If you want production quality out of the machine or you are looking to print small models with high detail then we would suggest a resin, SLA/DLP printer Stereolithography/Dark light projection (SLA/DLP) printers are, essentially, 3D printers that print using light to cure liquid resin into layers. The cheaper versions use an LCD display to shine a UV image into the resin, which cures it into a solid layer. The print bed then rises up slightly to let the next layer cure.
