Da Vinci 3D Printers: 2.0 VS 2.1

0

San Diego, Ca. based XYZPrinting, a subsidiary company of the Taiwan-based Kinpo Group,launched their line of affordable 3D printers in January of 2014. The Da Vinci 1.0 3D printer is a consumer favorite for those looking for an affordable 3D printer.

XYZ Printing has followed up the success of the 1.0 with the dual-extrusion Da Vinci 2.0 and 2.1 3D printers.
CES Coverage

With XYZ Printing less than a year old, the company isn’t wasting any time. Even with all of the competition at CES 2014, the Da Vinci line of 3D printers, which currently include the 1.0, 2.0, & 2.1, gained plenty of attention.

All the printers ran smoothly, printing logos and prototypes, as representatives discussed specifications and integrated safety feature with tech enthusiast and press personalities alike.

Dual Extrusion

It’s not wonder these printers are turning heads. Both The Da Vinci 2.0 and 2.1 have several state-of-the-art features. Dual extrusion capability allow these printers to print in two colors simultaneously, or to print using two different types of filament.

PVA Filament

One innovation in filaments, which the Da Vinci 2.0 3D printer features, is PVA, or polyvinyl alcohol. This water-soluble filament, which is used as a base layer or support material for PLA prints allows for the construction of more intricate prints that need a strong foundation while they set.

Calibration, Filament Detection, & Alarm System

Other features you can found in the 2.0 include auto calibration of the print platform, empty filament detection (much like low ink detection that we see in paper printers today), auto nozzle cleaning, and a safety alarm system (to alert the user of any open doors that have been detected during active use).

Mainstream Potential

With the Da Vinci 2.0 3D printer the priced at under $700, we have to wonder if this will be the line to make the breakthrough and mainstream 3D printing, once and for all.
