XYZprinting, one of the world’s leading affordable 3D printer manufacturers, is ushering in a new era of full-color 3D printing with the da Vinci Color – the world’s first full-color 3D printer that uses 3DColorJet technology – combining inkjet printing with the fused filament fabrication (FFF) 3D printing process. Announced at IFA 2017, the da Vinci Color (MSRP $3499.95) is available now for preorder on the XYZprinting e-store for USD $2,999.95.
“With its 3DColorJet technology, the da Vinci Color is a breakthrough in 3D printing technology as it provides full color spectrum accuracy at an affordable, small business-friendly price, that is unmatched by any other color 3D printer in the market,” explained Simon Shen, CEO of XYZprinting. “Just as we did with the da Vinci 1.0 in 2014, the da Vinci Color is poised to change the 3D printing industry again and allow you to turn your creativity into color 3D.”
The industry’s ultimate full-color 3D printer, XYZprinting’s 3DColorJet solution enables the da Vinci Color to mix and fire CMYK color droplets onto PLA filament for accuracy and precision. The printer’s technology achieves the full-color spectrum of 16 million color possibilities across printed layers in finished 3D products. The proprietary technology combines color detail, which has been perfected in inkjet printing, with advanced, professional 3D printing technology.
