3D Printing with Da Vinci Colour

With the da Vinci Color mini, full-colour 3D printing has become even more affordable. Let‘s review the facts of XYZ Printing’s newest low-budget full-colour 3D printer.

The Da Vinci Color is a professional 3D printer made by XYZPrinting, a manufacturer based in Taiwan, introduced in 2017. The new 3D printer works with a combination of inkjet and 3D printing technology. Color 3D printing will be a huge step forward in consumer 3D printing.

The Da Vinci Color has a colour-absorbing PLA filament that absorbs droplets of CMYK ink, enabling the machine to generate full-colour 3D prints. The printer works with conventional ink cartridges and makes it possible to create 16 million different shades of colour.  XYZPrinting’s da Vinci Color mini offers what consumers and hobbyists have longed for since the dawn of desktop 3D printing. The Da Vinci 3D Color is a highly affordable machine. Most of XYZ printers are targeted at kids, consumers and even professionals.

The prints developed were of high quality and colourful. The colour palette is more on the matte side. Glossy can be obtained by post-process the prints accordingly. Nevertheless, the da Vinci Color mini is capable of printing “millions of colours” with additive colour printing
