XYZprinting and Barnes & Noble Team Up to Bring 3D Printing to Kids at Mini Maker Faire

Taiwanese low-cost 3D printer manufacturer XYZprinting has partnered with Barnes & Noble to bring 3D printers to children at the second annual Barnes & Noble Mini Maker Faire, taking place in stores nationwide on November 5 and 6. 

Attendees will be able to try 3D printing for themselves with the da Vinci Jr. 1.0 WIFI 3D printer. Every step, from sketching a design to watching their creation come to life, will be part of the experience.

“The biggest barrier for most people interested in 3D printing is their fear that it requires a lot of knowledge about technology, engineering and design,” said Simon Shen, CEO of XYZprinting. “We are excited to work with Barnes & Noble to offer hands-on experiences that demystify 3D printing and show adults and kids alike how easy it is to design and create projects. Our entire line of da Vinci 3D printers was developed to offer people an easy-to-use, affordable and compact way to make their own creations.”


The da Vinci Jr. 1.0w works with non-toxic PLA filament and has a build volume of 5.9 x 5.9 x 5.9 inches (15 x 15 x 15 cm).

The Mini Maker Faire also offers access to 3D printers through a series of workshops, along with discussions from innovators and top brands sharing the latest trends in designing, building, creating and making.

“Barnes & Noble’s ongoing partnership with XYZprinting is an important part of our mission to advance tech literacy and break down the intimidation barrier to new technology,” said Kathleen Campisano, Vice President of Toys & Games at Barnes & Noble. “We encourage new Makers getting into the world of 3D printing to experience XYZprinting’s da Vinci Jr. 1.0 WiFi 3D Printer firsthand as it is demoed at our stores nationwide during the Mini Maker Faire this weekend, November 5-6.”
