6 Reasons For for Choosing the XYZ Printing Da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3

3D Scanner

The XYZ Printing da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3 has a 3D scanner, whereas the bq Witbox Go!, the Flashforge Creator Pro, the Up! Mini 3D Printer and the Velleman K8200 do not have this feature. More ...

Some 3D printers also have an integrated 3D scanner which can scan an original item and then print out a copy.

While rare, 3D scanners are extremely helpful for creating 3D versions of real-world objects: it can scan an object from all sides and create a blueprint, which can then be used by the printer to create a 3D replica.

Bigger Maximum Layer Thickness

The XYZ Printing da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3 has a maximum layer thickness of 0.4mm. That's 0.15mm bigger than the Flashforge Creator Pro, the Up! Mini 3D Printer and the Velleman K8200 (0.25mm). More ...

The maximum layer thickness is the maximum thickness of a layer that the 3D printer can produce. These layers are printed one on top of each other to make up the finished 3D model.

A bigger layer thickness means that each layer will be both thicker and stronger, leading to a more stable final piece. However the thickness means that it won't be quite as detailed, and will look more bulky.

Thinner Minimum Layer Thickness

XYZ Printing da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3 is 0.1mm min layer thickness, and so does the Flashforge Creator Pro. That's 0.1mm thinner than the Up! Mini 3D Printer and the Velleman K8200 (0.2mm). More ...

The minimum layer thickness denotes the minimum thickness of a layer that the 3D printer can produce. These layers are printed one on top of each other to make up the finished 3D model.

A smaller layer thickness means that the individual layers will all be smaller, but there will be more of them making up the object. This means that while the object may not be quite as hardy, it will be far more details, since it's made up of far more layers.

Better Kagoo Score

The XYZ Printing da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3 has received a Kagoo Score of 90, whereas the bq Witbox Go! Scored only 75, the Flashforge Creator Pro scored 88, the Up! Mini 3D Printer scored 88 and the Velleman K8200 scored only 73.

More Shops Are Selling it

A greater number of stores increases the price competition amongst retailers for this 3D printer and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.

Better Brand

XYZ Printing 3D printers have an average rating of 95%, but bq only has an average rating of 63.5%, Flashforge only has an average rating of 78.1%, Up! Only has an average rating of 75.3% and Velleman only has an average rating of 75.1%.

3 Reasons Against for Choosing the XYZ Printing Da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3

Viewing Window

The XYZ Printing da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3 has a viewing window, and so do the bq Witbox Go! And the Flashforge Creator Pro, however the Up! Mini 3D Printer and the Velleman K8200 do not. More ...

A viewing window on a 3D printer lets you watch the printer as it works.

Having a viewing window is helpful, since it means you can watch the 3D model as it grows, meaning you can quickly spot any problems or flaws. Plus, they are really cool things to watch work!

£161 More Expensive

The XYZ Printing da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3 is more expensive than the Velleman K8200 by £161.

Over Two Years Older

The XYZ Printing da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3 is older than the bq Witbox Go! By two years and older than the Flashforge Creator Pro by 19 months. The XYZ Printing da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3 is the same age as the Up! Mini 3D Printer.

The cheapest price that we could find for the da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3 in the UK is £462.99 but in total we found only 2 prices for it.

7 Reasons Against for Choosing the Velleman K8200

38% Smaller Maximum Layer Thickness

The Velleman K8200 is a 0.25mm max layer thickness 3D printer. That's 0.15mm smaller than the Flashforge Creator Pro, the Up! Mini 3D Printer and the XYZ Printing da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3 (0.4mm). More ...

The maximum layer thickness is the maximum thickness of a layer that the 3D printer can produce. These layers are printed one on top of each other to make up the finished 3D model.

A bigger layer thickness means that each layer will be both thicker and stronger, leading to a more stable final piece. However the thickness means that it won't be quite as detailed, and will look more bulky.

34% Thicker Minimum Layer Thickness

The Velleman K8200 has a minimum layer thickness of 0.2mm. That's 0.1mm thicker than the Flashforge Creator Pro, the Up! Mini 3D Printer and the XYZ Printing da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3 (0.1mm). More ...

The minimum layer thickness denotes the minimum thickness of a layer that the 3D printer can produce. These layers are printed one on top of each other to make up the finished 3D model.

A smaller layer thickness means that the individual layers will all be smaller, but there will be more of them making up the object. This means that while the object may not be quite as hardy, it will be far more details, since it's made up of far more layers.

Does Not Have a Viewing Window

The Velleman K8200 does not have a viewing window, however the bq Witbox Go!, the Flashforge Creator Pro, the Up! Mini 3D Printer and the XYZ Printing da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3 have this feature. More ...

A viewing window on a 3D printer lets you watch the printer as it works.

Having a viewing window is helpful, since it means you can watch the 3D model as it grows, meaning you can quickly spot any problems or flaws. Plus, they are really cool things to watch work!

Worse Kagoo Score

The Velleman K8200 has only received a Kagoo Score of 73, but the bq Witbox Go! Scored 75, the Flashforge Creator Pro scored 88, the Up! Mini 3D Printer scored 88 and the XYZ Printing da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3 scored 90.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 1 retailer sell the Velleman K8200, however 2 stores sell the Up! Mini 3D Printer and 2 shops sell the XYZ Printing da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3. More ...

Smaller numbers of retailers reduces the chances of this 3D printer remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
Over Three Years Older

The Velleman K8200 is older than the bq Witbox Go! By four years, older than the Flashforge Creator Pro by three years, older than the Up! Mini 3D Printer by 20 months and older than the XYZ Printing da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3 by 20 months.

Worse Brand

Velleman 3D printers have an average rating of only 75.1%, however Flashforge has an average rating of 78.1%, Up! Has an average rating of 75.3% and XYZ Printing has an average rating of 95%.
