PROS

  • The da Vinci Jr. from XYZ Printing is easy to use and has automatic calibration.
  • It has a really low price, and the company provides good customer service.
  • You can use the built-in SD card reader for unconnected printing.

CONS

  • The da Vinci Jr. uses proprietary PLA filament only.
  • With its unheated bed and small build volume, the da Vinci Jr. is clearly in the 3D printer beginner category.
  • The da Vinci Jr. is slower than most other 3D printers.
XYXPrinting's da Vinci Jr. 3D is currently the lowest priced 3D printer available. Using proprietary PLA filament and a small unheated build platform, the da Vinci Jr. can print objects up to 5.9 inches cubed, with a resolution of 0.1 mm to 0.4 mm. The printer uses replaceable tape to hold objects in place. You can navigate and print using six buttons and a four line, 2.6-inch LCD screen. Connect to your computer using USB 2.0 or print unconnected from an SD card.

While it is a remarkable machine considering that it retails for just $349, it doesn't offer a lot of sophisticated features.

What was most pleasing about the testing process was the fact that I was able to get the printer up and running in under 10 minutes, which includes the time it took to unbox it.

The user interface is well-structured and intuitive. If you’ve worked with similar software before, you won’t have a problem with this one.
