xyzlogoXYZprinting has put Taiwan on the map for 3D printing manufacturing, leading what’s now quite a competitive pack in terms of quality and user satisfaction. Not just marketing spin, these are truly the machines that a wide range of users around the world are relying on for their innovations—as XYZprinting provides the perfect recipe in terms of features and affordability, leading to that goal of accessibility for many–and with the proof widely apparent as they remain a constant forerunner in online sales,–as well as receiving ongoing accolades from experts within the industry.

The da Vinci Mini 3D printer is priced at only $269, and won the CES Editors’ Choice Award for 2016.

From novices to professionals, the Da Vinci lineup, to include the Nobel SLA 3D printer, is indeed making a new world of innovation go ‘round with eco-friendly, lightweight machines that most anyone who is interested can afford, looking at price tags even under the $300 mark. So what about the digital design end? While many manufacturers prefer to stay in one realm, XYZprinting is evolving into a company that provides a realistic one stop shop for users, even providing a handheld scanner for under $200.

For most of us, getting to the actual plug and play portion of 3D printing is often the end product of an evolution that has traveled from the spark of an idea to a viable concept—to the drawing board—which today, is often in a complex digital form. As more and more users delve into this technology, however, simplicity is key—and no one seems to be more aware of that than XYZprinting. Now, their users should be delighted to hear that the company is releasing the key to all their design and modeling needs with a new software solution, XYZmaker. This is, according to XYZprinting, the simplest solution available, accentuating their product line already famous for its ease in use.

“3D printers themselves have come a long way in terms of user-friendliness and accessibility, but 3D modeling has remained fairly restrictive and difficult to grasp when you don’t come from a design background,” said Simon Shen, CEO at XYZprinting. “We hope that the launch of XYZmaker will bridge that gap, and bring us one step closer to breaking down the barriers to 3D printer ownership so that everyone can become the maker.”

This new software, designed to work for even the total beginner, is now available for free download if you are an XYZprinting member. No matter your level of designing and 3D printing acumen, members can look forward to exploring a 3D warehouse stocked with existing 3D models. Simple tools are then provided with XYZmaker so that a variety of shapes can be chosen and generated easily and then can be manipulated for turning, adjusting, and placing into groups. The models can be personalized as well, and the XYZprinting team adds that as much detail as desired can indeed be added by the user.

lifeWhile the 3D printing end of creating can often be intimidating enough in terms of purchasing and then learning how to operate a new machine, the complexities of design can seem completely out of reach for new users who are interested in dipping their toes into the water but don’t really have a good starting point. If that’s the case for you, the XYZprinting line offers a complete selection of everything you need to start making, and with guidance all along the way.

XYZmaker is fully compatible with all of XYZprinting’s printer ranges, and allows files to be exported in .stl, .obj, .amf or .ply format for external use. Discuss your thoughts on this new software in the XYZmaker 3D Modeling forum over at 3DPB.com.

Founded in 2013, XYZprinting has been continuing on their path to provide affordable 3D printing to individuals and businesses around the globe, with the intention of ‘breaking down the barriers of 3D printer ownership.’ Currently the Taiwanese manufacturer, a subsidiary of Kinpo Group, holds offices in China, Japan, the United States and Europe.
