3 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 Up! Mini 3D Printer, the Velleman K8200, the Velleman Vertex Nano and the XYZ Printing da Vinci Junior 3D Printer do not. 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.

A Lot Bigger Maximum Layer Thickness

The XYZ Printing da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3 has a maximum layer thickness of 0.4, however the Up! Mini 3D Printer, the Velleman K8200 and the Velleman Vertex Nano are all only 0.2mm max layer thickness 3D printers (0.2mm smaller). 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.

Better Brand

XYZ Printing 3D printers have an average rating of 87.9%, but Up! Only has an average rating of 70.4% and Velleman only has an average rating of 77.9%.

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

A Lot Thicker Minimum Layer Thickness

XYZ Printing da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3 is 0.1 min layer thickness, but the Up! Mini 3D Printer, the Velleman K8200 and the Velleman Vertex Nano are all 0.05mm min layer thickness 3D printers (0.05mm thinner). 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.

Viewing Window

The XYZ Printing da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3 has a viewing window (as does the Velleman Vertex Nano), however the Up! Mini 3D Printer, the Velleman K8200 and the XYZ Printing da Vinci Junior 3D Printer do not 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 XYZ Printing da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3 has received a Kagoo Score of 80, whereas the XYZ Printing da Vinci Junior 3D Printer scored 81.

More Expensive by £380

The XYZ Printing da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3 is £66 more expensive than the Up! Mini 3D Printer, £336 more expensive than the Velleman K8200, £258 more expensive than the Velleman Vertex Nano and £380 more expensive than the XYZ Printing da Vinci Junior 3D Printer.

Fewer Sellers

The XYZ Printing da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3 is only stocked by 1 store, but the XYZ Printing da Vinci Junior 3D Printer is stocked by 2 sellers. More ...

The fewer the number of sellers that stock the product, the lower the competition amongst sellers to keep prices low.
Older by Over One Year

The XYZ Printing da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3 is 14 months older than the Velleman Vertex Nano. The XYZ Printing da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3 is the same age as the Up! Mini 3D Printer and the XYZ Printing da Vinci Junior 3D Printer.

The cheapest price that we could find for the da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3 in the UK is £531.06 but in total we found only 1 price for it.

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.

Card Reader

The Velleman Vertex Nano has a card reader, but the Up! Mini 3D Printer, the Velleman K8200, the XYZ Printing da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3 and the XYZ Printing da Vinci Junior 3D Printer do not. 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.

Viewing Window

The Velleman Vertex Nano has a viewing window, and so does the XYZ Printing da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3, but the Up! Mini 3D Printer, the Velleman K8200 and the XYZ Printing da Vinci Junior 3D Printer do not. More ...

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!
