“The SparkMaker FHD 3D printer is the upgraded version of its original machine, the SparkMaker. Though marketed as an SLA machine, it’s technically an LCD 3D printer.

The first SparkMaker, a sub-$300 machine, was meant to be disruptive. And, for the most part, it did not live up to the hype. However, this newer iteration looks more promising, boasting some upgraded features and sturdier materials. It’s also similarly priced at just under $320, depending on where you purchase it from and has a handy app to track print progress and select print models from the SD card.”
