3D Printers getting obsolete so quickly

Post by Macaber8 »

Hi,

I am new to 3D printer community. I spend my spare time last week researching 3D printers and find CoreXY 3D printers are, in my opinion, the best plotform for FDM 3D printing. It is super fast, rigid, comes with automatic bed leveling, tool changer, everything I want for less than $2000. On top of that, I see there is potential for 6 axis 3D printing on HevORT build. These make HevORT so much superior than other regular non-corexy printers. I see the only worthy competitors are RatRig, maybe Voron, but I think they are still not very popular comparing to prusa or maybe Makergear M2 back in 2016.

I don't understand, for most of these existing businesses making 3D printers, how is it OK for them still building other kind of "not as good" printers and still in business? For any DIYer, we can probably build our own HevORT within 2-3 months of our spare time. Why couldn't the professionals keep up and build better printers at work?
