    Five years go the idea of owning your own desktop 3D printer was something dreamlike. They were expensive, with the cheapest DIY being around $350 and the next jumping to $530, and pre-built printers would have you shelling out at least $700. Fast forward to 2016 and Chinavasion have made a DIY 3D printer that will start at around $200USD. This is largely due to the recent boom in 3D printing, which has created a new market and opened new opportunities for industry specialists.

    Thanks in part to the fantastic-ness of the internet, and its open source community of developers and designers, 3D printers have reached greater heights.

    “This has resulted in precision 3D printers becoming radically more affordable,” explained Ms. Rose Li, PR Manager at Chinavasion.

    China’s advanced 3D printing manufacturers have been quick to respond by bringing precision 3D printing within the bounds of affordability for students, amateur engineers and designers.


    The wholesale electronics company, Chinavasion, now has two 3D printers that are capable of printing with LA, ABS, Wood-Polymer, Nylon, Flexible PLA and PVA filaments. The DIY printer kit has a print volume of 220x220x250, and is marketed as being suitable for artists, designers, hobbyist and classrooms who want the added enjoyment and achievement of assembling their own 3D printers. Whether it’s for education or for entertainment, it is a great way to get kids and creative minds involved in the world of 3D printing.

    Their pre-built model is a little pricier (although it’s on sale for the next 6 hours at $280), and only has a print volume of 150x150x150. But if you don’t want to worry about messing up the DIY version, it is worth the extra cash.


    “These 3D Printers make for great educational tools for classrooms and can help designers visualize and demonstrate products by printing precision scale models and replicas in a range of materials, so they are very versatile”, said Ms Li.

    “It’s clear that the 3D Printing revolution isn’t going to slowdown any time soon and Chinavasion sees a clear role to play going forward, by providing quality affordable 3D printers to fulfill the demand of this growing market.”

    With over ten years experience supplying the latest electronic gadgets, Chinavasion has built a strong reputation online for its high quality products, fast shipping times and world-class customer service.
