    Hello! We need a 3d printer for our small labaratory, its only two person working here. Of course we are looking for a realityvely cheap and quality 3d printer to enchance our everydays work. We would like to spend no more then one thousand euro (maybe two) for a reliable 3d printer which would be useful for our everydays work. Since our lab is very small, one real expert and me working here, we ain't looking for a very expensive equipment. I would be very thankful for any suggestions on 3d printer choise!

    Best I know of on the low end is a Formlabs Form2. $5K for the whole package with post processing . $3500 for the printer. I've had problems with the trays going bad but they are working on a new one. It's open so you can use third party materials, which is nice. Ive used it for models and surgical guides and it does a nice job. Good resolution too.

    I can recommend you nice small 3D Printer by Photocentric.
    You can learn more about it on their website https://www.photocentric3d.com/. It is better than Formlabs and has much better resolution. I have it( Precision LC) in my lab.
    If you are interested we could sell you used from our laboratory for very attractive price. I am going to buy Asiga or something like that.

    The bridges that were printed by Formlabs had to be corrected to the model. And by Photocentric no.
