      Affordable printer with basic features

      The XYZ da Vinci Junior 1.0 aims to be an inexpensive printer that requires little calibration, an enclosed design and environmentally friendly in power usage and use of PLA filament. Priced at under $350 it comes in as the cheapest printer I’ve tested so far. The price point is great for a first time printer if you're looking to just try out 3D printing and don't want to spend a lot of money to try it out. The da Vinci Jr. is an enclosed printer with a non-heated glass bed that you apply blue painters or masking tape on top of. I tested it with a glue stick and got similar printing results. The roll of PLA filament is housed on the inside left of the printer and then runs out the top and back into a channel that the extruder runs along. This does a great job of keeping it from catching on anything. The filament has a smart chip installed in it to keep you from using any other vendors filament. You will need to purchase XYZ Printing PLA filament to use. The front of the printer lifts up to grant access to the inside and also houses the LCD screen at the bottom. An SD card slot is located behind the LCD screen and can be used to print from files exported from the XYZ printing software. The printer connects to your Windows or Mac computer with a USB cable or the software can export a .3W file to an SD card. The LCD gives you basic features to print a .3W file from an SD card, see stats, current print progress and some basic maintenance features. XYZWare can update the firmware on the printer and handles converting the STL file to a .3W that the printer will then print. The software is available on Windows and OS X. The software handles importing a standard STL file, moving, rotating, resizing and printing or exporting a .3W file for use on an SD card. Settings available on the print or export are limited to density (fill %), Layer height (.4, .3, .2, .1), shells (thin, standard, thick) and speed (fast, standard, slow). The software has added improvements over previous versions to help fix some files and provide a better product. Keeping in mind this is a $350 printer when other printers range in price from $800 - $2500 it does a good job printing. Proper calibration and sometimes a little glue stick on the painters tape will get a better result. The non-removable bed makes getting some prints with large bottom surface areas difficult to remove if they have a large base. There are better and more expensive printers out there, but for the price you can do a lot with this printer and the money saved can get a few rolls of filament without a huge investment. Pros: -- Inexpensive Printer -- Small footprint Cons: -- Rafts become one with the printed object. -- Only works with XYZ Printing filament due to chip technology. ------------------------------------------------- Original 2-star review from 10/2/2015 The XYZ da Vinci Junior 1.0 aims to be an inexpensive printer that requires little calibration, an enclosed design and environmentally friendly in power usage and PLA filament.

The price point is great for a first time printer if you're looking to just try out 3D printing and don't want to spend a lot of money to try it out.

Keeping in mind this is a $350 printer when other printers range in price from $1000 - $2500 it does a fair job printing. The quality ranges from not too bad to broken when small pieces that are designed to work together don’t fit. After cutting a few printed objects open it appears to be the fill and pattern that is not being handled very well. The normal crisscross pattern was not solid and may cause issues with some prints. Other printers have a nicer fill pattern and this may be something that's fixed with a future software fix to enable better prints. During testing I was able to get some objects to print out satisfactorily the quality wasn't the best I've seen, but was pretty good. On some other printers the accuracy and quality just wasn't there. I printed a 2" tall squirrel and it was nice, but when I tried to print a smaller parts with gears and bolts they just didn't fit together. The XYZ Da Vinci Junior 1.0 is a very cheap printer and you’re getting what you paid for in this case. Over many prints I had more bad experiences in my prints than I had good experiences. The non-removable bed makes getting some prints with large bottom surface areas difficult to remove. The quality ranged from not too bad to just couldn’t print properly. I was required to adjust the settings and printer a lot more than other printers and at times still ended up giving up printing. There are better printers out there and you're better off saving up for one of those. Pros: -- Inexpensive Printer -- Small footprint Cons: -- Too many issues with the print quality. -- Software needs some updates to the slicing engine.

