Why the DaVinci 1.0 Pro
XYZ printing focus on the entry level 3D printer market. The DaVinci 1.0 Pro desktop 3D printer is like the Da Vinci 1.0A but with added versatility, allowing users greater control over their 3D printing and opening up the possibility of filaments that can be used. It is built to be easy to use with an emphasis on plug’n play 3D printing. You can also add the Da Vinci Pro Laser engraving print head to personalise any of your models.
The Da Vinci Pro 3D printer features
One of the major differences between the Pro and the previous Da Vinci 3D printers is that you can use 3D printer filaments from any manufacturer, it has an open filament system, this together with an upgrade of their XYZware allows you to be able to adjust multiple print settings like: print speed; Print support; retraction settings; extruder temperature. You will have to discover what settings work best with what filament but it means that even speciality filaments can now be used.
The Da Vinci Pro has an Auto Loading filament system for easy changing and installing of filaments.
With it’s new print bed calibration system the onscreen software instructions will give you live feedback on your bed levelling using the DaVinci Pros bed level Detection software.
You can connect to your printer wirelessly, giving you greater connectivity than before.
This XYZ 3D printer has a build volume of 20cm x 20cm x 20cm which is extremely impressive for this price bracket.
It boasts a good sized build area of 20cm3, larger than most in it’s price range. and a range of layer resolutions to give you maximum options for your printing.
Importantly the print area is enclosed with a heated bed. This is great for ensuring the consistency of your printing between jobs and is ideal for both PLA and ABS, helping to reduce warping and improving print bed adhesion. The Da Vinci Pro also features an all Aluminium print bed which gives a better heat distribution and faster heating for reduced print warpage and better print adhesion.
It’s a safe printer too; having and enclosed build area helps protect prying fingers from the hotend and print bed during use making it an ideal choice for schools and the home.
