As the title said, what's the key point when you want to get your first 3d printer? Speed or others?
I would say price of equipment & supplies vs ROI (return on investment).
I think it really depends on what you're planning to print, how precise & durable the models must be, how frequently the machine will be used.
Very accurate, you look like a pro!!! How many years have you been using the printer?
I am not a 3D print pro. I happen to know a few people who use them, that's all.
Education is key to make an informed decision about what you need and can afford. Watch YouTube videos and read everything you can. No 3D printer can do everything. They all have pros & cons. The ideal printer for one person may be totally wrong for another. Start here:
I'm just starting to get into the world of printing, and as a hobbyist, I'd love to meet more people and talk about printer 3D together, do you have a group?
As a hobbyist, 3D printing is limited by the amount of money you want to shuffle out. But I would probably go to a 3D printer forum to find out, what I can buy.
Professional applications are going further. https://www.paulwurth.com/en/shaping-the-future/additive-manufacturing/, you can google for additive manufacturing.

As mentioned in the question, 2022 is coming to an end, and many new 3D printers have come out. Which are worth paying attention to?
