3 Reasons For for Choosing the Dremel 3D2001

Card Reader

The Dremel 3D2001 has a card reader (as do the Flashforge Finder and the XYZ Printing da Vinci Jr. 1.0), but the Monoprice Fully Enclosed 150 and the Tiertime UP mini 2 do not have this feature. More ...

Some 3D printers have an integrated card read that will accept a standard sized memory card.

This allows the 3D printer to read data on memory cards, which are an easy way of transferring blueprints to the device.

Better Kagoo Score

The Dremel 3D2001 has received a Kagoo Score of 88, however the Flashforge Finder scored 87, the Monoprice Fully Enclosed 150 scored only 62, the Tiertime UP mini 2 scored only 60 and the XYZ Printing da Vinci Jr. 1.0 scored 85.

Moderately Better Expert Reviews

The Dremel 3D2001 has an average expert review score of 86% based on 3 reviews, however the Flashforge Finder has an average rating of 82% (based on 7 reviews).

6 Reasons Against for Choosing the Dremel 3D2001

Hugely Smaller Maximum Layer Thickness

Dremel 3D2001 is only 0.1mm max layer thickness, but the Monoprice Fully Enclosed 150, the Tiertime UP mini 2 and the XYZ Printing da Vinci Jr. 1.0 are all 0.4mm max layer thickness 3D printers (0.3mm bigger). More ...

The maximum layer thickness is the maximum thickness of a layer that the 3D printer can produce. These layers are printed one on top of each other to make up the finished 3D model.

A bigger layer thickness means that each layer will be both thicker and stronger, leading to a more stable final piece. However the thickness means that it won't be quite as detailed, and will look more bulky.

A Lot Thicker Minimum Layer Thickness

The Dremel 3D2001 is a 0.1mm min layer thickness 3D printer (as does the Monoprice Fully Enclosed 150), whereas the Tiertime UP mini 2 and the XYZ Printing da Vinci Jr. 1.0 are both 0.02mm min layer thickness 3D printers (0.08mm thinner). More ...

The minimum layer thickness denotes the minimum thickness of a layer that the 3D printer can produce. These layers are printed one on top of each other to make up the finished 3D model.

A smaller layer thickness means that the individual layers will all be smaller, but there will be more of them making up the object. This means that while the object may not be quite as hardy, it will be far more details, since it's made up of far more layers.

More Expensive by $498

The Dremel 3D2001 is $402 more expensive than the Flashforge Finder, $446 more expensive than the Monoprice Fully Enclosed 150, $48 more expensive than the Tiertime UP mini 2 and $498 more expensive than the XYZ Printing da Vinci Jr. 1.0.

Older by Over Three Years

The Dremel 3D2001 is three years older than the Flashforge Finder, three years older than the Monoprice Fully Enclosed 150, 16 months older than the Tiertime UP mini 2 and 21 months older than the XYZ Printing da Vinci Jr. 1.0.

Worse Brand

Dremel 3D printers have an average rating of only 65.4%, whereas Flashforge has an average rating of 95%, Monoprice has an average rating of 67.9% and XYZ Printing has an average rating of 77%.

2 Expert Review Sites Gave It a Lower Review Score

Ichip.ru and Chip.de both gave the Dremel 3D2001 a lower review score. More ...

Ichip.ru: Dremel 3D2001 = 78% vs Flashforge Finder = 79%

Chip.de: Dremel 3D2001 = 80% vs Flashforge Finder = 81%

The cheapest price that we could find for the 3D2001 in the US is $847.00 but in total we found only 1 price for it.
