Taking place in Las Vegas every January, the International Consumer Electronics Show is the yearly event to turn to for new tech-gadget highlights. During the last few events, also 3D printing companies including MakerBot and Ultimaker have taken the opportunity to announce their latest products.
At this year’s CES, from January 6 to 9, Taiwanese 3D printer manufacturer XYZprinting is launching an incredibly wide range of new devices.
Simon Shen, CEO of New Kinpo Group and its subsidiary XYZprinting: “XYZprinting has been assertive in breaking down the technology barriers in the consumer 3D printing market, by introducing easy-to-use devices that deliver innovative experiences to consumers at cost-effective prices. At this year’s CES, we are making an aggressive push in the B2B market by introducing new products and devices to our product ecosystem within and beyond the 3D printing ideology, while continuing the successes we’ve experienced with our accessible 3D printers.”
The new range of 3D printers includes the da Vinci Mini, offering the same build area as the da Vinci Junior, while being 30% smaller. The ultra small 3D printer has an expected MSRP of $ 269.

The da Vinci Junior also gets an upgrade – or two, to be more precise – with the launch of the da Vinci Junior 1.0 3-in-1 and the da Vinci Junior 2.0 Mix. The 3-in-1 version with an expected MSRP of $549, features scanning capabilities and Wi-Fi connectivity. A laser engraving module is also available to consumers as an add-on accessory. The da Vinci Junior 2.0 Mix (expected MSRP of $499) is capable of blending two colors by using a brand new, dual-extruding single nozzle that combines two filaments to create a print that gradually changes color. The da Vinci 1.0 Pro is now also available as da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3-in-1 model and targeted at designers, engineers and architects.
Moreover, an updated versions of the company’s low-cost stereolithography 3D printer, the Noble 1.0 Advanced (1.0 A) will be showcased at CES. The $ 1,699 device uses a laser to cure the photosensitive resin, producing higher resolution print objects with more complex geometry. The device features an X/Y-axis print resolution of 0.13 mm and a Z-axis resolution up to 0.025 mm.
The Nobel DLP prints with an even more precise resolution of 0.05 mm on the X/Y-axis and comes with a price tag of $ 1,999. The device uses Digital Light Processing technology to cure castable and standard resin.
But it doesn’t stop there. In addition to the above mentioned new devices, which are mostly upgrades to existing ones, XYZprinting is launching an all new 3D printer, the 3D Jet, based on Jetting technology, as its name implies. The 3D JET is capable of printing small, but precise objects and has a dedicated print head to print support material, which makes it ideal to print movable parts or parts for one-print assembly projects. Using a photopolymer resin through an inkjet, similar to a standard printer, the 3D JET produces high-quality prints and interlinking parts for large and small projects. The device is aimed at engineers, toy makers, entrepreneurs, project designers, and other prosumers that need a 3D printing machine that can build prototypes with a maximum size of 300 x 150 mm in higher quality.
Besides, XYZprinting will also showcase a post curing machine in addition to the Noble 3D printers, along with a 3D printing pen ($ 49) and their XYZmaker App to be released in Q1 2016.
