Featuring auto-calibration, auto-loading filament, and a 5.9 x 5.9 x 5.9" build size, the education-focused and kid-safe da Vinci miniMaker 3D Printer (Black/White Edition) from XYZprinting is designed for those seeking to develop core STEM skills. It features Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) printing technology; a layer resolution of 100 to 400 microns; a printing speed of up to 120mm/s; and the ability to utilize 1.75mm PLA, Tough PLA, and PETG filaments via its auto-loading filament system. It is also equipped with an open and non-heated print bed. Users may print their compatible .stl files, .3mf, and XYZ's proprietary .3w and .nkg files via wired USB 2.0 Type-B connectivity.
To help keep things running smoothly, this 3D printer uses an auto-calibration system that determines the distance between the extruder and the print bed so that the extruder may be adjusted accordingly. It also comes with a free download of XYZmaker 3D modeling design software for beginners and 4500+ free downloadable models from XYZ's 3D gallery. Additionally, students and teachers will get free access to XYZ's online curriculum education program, XYZ STEAM, which helps K-12 science, technology, engineering, arts, and math educators to incorporate 3D printing into their classrooms.
The da Vinci miniMaker 3D Printer is hardware-compatible with 32- & 64-bit systems running Windows 7 and above and 64-bit Macs running OS X 10.10 and above with at least 4GB of memory, as well as Linux Ubuntu 14.04 and 16.04. Included is a power adapter, a power cord, a USB cable, an extruder module, a scraper, a guide tube, bundled filament, a filament spool ring, three pieces of bed tape, a cleaning brush, a feeding path cleaning wire, five cleaning wires, a leveling tool, a PET protection cover, and a feeding tube grip.
