Parts like nozzles, fans, bearings, and build plates tend to wear out as you use a 3D printer. The life spans of such components are highly dependent on the printer’s build quality, but also the number of print hours. With time, you’ll most likely need to swap out a component or two to keep your 3D printing running as well as it did when it was new.

That being said, many hobbyists buy new 3D printer parts not because their printers broke down, but for the purpose of upgrading the printer.

In both cases, it’s good to know a few trusted sellers which offer 3D printer parts. In this article, we’ll present a list of places that offer a wide range of quality 3D printer parts at reasonable prices.
