Back during CES 2015, one of the coolest products we saw from the show was a new 3D printer from XYZPrinting that is aimed at bringing 3D printing to the masses. The printer is called the da Vinci Junior 1.0 and it sells for $349. If you liked the idea of a cheap 3D printer you will be glad to hear that the Junior 1.0 is now shipping.
The manufacturer of the printer says that there will be three versions of the printer eventually. A version with wireless printing capability will come later this year. It’s unclear what the other version of the printer will be. The Junior 1.0 printer uses a non-heated bed and an enclosed printing area.
The printer needs no calibration and has easily removable extruder for cleaning and replacement. The printer will also alert to tell the user when filament is low. You can print items up to 5.9″ x 5.9″ x 5.9″ with the printer. Overall dimensions for the printer itself are 16.5″ x 15″ x 16.9″ making it easy to find space for. Weight is under 12kg making it easy to move if needed. You can buy the printer at Amazon, Newegg, and other locations right now.
