Geeetech A10 (Starts from ₹15000)

Shenzen-based manufacturer Geeetech cloned Ender3 in just three months to provide the Geeetech A10, and the price for an affordable 3D printer now has dropped even further. The Geeetech A10 has attempted to make an Ender3 clone which gives slightly bigger build volume, easier bed leveling (manual), a retro calculator type LCD screen not relevant to print quality, and one of the most advertised and hyped alternative to Anycubic’s Ultrabase- “Super Plate” that makes the print bed more adhesive when it’s hot and extremely easy to remove the prints once the bed is cold.

However, A10 comes out as a strong affordable entry-level 3D printer considering its build volume and good printing specs like its competition with Ender3 (build volume-220 x 220 x 250 mm), Monoprice Mini Select (build volume- 120 x 120 x 120 mm), a Prusa i3 MK3 (build volume- print volume of 250 x 210 x 200mm), and the Creality CR-10 (build volume- 300 x 300 x 400mm).
