Many companies claim to have the world’s first or best, it may even be the cheapest or the highest quality. Most superlatives are hard to navigate in a market where everyone is pushing to advance his/her own products. So how do we know if a claim is actually factual?

Melissa Fassbender, editor of Product Design & Development, wanted to know the answer. So, she compiled a list of the top 10 most funded 3D printers on Kickstarter. The printers’ titles appear as they do on their Kickstarter page, superlatives included.

> Read Melissa’s list and find Kickstarter funds raised for each.
