Following are some core features of Da Vinci mini Wireless 3D Printer by XYZprinting.
Colorful and stylish look
Da Vinci mini Wireless 3D Printer comes with an orange plastic case, which looks bright and stylish. The XYZprinting’s da Vinci Mini 3D printer surely positioned differently in design and style from another crowd of 3D black printers.
XYZ also offers an education-focused version called the da Vinci mini market. This piece is made of multicolored plastic, similar to the illegitimate issues of a Lego factory and a Terminator.
Software and controls

Most of the time print speed depends on the setting you are using. The da Vinci mini wireless 3D model can be fast or slow printer depends on the parts you installed and how a user is using it.
A normal quality preset which require 0.4mm layer height, it could originally be a high print of our thinker model which prints within four hours. It is impressive especially for the printer under this price tag and one can compare this speed with an expensive printer’s speed.
But If you use the good settings so it will increase the print time up to 6 hours. On an excellent quality print setting, this printer can take up to 12 hours to produce same size object.
In these settings layer, height is 0.2mm and it slow downs the speed because the movement of the print head goes slowly to improve the quality of the print object.
If an object is common and does not need a very fine quality so you can use the moderate settings so that you can print it out at an average speed. If some object needs to have a fine quality so compromising on speed should not a big deal.
Like said in above details of print speed, it prints very fine quality object in moderate speed. Customers are satisfied with both the print speed and quality.
The same scenario goes with print quality, as the normal quality produces quickly. If you wish to have a fine quality object so reset the settings of the printer, you will have the best piece.
