3D PRINTER COMPARISON:
FUSION3 EDGE VS. RAISE3D PRO2
Raise3D makes a very good looking 3D, consumer-styled 3D printer. Raise3D’s Pro2 model, launched in early 2018, shows the investment of development resources on a flashy touchscreen that attracts a lot of attention.
It may not be clear from their marketing materials that the company Raise3D, originates from China where it manufactures its products.
Take a look a the comparison table below. You’ll see for yourself that the newer Fusion3 EDGE has more features, greater performance and an all around better value than the Pro2 with:
- Larger print area with much faster print times than the Raise3D.
- Ability to purchase filament from multiple vendors and receive optimized settings from Fusion3.
- Designed to print carbon fiber and other abrasive engineering-grade filaments.
- Longer warranty and more robust support.
- Made in the USA
