The 3D printing community is a vibrant and exciting one, and, no doubt about it, YouTube features some of the most informative and entertaining content about 3D printing on the interwebs.
Many new 3D printing YouTubers run successful channels, and many 3D printing creators have grown tremendously – from a few subs to a few thousand in a few months, sometimes way more!
Whether you’re looking for 3D printing tutorials, tips and tricks, product reviews, cool projects, or just general goofing off, from 3D printer unboxing to filament reviews, how-to’s, live streams, and more, there’s always a YouTube channel you can watch.
We spend a lot of time exploring YouTube and searching for great video content on additive manufacturing. So here are three of our favorite channels below, ordered according to the number of subscribers.
