Phrozen Sonic Mini 8K Mono DLP Resin 3d Printer
The Mini 8K Mono is a resin DLP 3d printer that has roughly the same size of print area as the other offerings, like Mars or Photon. What it improves is that the X/Y resolution (which comes from the LCD screen resolution) is 8K rather than 2K or 4K. That, and the screen is a monochrome one, rather than a color one. This reduces heat, so you don’t have to replace it nearly as often.

Phrozen Sonic Mighty 8K Mono DLP Resin 3d Printer
This is the larger cousin of the Phrozen Sonic Mini 8K Mono. Like it’s little cousin, it’s an 8K design with a mono screen. It’s an affordable price for a larger print bed machine. Print plate is 20 x 12.5 x 22cm.
Elegoo Mars 4 DLP Resin 3d Printer
This is the improved offering from Elegoo. It boasts more reliability, a 9K screen and a mono screen, meaning that you can get your layer exposure down to 2-3 seconds, saving tons of time. Again, 25 microns z-height for excellent print quality.

Artillery Sidewinder X2 FDM Filament Printer
This is an excellent, direct drive, larger format FDM printer. If you’re making larger items, this is a really solid choice for an FDM printer.

QIDI TECHNOLOGY X-Smart3 FDM Filament Printer
This is a good entry-level printer with many features. It has an enclosure, which shields the print and allows the atmosphere to heat up. This is essential for using other filaments like ABS or TPU. PLA will print without an enclosure.
