We talk a lot about 3D printing over at Windows Central and have spent hundreds of hours using multiple printers and accessories to bring you the best 3D printing deals around. This Prime Day Amazon has a lot of 3D printers at discount prices, so we've rounded up the very best here.

Snapmaker: Snapmaker 3-in-1 3D Printer (3D Printing/CNC Carving/Laser Engraving)

Staff pick

We've used the Snapmaker a lot and enjoy the all-in-one aspect of it. If you are looking at making as a hobby, not just 3D printing, then having a CNC mill, laser cutter, and 3D printer all rolled into one is a great starter option.

From $640 at Amazon

Solid framing: Monoprice Maker Ultimate

When the Maker Ultimate first arrived it was expensive, but printed amazingly well, especially in ABS. Now the price has dropped this low it's well worth picking up. You can even build an enclosure for it for about $20. Super simple.

From $384 at Amazon

Dremel dreaming: Dremel Digilab 3D40 Idea Builder

This Dremel is quickly becoming a favorite for schools due to its reliability and the safety its enclosure gives you. It's simple to use and allows you to use a lot of different materials.

From $840 at Amazon

Dream cheaper: Dremel Digilab 3D20 3D Printer, Idea Builder

If you can't afford to drop the $900 for the Dremel 3D40 but want the same sort of features, then the 3D20 may be for you. It has a smaller build plate but a lot of the same features as the 3D40, including the safety of an enclosure.

From $420 at Amazon

Yummy printing: WiibooxSweetin Intelligent Sliver Home DIY 3D Desktop Food Chocolate Printer

I haven't managed to try this printer personally though I have seen it working. It's such a cool idea to have 3D printable food — imagine chocolate in any shape you want! Delicious.

From $960 at Amazon

large scale deltas (3D Printing): Monoprice Delta PRO 3D Printer

When you want to make fast, accurate, and tall models, you really should have a delta printer. The Delta Pro from Monoprice has a large build volume and some advanced features like a self-leveling glass bed. It looks incredible, and it's $250 off.

From $950 at Amazon

Entry model for kids: Monoprice 133820 Voxel 3D Printer

The Voxel is purpose-built to make 3D printing as simple as possible. Everything is plug and play, and the interface is designed with younger people in mind. If the result is more important than the journey for you, this is a good machine.

From $320 at Amazon

Large scale: TRONXY XY-3 3D Printer Pro

The Tronxy printer does not mess around. With 310-by-310-by-330mm of print space, the Tronxy can be used to make huge scale prints for an extremely low price. Buy this if you are looking to get into cosplay or want to take on other large scale jobs.

From $232 at Amazon

Massive scale: ANYCUBIC Chiron

As your build volume gets bigger, the technology becomes harder to make. Anycubic has done a great job at making a monster with 15.75-by-15.75-by-17.72 inches that can print full-size helmets with ease. These printers take patience to get right, but when you succeed, they are worth their weight in gold.

From $400 at Amazon

Community favorite: Creality Ender 3

The Creality Ender 3 was already a great deal for anyone with the time to get it tuned in, but now it's a steal for Prime Day. Get one, heck, get two, and start 3D printing straight away!

From $185 at Amazon

Multi material: Moasic Palette 2

While not strictly a 3D printer, the Palette 2 makes the list because of how great it is. The device allows you to print with five different colors on a printer designed to only print with one, and it does it effortlessly.

From $500 at Amazon

All the things you'll need

3D printing isn't just about the printers; you will need a lot of different accessories to really make your prints a success. Below we have rounded up some of the best Prime Day deals, as well as essentials for your printing experience.

Printing in your hand: 3Doodler Create Licensed Star Trek 3D Printing Pen Set with 75 Plastic Strands, Star Trek Edition (Blue)

The 3Doodler pen isn't just a fun toy; it can be extremely helpful for fusing two printed parts together. Instead of using glue, you can use this to make one solid part.

From $19 at Amazon

Beautiful material: Amolen 4 special PLA

There a lot's of cheap, simple filament out there but sometimes it's nice to try something a little fancier. This collection of four small rolls will give you a taste of the beautiful prints you can make.

From $30 at Amazon

The basics: Enotepad black PLA

This is the cheap, simple filament I mentioned before. You will use a lot of this, so the cheaper, the better. This PLA is pretty good, and at $15 it's worth buying four rolls to get you started.

From $15 at Amazon

You are gold: Amolen Gold

Everything looks better in gold, especially models. I like this filament a lot for printing superhero busts and for trophies I print for the kids. It saves me having to spray them gold.

From $21 at Amazon

Upgrades: Metal extruder for Ender 3

The Ender 3 is incredibly cheap this Prime Day but a few upgrades will make it a much better machine. This metal extruder gear will help make your prints better.

From $11 at Amazon

Flexibility: Sunlu TPU

While this TPU has had its original price inflated, it's Prime Day price is still good. Use TPU if you want to make flexible prints like phone cases or GoPro mounts.

From $18 at Amazon

Stick to it!: Gluestick pack of three

Glue sticks are invaluable to help you hold your 3D prints to the print surface. These are water-soluble glue sticks so a little warm water will get them off your print surface. They are especially helpful for PLA and ABS I have found.

From $8 at Amazon

Careful Careful: Buildtak model remover

There are cheaper scrapers out there sure, but the Buildtak model remover is perfect for getting prints off the bed cleanly. The handle allows the blade to be perfectly flat.

From $19 at Amazon

Easy filing: 1800/240 emery boards

This is a trick I learned from Adam Savage of tested.com. These little nail files are perfect for smoothing out 3D prints when you use the 180 grit side to start then finish the smoothing with the 240 grit side. They even come in 100 count packs.

From $6 at Amazon

Sooo pretty: 3D Printer Silk Rainbow Multicolor PLA

Ok, this one isn't a part of the Prime Day deals but my word, it is a lovely looking filament. You could make so many awesome things with this.

From $26 at Amazon

High end: Volcano Color changing filament

This stuff is amazing. It's only a small roll, so make sure you have your printer dialed in before you use it, but when you do, make something amazing! It changes color in the heat!

From $15 at Amazon

Good deals all round

All of these deals make 3D printing more accessible for everyone, but having the Snapmaker at such a low price feels criminal. It is an excellent machine even when it is $200 more.

If you already have a printer and want to take it to the next level, then the Palette 2 is a great choice this Prime Day, making multicolor and multi-material prints possible.
