XYZprinting's Da Vinci 1.0 AiO is coming to Australia in April.

XYZprinting has launched what it claims is the world’s first all-in-one 3D printer for consumers, and it will soon be available to buy in Australia. The da Vinci 1.0 AiO is capable of not only printing 3D objects, but also scanning them, and will be available for $1299 in April 2015 via distributor, MMT.

The new machine gives end users and entrepreneurs the ability to use one device for both scanning and printing, with XYZprinting pointing out that it can be a good entry point for users who want to print their own models, but who may not have the understanding of how to build 3D models with the intention of then 3D printing those models. A 3-step process of scanning, editing, and printing is said to be achievable with a minimum of software knowledge.

In a press release, the company claims that its all-in-one da Vinci 1.0 AiO device can scan an object in 3D within five minutes, using a turntable, a 2-megapixel camera, and dual-head scan technology to achieve accurate results. Algorithms are used to fill in voids during the scanning process, and the editing process has a ‘smart-fix’ option to enhance 3D scans. It can save scanned objects in the .das format (for editing), or in the .stl format (ready for printing).

The printing process is FFF (fused filament fabrication) via a single-nozzle print head, with a ‘fine’ printing mode of 100 microns (standard printing being 200 microns).The printing filament can be either ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) thermoplastic or PLA (Polylactic acid). Maximum build area for 3D prints is 20x20x19cm, while the maximum object 3D scan size is 15x15cm.

It will work on Windows machines (Windows 7 and above) or Macs (OSX 10.8 and above).

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

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.

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

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.
