We recently had the opportunity to test and review, beta test the Davinci Jr. 2.0 mix. This product is the company’s one of the newly released plus series 3D printers in the market. The physical appearance of the printer is very similar to the da Vinci Jr. 1.0. If you have limited experience with 3D printing or even if you are experienced it is an excellent choice too, I recommend you to adopt one of these cool printers.It is a decent printer at an affordable price range and it offers many filament colors.
We found their software, Xyzware to be easy to use, and reliable. The output quality is very nice, actually better than most of the other printers that we have tested and reviewed. We like the design of the printer, it is cosmetically appealing, solid and it is solid in design. The set up was easy to do. The software, and wifi set up is relatively easy. It uses only the Xyz filament, which ensures that it works well, and with their equipment. It would be cool to be able to use other filament, but not a really big issue. The support is also quite decent from Xyz and their folks. Overall we recommend the printer to schools, families and small businesses. We really liked the ability to mix colors or print more than one color at a time too. It would be cool to have a full color version at some point.
We really liked the printer overall.
The only downside is that your have to use filament that is from XYZ Printing only and can not use open source filament.
It uses XYZware which we found to work well, especially for color mixing and printing.
Some folks like Cura, Simplify and Slicr, but overall we liked XYZware and it got the job done in an easy and efficient manner.
We wish that the printer could connect to wifi from the device, it uses a 2 step process, that works but could have been easier.
We definitely were impressed by the printer, its’ design and the output quality was better than most 3d printers that we have tested and reviewed in the last few years.
