3 Reasons For for Choosing the Polaroid ModelSmart 250S

Card Reader

The Polaroid ModelSmart 250S has a card reader (as does the Flashforge Creator Pro), but the bq Witbox Go!, the Up! Mini 3D Printer and the XYZ Printing da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3 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 Polaroid ModelSmart 250S has received a Kagoo Score of 86, however the bq Witbox Go! Scored 77, the Flashforge Creator Pro scored 84, the Up! Mini 3D Printer scored 80 and the XYZ Printing da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3 scored 85.

Much Better User Reviews

The Polaroid ModelSmart 250S has an average user review score of 100% based on 1 review, however the Flashforge Creator Pro has an average rating of 90% (based on 35 reviews) and the Up! Mini 3D Printer has an average rating of 66% (based on 7 reviews).

7 Reasons Against for Choosing the Polaroid ModelSmart 250S

Viewing Window

The Polaroid ModelSmart 250S has a viewing window (as do the bq Witbox Go!, the Flashforge Creator Pro and the XYZ Printing da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3), but the Up! Mini 3D Printer does not have this feature. More ...

A viewing window on a 3D printer lets you watch the printer as it works.

Having a viewing window is helpful, since it means you can watch the 3D model as it grows, meaning you can quickly spot any problems or flaws. Plus, they are really cool things to watch work!

More Expensive by £685

The Polaroid ModelSmart 250S is £341 more expensive than the Flashforge Creator Pro, £668 more expensive than the Up! Mini 3D Printer and £685 more expensive than the XYZ Printing da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3.

Less Retailers

The Polaroid ModelSmart 250S is only stocked by 1 retailer, whereas the XYZ Printing da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3 is stocked by 2 sellers. More ...

Fewer numbers of sellers reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also reduces the chances of this 3D printer remaining in stock.
Older by Over Two Years

The Polaroid ModelSmart 250S is two years older than the bq Witbox Go! And 19 months older than the Flashforge Creator Pro. The Polaroid ModelSmart 250S is the same age as the Up! Mini 3D Printer and the XYZ Printing da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3.

Expert Review Rating is Much Worse

The Polaroid ModelSmart 250S's average expert score is only 70%, however the bq Witbox Go!'s is 80% (based on 3 reviews) and the Up! Mini 3D Printer's is 80% (based on 3 reviews).

Worse Brand

Polaroid 3D printers have an average rating of only 71.4%, whereas Flashforge has an average rating of 95% and XYZ Printing has an average rating of 86.8%.

Worse Trusted Reviews Review Score

The Polaroid ModelSmart 250S has only received a Trusted Reviews review score of 70% , whereas the rating of the Up! Mini 3D Printer was 80%.

5 Reasons For for Choosing the XYZ Printing Da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3

3D Scanner

The XYZ Printing da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3 has a 3D scanner, but the bq Witbox Go!, the Flashforge Creator Pro, the Polaroid ModelSmart 250S and the Up! Mini 3D Printer do not have this feature. More ...

Some 3D printers also have an integrated 3D scanner which can scan an original item and then print out a copy.

While rare, 3D scanners are extremely helpful for creating 3D versions of real-world objects: it can scan an object from all sides and create a blueprint, which can then be used by the printer to create a 3D replica.

39% Bigger Maximum Layer Thickness

The XYZ Printing da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3 is a 0.4 max layer thickness 3D printer. That's 0.25mm bigger than the Flashforge Creator Pro and the Up! Mini 3D Printer (0.15mm). 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.

34% Thinner Minimum Layer Thickness

The XYZ Printing da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3 has a minimum layer thickness of 0.1, and so does the Flashforge Creator Pro. That's 0.05mm thinner than the Up! Mini 3D Printer (0.15mm). 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.

£17 Cheaper

The XYZ Printing da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3 costs £447.99, whereas the Flashforge Creator Pro is £791.96, the Polaroid ModelSmart 250S is £1,133.17 and the Up! Mini 3D Printer is £465.00.

More Shops Are Selling it

A greater number of retailers increases the price competition amongst retailers for this 3D printer and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.

4 Reasons Against for Choosing the XYZ Printing Da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3

Viewing Window

The XYZ Printing da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3 has a viewing window, and so do the bq Witbox Go!, the Flashforge Creator Pro and the Polaroid ModelSmart 250S, whereas the Up! Mini 3D Printer does not. More ...

Having a viewing window is helpful, since it means you can watch the 3D model as it grows, meaning you can quickly spot any problems or flaws. Plus, they are really cool things to watch work!

Worse Brand

4 Reasons Against for Choosing the Bq Witbox Go!

Viewing Window

The bq Witbox Go! Has a viewing window (as do the Flashforge Creator Pro, the Polaroid ModelSmart 250S and the XYZ Printing da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3), however the Up! Mini 3D Printer does not have this feature. More ...

A viewing window on a 3D printer lets you watch the printer as it works.

Having a viewing window is helpful, since it means you can watch the 3D model as it grows, meaning you can quickly spot any problems or flaws. Plus, they are really cool things to watch work!

Worse Kagoo Score

The bq Witbox Go! Has received a Kagoo Score of 77, whereas the Flashforge Creator Pro scored 84, the Polaroid ModelSmart 250S scored 86, the Up! Mini 3D Printer scored 80 and the XYZ Printing da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3 scored 85.
