Taiwan-based 3D printer manufacturer XYZprinting almost always has a new 3D printer to introduce whenever an industry event or trade show rolls around. At last year’s IFA exhibition, the company unveiled its da Vinci Color 3D printer, and is now expanding its portfolio even further at IFA 2018 with the release of its consumer-oriented da Vinci Color mini.
Part of the company’s Color series, the compact, full-color da Vinci Color mini uses 3DColorJet technology, which combines FFF 3D printing with inkjet technology, so users can turn their ideas into colorful reality.
“Desktop full-color 3D printing is here. Now, consumers can purchase an easy-to-operate, affordable, compact full-color 3D printer for $30,000 less than market rate,” said Simon Shen, CEO of XYZprinting. “This is revolutionary because we are giving the public access to technology that was once only available to industry professionals. We are proud to be the industry leader in desktop, full-color 3D printing.”
The new da Vinci Color mini by XYZprinting, weighing in at just 53 lbs, is convenient and lightweight enough to be easily placed on any desktop or table top, while also providing the same high level of versatility and quality that XYZprinting is known for. This makes it the perfect 3D printer for designers, entrepreneurs, and STEAM students.
The 3D printer, which the company says is “a modern full-color 3D printing solution to traditional bulky and expensive full-color 3D printers,” works seamlessly, thanks to several features like WiFi connectivity, an EZ removable print bed, hands-free automatic calibration, and a 5″ color touchscreen LCD panel for user-friendly, intuitive operation.
Additional features include:
- Complete full-color 3D printing capabilities (3-in-1 CMY ink cartridges)
- Upgradable laser engraving function for leather, wood, and more
- Mono-color 3D printing in PLA, PETG, and Tough PLA
- Full-color 3D printing in Color PLA
- 5.1″ x 5.1″ x 5.1″ build volume
- Fully enclosed
- UL certified
The compact da Vinci Color mini is easy to set up, so users can get right down to the business of 3D printing. XYZprinting’s 3DColorJet technology is able to provide a full spectrum of millions of colors, which can be applied to various layers in 3D prints.
The da Vinci Color mini was designed for all sorts of consumer and professional 3D printer users, such as producers who create prototypes of film and animation models that need to be available for immediate use post-print, and educators looking to add full-color 3D printing capabilities into their classrooms. This 3D printer is also perfect for small business owners looking to open their own 3D printing business, designers and architects who want to help clients get a better idea of their final product with the help of miniature landscapes and scaled down models, geek culture collectors and fans, and just daily consumers in need of a more cost-effective 3D printing solution.
XYZprinting’s new da Vinci Color mini 3D printer retails for $1599.95, but early adopters can save $600 by pre-ordering it on Indiegogo; it should be shipped to crowdfunding backers in October of 2018.
The da Vinci Color mini will also be on display later this month at IFA 2018, which will be held at the Berlin Exhibition Grounds in Germany from August 31st to September 5th. You can see the 3D printer for yourself at the company’s Booth 107 in Hall 12.
