Design and Features
The design of the printer is quite compact. With 22 x 20.5 x 18 inches size, this 3D printer is going to be fit in any corner. The color of the 3D printer casing is a red-and-black colored plastic. It has an opening or what so called the “door” in the front area of the printer. Through this opening, we can see the 3D printing, etching, and scanning area. It also has a door on the top of the printer. It can be used to fill the cartridges and also the filament. This XYZprinting da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3D printer has several great features including laser engraving section of this printer that can totally be used on many materials.
This printer is also completed by the features of flexibility when comes to the print materials. The print materials or the filament of this 3D printer is very flexible. Unlike many other 3D printer brands that can only be used using the same filament as the printer, this 3D printer can use third party filament. So, you do not have to worry about not finding the same filament as the cartridge and the printer. When you use this 3D printer, you can use printing materials such as the ABS or PLA. The ABS can have 18 colors and the PLA can have up to seven colors. The colors can range from white to neon. The weight and thickness of the filament are also flexible but it is suggestible that you use 600 grams of filament.
Setup and Software
The setup of this XYZprinting da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3 in 1 printer is very easy. All you need to do is plugging the printer into electricity. Then, load the filament, install the reel, and then feed the filament right into the print head tube. Soon after, the printing process will begin. The 3D printer is going to use sensor to the print head to detect the print bed and then starting to print the object. The software that you need to control this 3D printer is called XYZware Pro software. This software is free and can be downloaded easily. After you install the software to your Windows and Mac, you can start controlling the printer. You can send file to the printer using this software. Considering that this 3D printer is also available for scanning, you can also use the software to do some scaling, scanning, and rotating as well. The software is also going to help you control the laser so that you can engrave whatever you like onto an object. The engraving design will get projected by the laser from the printer to the object.
Process and Result
The printing process is quite slow with this printer. However, the result is quite detailed so it is nothing to complain. The print head and the extruder are safely blocked by the filament part so that it is safe to use. You do not have to be worried about the hot extruder hurting your hand. As for the 3D scanning, the process is quite quick but the result is not too exceptional. The object can be placed inside the printer and then get scanned. The scanned result can be seen on the monitor of the computer. The result than can be rotated and edited using the computer. The object will be shined by two lasers. However, the result is not as good as we expected. Now let us talk about the last function of this da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3 in 1 printer which is laser engraver. This printer is indeed capable to do laser engraver. The laser used to engrave the object is the same two lasers used to scan the object. Surprisingly, the laser engraver in this printer works well. The laser engraver can be used on many different materials such as plastic, wood, and even rocks by projecting the laser into the materials.
Pros, Cons, Conclusion, and Price
Let us begin with the price of the 3D printer. As stated before, the price of this 3D printer with scanning and engraving feature is surprisingly cheap. Only with $323.99 you can buy this printer. It is a cheap price considering that this 3D printer is completed by 3 different functions and a lot of great features. Beside of being 3D printer, this tool is also 3D scanner and engtaver. So, it is just a fair price, or cheap price actually. Talking about the pros, cons, and conclusion, below is the list for you:
- The result of the 3D printing and engraving is just stunning.
- It also available to be used using third party filament.
- Beside of that, this 3D printer can produce printing with great detail. The price is also very reasonable.
- The 3D scanning is not very good.
- It is not capable to scan the whole object easily.
