XYZprinting Showcases da Vinci Color mini 3D Printer, Announces UK Launch of da Vinci Color AiO, at IFA 2018
“This latest innovation is a significant step forward for 3D printing, particularly for desktop users. Being able to control your printer with something as intuitive as simply speaking will open up 3D printing to a wider range of people,” said XYZprinting CEO Simon Shen.
“The AiO is aimed at those that have not used 3D printing a lot previously or not used it at all. Being able to tell the printer what you want it to do will make it simple to navigate, as well as letting you search from the XYZ 3D gallery. This means that if you would like to find a 3D model of a vase, you would just say ‘search for a vase for me’ and the 3D gallery would bring up all vases on the gallery to choose from.
“The added features of the printer, the scanner and the engraver, make the AiO the most complete desktop 3D printing unit ever developed, giving entrepreneurs and designers the chance to bring their ideas to life.”
The AiO, which stands for All in One, has certainly grown since its first iteration two years ago as the da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3-in-1. The handy desktop 3D printer, scanner, and engraver will give designers, educators, engineers, and entrepreneurs alike the ability to use intuitive voice commands to easily control the system. In addition to 3D scanning objects, users can 3D print full-color objects through the use of simple voice activation, and can later engrave those same prints as well.Actually, this last may not be true – the da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3-in-1 was only able to engrave objects made out of cardboard, leather, and wood, which the da Vinci Color AiO can’t actually 3D print. But, the old version had the laser engraver as an optional module, while the updated 3D printer features an inbuilt engraver, so maybe things have changed?
Regardless, the da Vinci Color AiO makes it easy for users to replicate and personalize designs with the built-in 3D scanner and engraver. It also features full-color 3D printing – the company’s 3D Color Jet technology mixes and sprays CYMK color droplets onto white PLA filament deposit layer by layer, “achieving full-colour spectrum accuracy and precision,” according to XYZprinting.
The desktop 3D printer also features a new EZ-removable print bed, with a 20 x 20 x 15 cm build volume that helps prints adhere to the bed while still being easy to remove from it. The print bed is also auto-leveling, so you never have to worry about the accuracy of your prints.
XYZprinting is exhibiting at IFA 2018 through Wednesday, September 5th, in Hall 12, Stand 107 of the Berlin Exhibition Grounds at Messe Berlin. At the event, the company will be launching the da Vinci Color mini, a compact version of its original full-color 3D printer that’s designed for use at home and in schools and offices. The accessible mini 3D printer features an intuitive user experience, thanks to its 5″ color LCD display screen, and will retail for the recommended price of £1,599 beginning in December.
The da Vinci Color AiO will be available for purchase starting in September, for the recommended price of £2,699, through the company’s network of partner resellers.
