(3DPrint.com) 3D Hubs trends report Q1 2017 has been released and indicates Ultimaker is still the #1 3D printer manufacturer on 3D Hubs. The Top Print Cities list remains unchanged, though with slower overall QoQ growth, as New York City continues to dominate with 585 3D printing services, followed by Los Angeles and London.
In the category of Highest Rated Desktop 3D Printers, the first two spots on the list remain unchanged with the Original Prusa i3 MK2 and the BCN3D Sigma staying in first and second place with average ratings of 4.87 and 4.85, respectively. The Formlabs Form 2 moved up a spot from fourth to third place. On the industrial 3D printer side, the 16-year-old Vanguard from 3D Systems makes a surprise debut in the number one spot, with last quarter’s highest, the ProJet 3500 HDMax, also from 3D Systems, dropping down to number two. The highest-rated industrial 3D printers are dominated by just a few manufacturers: Stratasys holds five of the top ten spots with four of their Objet printers and their Dimension 1200es FDM printer, while 3D Systems bookends the list with a total of four printers.
