Never mind waiting for Black Friday at the very end of November, there are plenty of bargains out there already this month, and here’s a real tempter for those looking for a 3D printer capable of producing larger-sized objects.
Over at Gearbest, the Artillery Sidewinder-X1 has been reduced from its normal retail price of $568 down to $379 for the US model, or £445 down to £297 for those in the UK (ordering EU stock).
That represents a 33% discount, and this printer was already competitively priced for what it offers before that reduction.
The X1 is capable of printing objects up to a size of 300 x 300 x 400mm, and it’s very quiet in operation (buyer reviews seem to agree on this), plus it comes with some nifty touches such as a touchscreen control panel (which is great to see at this price level).
This is also a novice-friendly 3D printer which is very easy to setup, by all accounts (95% of the device is preassembled), and that never hurts. Build quality is reportedly good, again going by reviews, as is the print quality anecdotally.
And for just a few hundred notes, this certainly seems like a tempting proposition for those who might want to dip their toes into 3D printing waters.
