Kogan now offering the cheapest 3D printer

The online retailer is now accepting pre-orders for the da Vinci 1.0 3D Printer

Online retailer, Kogan, has announced that it will be selling XYZ’s da Vinci 1.0 3D Printer at a price of $699, significantly cheaper than the $1499 price tag of the only notable 3D printer available in general retail, Officeworks’ Cube 3D Printer.

It’s a product that should appeal to those of you who have had an inkling to get into 3D printing now, but have so far been put off by the cost. The units Kogan is selling won’t actually leave the warehouse until 5 June.

The 3D printer has the ability to create objects up to a size of 20x20x20cm with ABS filament material, and it melts this filament out through a single nozzle. What all this means is that you can print out plastic figurines or any other types of objects that are up to 20cm cubed using one single colour. The maximum print speed is about 150mm per second (with slower settings available) and the finest print layering is 0.1mm (100 micron).

There are 12 different filament colours available for this printer, which look like spools of thread in a cartridge, and these are worth $39 each on the Kogan site (just like the printer itself, they are currently on pre-sale).

It’s a printer that is meant to be easy to use and also safe to operate. The filament cartridge slots in from the top, and the printer itself is mostly enclosed with a clear panel at the front so you can see your print in action. Designs can be downloaded from the XYZ Cloud, with support for XYZ and .stl files. It works with Windows and Mac via USB 2.0.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
