If you couldn’t make it to CES 2014 this year, fret not for there are plenty of blogs, gadget geeks, and industry insiders posting about nearly everything at the show.
We’ll jump on that wagon and point out one of our favorite new devices to hit the market aimed at the consumer market. Why are we excited about this new device? Because it now enables the average Joe or Jane to experiment with 3D printing technologies without dropping thousands of dollars on complicated equipment that requires complex set up and training for the most basic functions.
It is a major achievement to get a good quality 3D printer in the $600 arena without having to ship the consumer a variety of parts in which they must assemble and calibrate themselves.
This innovative printer requires no set-up and is an enclosed machine that allows consumers to create thousands of items from bowls and cups to key chains and smartphone cases – the possibilities are endless. Some of the key features include:
• Plug-and-play Printer:
Da Vinci is an out-of-the-box printer with no assembly or equipment adjustment required, making it a genuine plug-and-play personal 3D printer.
• Large Build Size:
Da Vinci uses fused filament fabrication (FFF) technology and prints items at 7.8’’x7.8’’x7.8’’, which is 20 percent larger than what other 3D printers in its class can print.
• Closed Printing Area:
Da Vinci’s all enclosed design protects users from the high temperatures required to print and ensures printing byproducts aren’t released outside the printing area.
• Cloud Database:
Features an open-source cloud database with thousands of free 3D models consumers can customize as desired.
• User-Friendly Filament:
With easy-to-install filament cartridges available in 12 colors, users can easily refill the printer or switch colors.
