, it’s a great quality printer for the price, but it does require a bit of assembly and a few helpful features are sold separately.

At the time of writing this article, the JGMAKER Magic is priced at the same great price point as the Geeetech A10.

With a print resolution of up to 50 microns your prints should look very detailed and with a build area of 220 x 220 x 250 mm you’ll be able to print some pretty big things.

This printer will require a bit more assembly than the previous two in this list as it comes in 8 different pieces, but it should be fairly easy to do.

Unfortunately, the only connectivity option is an SD card reader, not a huge deal but it would be nice if it had USB or Wifi options.

So overall, it’s a simple, nice quality printer at a great price.

The Monoprice Select Mini 3D Printer v2 is priced at a very similar price to the previous two printers on this list at the time of writing this article.

With a print resolution of 100-300 microns your prints should look nice and detailed but with a build area of only 120 x 120 x 120 mm you won’t be able to print anything too big.

The printer comes fully assembled out of the box so you’ll be able to get printing quickly and easily and it even comes with some sample PLA filament and an SD card filled with printable designs to get you started.

It supports Windows, Mac, and Linux with Wifi, USB cable and microSD card connectivity options which makes sending files to the printer very quick and easy.

So, overall it’s a great little printer for the price, but due to the small size, you won’t be printing anything too big.

At the time of writing this article, the Monoprice Maker Select v2 is on the higher end of the $300 price rage but it still quite easily fits the budget.

With a print resolution of 100-400 microns, your prints should look fairly detailed and with a build area of 200 x 200 x 180 mm you should have plenty of space for everything you want to print.

There is a little bit of assembly required but it is only 6 screws and should take no more than 10 minutes to complete.

It also includes some sample PLA filament and a 2GB SD card filled with 3D printable designs to get you started.

It’s compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux but unfortunately, it doesn’t have wifi functionality so you’ll have to use a USB cable or microSD card.

So overall, it’s a decent sized easy to assemble printer with the only significant downside being the lack of Wifi support.

At the time of writing this article, the GIANTARM-GEEETECH A10M is priced at the very top end of the $300 budget but still below it.

With a print resolution of 100-400 microns, your prints will look nice and detailed and with a build area of 220 x 220 x 260 mm you should have plenty of room for anything you want to print.

There is some assembly required but it’s quite quick and easy to do and there are even plenty of videos on Youtube to help you if you get stuck.

It also has the ability to use two different rolls of filament at once allowing for cool features like multicolor printing.

It is compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux computers but it doesn’t have built in Wifi capabilities. You can purchase a Wifi module separately, or just use an SD card.

So overall, it’s a great printer with cool features like multicolor printing, and the only real downside would be the lack of built in Wifi support.

So there you have it, 6 different awesome 3D Printers all below $300.  Of course, none of them are going to be perfect at this price point but they should all do the job just fine.
