06 September 17XYZprinting developed an affordable full-color FDM printer
XYZprinting made dreams of all the people involved in printing come true, by developing an affordable FDM color printer. Da Vinci Color device uses 3DColorJet technology and works with a special PLA polymer.
The novelty creators combined the FDM method and ink-jet printing, which is used in office printers. They equipped the device with a four-color CMYK autotype jet head. As a result, the filament acquires a certain color in the printing process: microdrops of different colors are evenly applied to it. According to the developers, da Vinci Color allows you to paint your products in 16 million shades.
Naturally, this kind of printing requires a special consumable material and special ink cartridges. As a filament, it uses Color PLA, a polylactide that can absorb paint. It has an extrusion temperature of 190°C and strength, higher than the conventional PLA plastic version.
Da Vinci Color Specifications:
- construction zone - 200х200х150 mm;
- printing resolution - 100-400 microns;
- nozzle diameter - 0,4 mm;
- optimal printing speed - 30-60 mm/s;
- a table without heating;
- calibration is automatic;
- LCD display, Wi-Fi and USB connector.
Full-color FDM printer from XYZprinting costs $3500. In the near future, you can buy the device with a $500 discount. The filament will cost $35, and the one color cartridge price is $65. Manufacturers say that the 3D printer uses ink economically.
