XYZPrinting’s compact, entry-level da Vinci Color AiO 3D Printer, with an expected retail price of under $3,5000, is designed to provide full-color 3D printing to small businesses and schools “at a fraction of the cost of other full-colour 3D printers, making it an accessible tool for anyone looking to incorporate 3D printing into their business or curriculum. It combines 3D printing and inkjet technology to achieve true depth of colour, layer by layer.” Mixing filament with CMYK colour allows for accuracy and precision of colouring. The printer’s All-in-One (AiO) designation means that it includes a built-in 3D scanner. Designers can print a full-colour prototype in a matter of hours, as opposed to possibly weeks (using third-party 3D printing services). An optional laser-engraving module increases production capacity and efficiency. The da Vinci Color AiO includes XYZmaker – an easy-to-use 3D modelling software. With it, users can create, prepare and print, even from a tablet! The software includes animation, movie models and educational modules. The printer’s auto-leveling and calibration detection system makes it even easier to use.
