CES 2014 XYZprinting affordable personal 3D printer

control_panel3D printers are becoming more and more mainstream. It may not be the Replicator a lot of us grew up with on Star Trek, but it’s a cool start. What many of you may not know is that 3D printing has been around since the 1980s, but it’s only become popular within the last four to five years. A lot of us have been seeing prices on 3D printers drop drastically, but making 3D printers cheaper is just part of the puzzle that will entice you to buy one and use it.

tilt_2In this day in age simple is king! Making something simple and easy to setup and use determines whether you keep a new form of technology or trash it. At one time or another we have all had to purchase a new printer.

XYZPringing is aiming to be the affordable household 3D printer. First let’s talk price point; the Da Vinci 1.0 from XYZPringing will be released shortly in the US for $499. Most other 3D printers out in the market start at well over $1,000. Second is ease of use, as I said previously, no one wants to sit down and read a manual for days on end before using their new toy. XYZPrinting follows the same model as any store-bought printer of today. You take the printer out of the box, you hook it up, install the included software, load in your printer cartridge (User-Friendly Filament) and you are ready to print in 3D! No, ladies and gentlemen, this is not an infomercial, but it is that easy. The last piece of the puzzle is the biggest question of all, what are you going to print? From day one XYZPringing gives you access to a library of 3D models that you can download and modify to print in your new Da Vinci 1.0. Truly what you print is up to you.

The Da Vinci 1.0 connects to your PC or Mac via USB 2.0, the software comes with free updates and support for the first year, and you get access to a cloud database with thousands of 3D models to choose from. You also have the choice to print in twelve different colored ABS consumables. If you’ve been itching to start printing in 3D this may just be your starting point.
