Da Vinci Color Mini 3-D Printer
XYZ Printing showed off its new full-color 3-D printer at CES 2019, the Da Vinci Color Mini, which aims to print high-quality color objects for prototype makers. The Da Vinci Color Mini combines newly developed 2-D inkjet color printing technology with 3-D printing technology, applying CMY ink to a color-absorbing PLA filament as a way to offer "millions of color combinations," XYZ printing said. The 3-D printer offers layer resolution of 100 to 400 microns and a maximum build area of 5.1 x 5.1 x 5.1 inches, and weighs 52.9 pounds for easier portability. XYZ Printing is pitching the Da Vinci Color Mini as a solution for small businesses that up until now haven't had access to high-quality 3-D printing technology.
