XYZPrinting announced today that they’ve released a new line of new PLA filaments as well as refillable ABS filament cartridges for their devices which provide a biodegradable option.
Two colors are ready to debut now, with Nature and Clear Yellow biodegradable PLA filaments available on Amazon. These initial colors will be joined throughout this year by seven further color options. In the next several months, we’ll see biodegradable PLA filaments available in black, white, red, blue, purple, green, and tangerine.
The company’s ABS filament cartridges can now also be refilled as well, and that allows 3D printer operators to minimize environmental impact — and save money — on the purchase of new cartridges in the process.
“It has been a year since we introduced our award-winning da Vinci 1.0 3D printer to the market, and the adoption, usage and recognition we’ve seen of our various models is phenomenal,” said Simon Shen, the CEO of XYZPrinting. “Our goal has been to drive innovation and mass adoption of 3D printing, and we’ve never strayed from that path. The recognition of the da Vinci AiO 3D printer-plus-scanner as a SXSW Interactive Innovation Awards finalist validates this, and we’re honored to be recognized.”
The XYZPrinting filament cartridge is easily replaced thanks to thoughtful design, and the company’s line of da Vinci 3D printers notifies users when filament is in short supply. The cartridges carry a retail price tag of $27.99, with refills running $24.99.
The da Vinci AiO (All-in-One) 3D printer-plus-scanner is an FFF-based machine with a maximum build volume of 20 x 20 x 19 cm capable of outputting objects at a resolution from 100 microns using 1.75 mm ABS or PLA filament. The device features a 2.6” FSTN LCM display, USB 2.0 connectivity, and Slit Laser Triangulation scanning for objects up to 15 x 15 cm at a scan resolution to 0.25 mm using XYZware software.
The da Vinci 1.0 and Nobel 1.0 3D printers were recently named CES Editors’ Choice Award winners for the second straight year, and the da Vinci 1.0 AiO 3D printer was selected as a finalist in the Innovative 3DIY category of the 2015 SXSW Interactive Innovation awards. The Innovative 3-DIY category was created to recognize industry leaders making 3D printing technology more accessible. Winners will be announced at the 18th annual SXSW Interactive Innovation Awards on March 17, 2015, in Austin, Texas.
XYZPrinting, a member of the New Kinpo Group, says their devices were developed to bring 3D printing to consumers, artists, small-to-mid-sized businesses, entrepreneurs and households around the world. The New Kinpo Group is a global electronic manufacturing service and original design manufacturing company which offers a broad product line including wireless routers, TV set top boxes, printers, and hard disk drives. The New Kinpo Group earns more than $30 billion in revenues annually and has more than 8,500 engineers in R&D across four continents.
