By now you’ve undoubtedly heard of 3D printing — a relatively new additive manufacturing process that allows you to create any object you desire. But unless you keep up with the latest technology trends or own one of these amazing machines yourself, you probably don’t know much about it. Thankfully there is one company out there that not only wants to make 3D printing easy for you, they also want to make it affordable.
Founded in 2013, XYZprinting is dedicated to bringing cost-effective 3D printing to the masses. Their first 3D printer, the da Vinci 1.0, won the CES 2014 Editors’ Choice Award for being the most approachable and affordable 3D printing machine. No other 3D printer in its price class is as easy to use and the da Vinci 1.0 promises to deliver an outstanding user experience to novices and experienced users alike.
“The da Vinci 1.0 is a plug-n-play 3D printer with a large build size designed specifically for households and small businesses. With no assembly required, a smart design, unique safety features and easy-to-use cloud system, the da Vinci 1.0 has redesigned the 3D printing experience making it more user-friendly across all aspects of the process than ever before.”
da Vinci 1.0 Features
Plug-and-Play Printer: da Vinci is an out-of-the-box printer with no assembly or equipment adjustment required, making it a genuine plug-and-play personal 3D printer.
Large Build Size: da Vinci uses fused filament fabrication (FFF) technology and prints items at 7.8” x 7.8”x 7.8”, which is 20% larger than what other 3D printers in its class can print.
Closed Printing Area: da Vinci’s all enclosed design protects users from the high temperatures required to print and ensures printing byproducts aren’t released outside the printing area.
Cloud Database: Features an open-source cloud database with thousands of 3D models consumers can customize as desired.
User-Friendly Filament: With easy-to-install filament cartridges available in 12 colors, users can easily refill the printer or switch colors.
A is for All-in-One
Unlike other machines, the da Vinci 1.0 is an all-in-one device that makes the 3D printing process extremely easy. No assembly is required and all you need to do to get started is plug it in. No other 3D printer is as user-friendly as the da Vinci 1.0 and all it takes is one use to realize how simple it really is. And because it comes pre-loaded with many designs, you can start 3D printing in a matter of seconds.
B is for Big
The da Vinci 1.0 measures only 20 inches tall but you shouldn’t be fooled by its small footprint. This machine can actually print objects with a maximum build volume of 7.8” x 7.8” x 7.8” — allowing you to create thousands of different items you can’t make anywhere else. No other printer in this class can fabricate objects so big and the da Vinci 1.0 makes it easy with an open-source 3D library that offers thousands of downloadable designs.
C is for Creativity
XYZprinting has many user-generated designs at your disposal, but it’s up to you to decide what you want to print. Whether you want to make simple household items like bowls and cups, or smartphone accessories like cases and car mounts, the da Vinci 1.0 can handle any task. The possibilities are endless when your imagination is in control and 3D printing turns your ideas into reality.
