An awful lot of things about the modern world confuse me more than you would believe. Why there is brail on the stop buttons on busses is one (think about it,) why you aren’t allowed to feed ducks bread but are for other birds is a second, but the thing that most confuses me in this world is 3D printers. I could not have less of an idea about how they manage to make the most intricate and delicate things out of thin air and I don’t suppose I will ever be able to understand them either. Luckily it isn’t up to me to know all about their inner workings otherwise we would still all be using fax machines. To help both you and me understand these incredible pieces of technology a little better, I am going to be reviewing the XYZprinting Da Vinci Jr 3D printer to see if it is worth buying.
Tell me about the features
You should not let its new small, slimmer size fool you. There are an awful lot of really cool features squeezed into this 5.9 inch cubed printer. The Da Vinci Jr is easily one of the most affordable printers on the market and it will open your world up to a whole new range of possibilities. Perfect for first time designers and inventors, this desktop printer has a huge advantage over many of its rivals as it needs absolutely no calibration. This can often be a very time consuming and impractical task when opening your new 3D printer, but with the XYZ it is not an issue. It has a new auto-loading filament system for an easy, more convenient 3D printing experience and the fluid press and release extruder makes for an easy extruder replacement. The makers of this machine have also thought about the environment too, as there is a brand new refillable filament system. They really have thought of everything here, and as Sarah explains in her other reviews many of its rivals simply can not compete.
What are the good points?
This printer is incredibly easy to set up and use when compared to many others on the market. After a slight amount of fiddling with it when out of the box, it will be ready to go and you are only really limited by your imagination. If simplicity on a budget is what you are looking for then this is the machine for you.
And the bad points
What you must not do is let the initial frustration which can come with the printer get the better of you. If you are a rather impatient individual then getting to know all of the different kinks and nuances of the XYZprinting machine may annoy you, but after you have ironed these out it is worth the wait!
If you are in the market for a simple, small, but still very efficient 3D printer then I can wholeheartedly recommend the XYZ. If you are starting out in the world of 3D then it should suit you down to the ground and both you and your family and friends will get hours of joy from it.
