3 Reasons For for Choosing the MakerBot Replicator Mini

3.75mm Bigger Maximum Layer Thickness

The MakerBot Replicator Mini is a 3.9 max layer thickness 3D printer, whereas the Tiertime UP mini 2, the Up! Mini 3D Printer and the Velleman K8200 are all only 0.25mm max layer thickness 3D printers (3.65mm smaller). 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.

Three More Awards

The MakerBot Replicator Mini has received 3 awards from expert review sites, however the 3D Systems CubePro Trio has received no awards, the Tiertime UP mini 2 has received no awards, the Up! Mini 3D Printer has received 1 award and the Velleman K8200 has received no awards.

Better Brand

MakerBot 3D printers have an average rating of 82.7%, however 3D Systems only has an average rating of 73.1%, Tiertime only has an average rating of 59.9%, Up! Only has an average rating of 70.4% and Velleman only has an average rating of 77.9%.

9 Reasons Against for Choosing the MakerBot Replicator Mini

0.13mm Thicker Minimum Layer Thickness

The MakerBot Replicator Mini has a minimum layer thickness of 0.2 (as does the Velleman K8200), however the 3D Systems CubePro Trio, the Tiertime UP mini 2 and the Up! Mini 3D Printer are all 0.15mm min layer thickness 3D printers (0.05mm 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.

Viewing Window

The MakerBot Replicator Mini has a viewing window (as does the Tiertime UP mini 2), whereas the 3D Systems CubePro Trio, the Up! Mini 3D Printer and the Velleman K8200 do 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 MakerBot Replicator Mini has only received a Kagoo Score of 70, but the Up! Mini 3D Printer scored 80 and the Velleman K8200 scored 72.

More Expensive by £1,099

The MakerBot Replicator Mini is £736 more expensive than the Tiertime UP mini 2, £829 more expensive than the Up! Mini 3D Printer and £1,099 more expensive than the Velleman K8200.

Not As Many Stockists

The MakerBot Replicator Mini is only stocked by 1 store, however the 3D Systems CubePro Trio is stocked by 2 shops. More ...

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

The MakerBot Replicator Mini is five months older than the 3D Systems CubePro Trio, three years older than the Tiertime UP mini 2 and 19 months older than the Up! Mini 3D Printer.

Expert Review Rating is Considerably Worse

The MakerBot Replicator Mini only has an average expert score of 69%, but the Up! Mini 3D Printer has an average expert rating of 80% (based on 3 reviews).

User Review Rating is Hugely Worse

The MakerBot Replicator Mini only has an average user score of 74%, but the Velleman K8200 has an average user rating of 100% (based on 1 review).

Worse Zdnet.be Review Score

Zdnet.be only gave the MakerBot Replicator Mini a review score of 70%, however the rating of the Up! Mini 3D Printer was 80%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the Replicator Mini in the UK is £1,294.03 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

3D Systems CubePro Trio 3D Printer Review
3D Systems CubePro Trio 3D Printer Review

2 Reasons For for Choosing the 3D Systems CubePro Trio

0.13mm Thinner Minimum Layer Thickness

3D Systems CubePro Trio is 0.07 min layer thickness, but the MakerBot Replicator Mini, the Tiertime UP mini 2, the Up! Mini 3D Printer and the Velleman K8200 are all 0.2mm min layer thickness 3D printers (0.13mm thicker). More ...

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.

7 Reasons Against for Choosing the Velleman K8200

3.65mm Smaller Maximum Layer Thickness

The Velleman K8200 is a 0.25 max layer thickness 3D printer, whereas the MakerBot Replicator Mini is a 3.9mm max layer thickness 3D printer (3.65mm bigger) and the Tiertime UP mini 2 and the Up! Mini 3D Printer are both 0.15mm max layer thickness 3D printers (0.1mm smaller). 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.

1 Reason For for Choosing the Tiertime UP Mini 2

One Year Newer

The Tiertime UP mini 2 is two years newer than the 3D Systems CubePro Trio, three years newer than the MakerBot Replicator Mini, one year newer than the Up! Mini 3D Printer and three years newer than the Velleman K8200

7 Reasons Against for Choosing the Tiertime UP Mini 2

Smaller Maximum Layer Thickness

The Tiertime UP mini 2 has a maximum layer thickness of 0.35. That's 3.55mm smaller than the MakerBot Replicator Mini (3.9mm) and 0.1mm bigger than the Up! Mini 3D Printer and the Velleman K8200 (0.25mm). 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.

Thicker Minimum Layer Thickness

Tiertime UP mini 2 is 0.15 min layer thickness, and so does the Up! Mini 3D Printer. That's 0.05mm thinner than the 3D Systems CubePro Trio, the MakerBot Replicator Mini and the Velleman K8200 (0.2mm). 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.

Viewing Window

The Tiertime UP mini 2 has a viewing window, and so does the MakerBot Replicator Mini, however the 3D Systems CubePro Trio, the Up! Mini 3D Printer and the Velleman K8200 do not. 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 Tiertime UP mini 2 has only received a Kagoo Score of 64, whereas the 3D Systems CubePro Trio scored 66, the MakerBot Replicator Mini scored 70, the Up! Mini 3D Printer scored 80 and the Velleman K8200 scored 72.

£363 More Expensive

The Tiertime UP mini 2 is more expensive than the Up! Mini 3D Printer by £93 and more expensive than the Velleman K8200 by £363.

Fewer Sellers

Only 1 retailer sell the Tiertime UP mini 2, but 2 stores sell the 3D Systems CubePro Trio. More ...

The smaller the number of stores that stock this 3D printer, the lower the competition amongst stores to keep prices low.
Worse Brand

Tiertime 3D printers have an average rating of only 59.9%, but 3D Systems has an average rating of 73.1%, MakerBot has an average rating of 82.7%, Up! Has an average rating of 70.4% and Velleman has an average rating of 77.9%.

The cheapest price that we could find for the UP mini 2 in the UK is £557.99 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

Up! Mini 3D Printer is only 0.15 max layer thickness, but the MakerBot Replicator Mini is a 3.9mm max layer thickness 3D printer (3.75mm bigger) and the Tiertime UP mini 2 and the Velleman K8200 are both 0.25mm max layer thickness 3D printers (0.1mm 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.

0.08mm Thicker Minimum Layer Thickness

The Up! Mini 3D Printer is a 0.15 min layer thickness 3D printer (as does the Tiertime UP mini 2), whereas the 3D Systems CubePro Trio, the MakerBot Replicator Mini and the Velleman K8200 are all 0.2mm min layer thickness 3D printers (0.05mm thicker). 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 £270

The Up! Mini 3D Printer is £270 more expensive than the Velleman K8200.

Less Retailers

The Up! Mini 3D Printer is only stocked by 1 seller, whereas the 3D Systems CubePro Trio is stocked by 2 shops. More ...

Fewer numbers of shops reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product and also reduces the chances of this 3D printer remaining in stock.
Older by One Year

The Up! Mini 3D Printer is one year older than the Tiertime UP mini 2.

Two Less Awards

The Up! Mini 3D Printer has only received 1 award, whereas the MakerBot Replicator Mini has received 3 awards.

Worse Brand