      I purchased this on clearance sale, hoping to print simple items more cost-effectively than they were to acquire at retail. The videos about the product make it seem like the 3D prints will effortlessly pop right off the table and be ready for use... Then reality hit like a ton of bricks, starting with the awful setup instructions, which were spartan at best, with pictures that looked like they were printed mostly in black. The first printing I tried looked terrible, and after it finished hours later, I had to tear into the bed's replaceable adhesive tape with the included scraper in order to free the printed items... all of which looked like junk! The second print I attempted I didn't even allow to finish - it looked that bad! If you're thinking about getting into 3D printing, do yourself a big favor and spend your money on something better than this... which means pretty much anything else!

      Impressive technology for my son

      I bought the printer for my 11 year old son with some hesitation on practicality, ease of use, interest level, etc. it was surprising to me how much he has used it (it has been a month thus far). Initially there was a problem getting an image file to transfer to the printer and it turned out to be a software glitch. This happened on day one, but a fix was provided by the company within a day or so. Thus far, my son has printed about 20 different images from files readily available online (resting dog, football logo of favorite team, letters, iPhone case, etc.). The learning curve is surprisingly short and the only other issue he has had is keeping the nozzle clean with a few images "sticking" to nozzle. Some really small intricate printing such as an Eiffel Tower model that 2 inches tall didn't print well at all given the lattice work, but others with some mass or size have printed well. Overall, it is quite impressive technology and I would recommend purchasing it.

      Waste of Money

      It quit working on the second print. XYZ's response: Customer service line (Not open the hours it says on the machine), response, and I quote: "Too BEEZY". No cooperation here, even when I tried to make an appointment. Never got a call back. On Line Support: 5 weeks and no satisfactory response. They sent me to YouTube links. Replacement parts: Go the their website. They've been out of stack of everything since this whole mistake began in late January. Oh, and the machine I have is the second one. I had to return the first because it arrived broken. XYZ warranty is only 6 months. They just brush you off for that long hoping you'll go away. They have my money though an without support, no way to get it back. Incidentally, Best Buy does not offer buyer protection on this piece of work. That should have been my first clue. I sure wish I had read the Best Buy reviews before purchasing.

      Poor XYZ printing customer service

      Posted
      Smithers

      Purchased this as a gift. Turned it on and gave error message right away. Called the company and was told a technician would call back the next day at a specific time. He never called so I called back a few hours after our scheduled time. The customer service rep put me on hold for 10 minutes. When she arrived back, she said the board must be bad. Not even sure what that means or if they even cared if it could be troubleshooted. They never even tried. I could either return to the store for refund or them for repair. Repair would require a cost to me even though it was brand new and under warranty. She kept stressing I could return to the store, like the company did not want to be bothered with repairing it. I suggest finding a more reputable manufacturer when looking for a 3D printer. Now I have disappointed kids and will need to return to the store. Will now research a better brand to buy instead.

      I received this printer as a Christmas gift. The printer has been running non-stop since Christmas. I have printed several projects all have been successful. The best quality takes longer the GOOD quality less time but still very good prints. I have had -0- issues with this printer. First startup I did update the firmware and never have had to adjust the printer at all. I also leveled the stand on which it sits so the bed is totally level from all sides. Out of the box this worked beautifully and I look forward to many years of enjoyment.

      Surprisingly simple to use, after you understand the things others have already tripped over, like the slippery print surface that needs a glue stick applied before printing. The software is pretty rudimentary, but serviceable. The biggest lack is an end to end how-to guide. That seems to be the rule these days, google it or figure it out yourself...keeps the prices low. Make sure you're getting what you want. They do a poor job of pointing out what features you don't get on the cheap ones, like wifi support. Other than color and price, they look the same. The company could improve its marketing, but they're doing some things well, like a product that is affordable and actually works.

      Customer Service of XYZprinting non-existent!

      Bought two for our schools from Best Buy. One works fine. The other prints ok until the project heights hits about ½ inch. Then it just prints a blob. I have tried to contact XYZprinting support by phone and email for over a month. Have not heard anything back. So it just sits in a corner right now.
