Voron & Ratrig – v2.4 Vs V-Core 3 Full Comparison Tested

  • by

The Voron v2.4 and Rat Rig V-Core 3 are two of the most expensive hobby level 3D printers available today. They are both 3D printer kits that you need to build yourself and utilise high quality components to produce some incredible results. In this video I’m going to compare these two printers to find out which is better.

Bias Disclosure

The V-Core 3 was given to me by Rat Rig in exchange for creating the live stream series and review, they provided an affiliate link which gives me a small financial reward for anyone that buys using my voucher code. BTT and Filafarm paid for sponsorship on my Voron 2.4 build series, with small component contributions from Linneo, onetwo3D and Mechporium but I don’t have affiliate links for any of these companies. The sponsor of this video, Filamentive is a filament supplier based in the UK that has no affiliate to Rat Rig or Voron. I also don’t have an affiliate link at the time of filming.
