Founded in 1994, Amazon is probably the largest international e-commerce company. If we are to believe the brand, it sells everything, “from A to Z”; therefore, she could not leave 3D printers aside. This is how it gradually became one of the largest printer distributors in the world. With the holiday season fast approaching, Amazon is surely one of the best ways to buy your gifts. And why not offer a 3D printer? This is why we have selected the 10 most popular models on Amazon France: FDM or SLA machines , take your pick! Some are even on sale so take advantage of them. They are sorted in alphabetical order.
The Biqu 3D printer B1
The B1 3D printer from Biqu is a machine that looks classic but brings interesting features. Indeed, the print head can be connected via USB, which facilitates the use of the printer. It can be replaced to place a laser there in order to transform the B1 and exploit it in another way. Moreover, the 3D printer is compatible with plastic filaments such as ABS , TPU or PLA. In terms of print dimensions, the B1 makes it possible to manufacture structures up to 235 x 235 x 270 mm. In addition, it has a manufacturing speed of 100 mm/s. The diameter of the nozzle is classic, it is 0.4mm, the same for that of the filament which is 1.75mm. Finally, the B1 from Biqu has a 3.5-inch touch screen that is configurable in 15 languages, including French.
