Questions Covered in the Review:
What printer should I buy? That is one of the most frequently asked questions we get! Once you have decided to take the plunge and buy your own 3D printer, your head may spin as you weigh the options and ever-growing choices of 3D printers on the market. The multitude of features and benefits that differentiate each printer mean that there is no one printer that is a perfect fit for all users. So the question is very hard to answer, because it depends on WHAT kinds of things you want to print, your skill level, and your budget.
We first saw the Polar 3D printer when it debuted at CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in January, 2015. Its open design, circular build plate, and rotational movement immediately caught our attention. Fast forward to August, and Polar 3D submitted one of their printers to WTFFF?! for a formal review. We have now spent a considerable amount of time over the course of more than a month getting to know and understand this unusual but impressive 3D printer. After weeks of working closely with the printer, we interviewed William Steele, CEO of Polar 3D, and the chief engineer/creator of the Polar 3D printer.
