The XYZprinting da Vinci 1.0 Pro. 3D Printer has a price point that is bears almost no difference to the company’s other 3D printers. While XYZprinting’s 3D printers are among the lowest priced units on the market, the da Vinci 1.0 Pro aims to deliver top-of-the-line printing quality the likes of which that can be seen in higher-end devices. Well, this is just in theory.
The XYZprinting da Vinci 1.0 Pro. 3D Printer is a Reasonably Priced Unit With Average Output
For its dimensions, the XYZprinting da Vinci 1.0 Pro. 3D Printer measures in at 18.4 x 22 x 20-inches, which means it is going to eat up your shelf space. It is approximately the same size as a cathode television set. If you don’t know what these are, Google it up and see that today’s TV sets are made to be slimmer, whereas those units from the olden days are made to be thick. Moving forward, this 3D printer also weighs as much as those TVs of old as it has a weight of 57.4-pounds.
One beautiful aspect about the da Vinci 1.0 Pro. 3D Printer is it is encased in an attractive plastic case. This also serves as to reduce the noise and smell of the melting plastic that comes off of the extruder head.
Like the company’s other 3D printers, it uses filament cartridges to deal with the 3D printing. Many consider this a drawback because it is akin to purchasing ink cartridges for a traditional printer. Therefore, to use third party filaments, you would have to order an open filament reel or print your own reel to hang onto the machine (there’s one project you can start with already).
This particular 3D printer supports both ABS and PLA filaments from all sources. This allows users to print more materials as these two filament types are the two most popular consumer-grade filaments. The unit allows users to adjust temperature settings for the extruder nozzle as well as the aluminum print bed. Therefore, you are able to use third-party filaments that are made of polymers with varying consistencies.
While it devotes a lot of promise, using the device for actual printing is a mess. There are times when giving the 3D printer a task will end up producing a bird’s nest of squiggly lines instead of the actual product. While there are times that it does produce quality results, users may find that they have to repeat the same project two, or even three more times to get their desired result. This is an immense waste of filament.
While the XYZprinting da Vinci 1.0 Pro. 3D Printer is a high-performing printer, it falls short in printing performance. Products come out good, if not great for the most part, but there are times when the printer will fail which is a huge waste of filament.
